I’m thinking about doing the V-Diet in March (Need to save up funds for it) and it’s looking like in order to meet my goals, I will be doing the second calculation for 30(+) lbs.
That’s all good, but when looking at the recommended supplements (fish oil, flax, pb) I keep overshooting my total calories.
Obviously, one of the key components is getting 1 gram of protein per pound. Irregardless of where the protein comes from, I will be taking in 880 calories of protein. That only leaves me 370 calories for fat and fiber.
I can take in 30 grams of fat and 25 grams of carbs and not go over my calculations.
I guess my question is whether or not the ‘1 gram of protein per pound’ is absolutely important, or if I could drop it down to say, .9 grams of protein (200 grams total) to place into my other macros.
