If I ask you how what percent of your diet at the moment is carbs, proteins and fats, could you answer within a 25% confidence interval? Most people just eat and forget. When all it takes is a few days of tracking your daily intake and you will know more than 99% of the population. Protein is essential in your diet, but is not the be all and end all.
Diets are made up of all different percentages based upon certain factors such as your goals, your current weight, your budget, your level of ignorance, your willpower etc etc.
Example: If you wanted to lose weight, you would go on a diet high in proteins, low in carbs, eat some beans to get a good enough caloric intake so that you won't get tired, but also eat a lot of fats.
People wonder about this and always think it is a mistake or a typo.
'It is neither.
We need to eat healthy fats to lose weight.
A diet should be based around a high percentage protein, medium percentage healthy fats and low percent carbs.
Proteins are chicken, lean meats, eggs, beef, turkey etc Carbs are bread, pasta, rice, fruit drinks, puddings etc Fats are avocados, eggs, e.v olive oil, fish, most meats
A diet like this will leave you lacking in energy if you cut out all the carbohydrates such as bread and pasta, rice, puddings so...
Eat some legumes in each meal!
This is the meal plan used by most intense bodybuilders, if you can stand eating the same things over and over again.
One day a week (I prefer Sat) it is advisable to eat all the carbs you want to stop your body
adjusting to the diet.
