HCB's Journal, 09 March 2014

Happy Sunday, Buddies!

PROTEIN - wow, it seems to be a real controversial subject with many opinions and ideas generated from my journal entry yesterday.

I appreciated everyone's comments and have heard many of them before since I have been around FS a couple years.

However, we must remember one person's successful plan does not always translate to another person's successful plan.

My interest is the comment that "excess" protein will be stored as fat...not sure I believe it especially since metabolizing protein actually burns more calories than metabolizing other macro-nutrients. And, I work out at a challenging level and am building muscle.

Anyone have 'real' research links about protein storage?


I will remain with the 130 grams or more protein per day for as long as I can continue to choke down tons of chicken, fish, eggs, etc., to see how my body changes.

Yesterday I worked out at
Orange Theory Fitness for a 90 minute class and did pretty well - my energy level seemed higher, so we will see what happens!

I am dedicated, determined, and diligent!

FYI... interesting. http://www.bodyrecomposition.c... I do know that when I began dieting, I didn't take the proteins, carbs, fats into consideration. Calories only. After I did the first body composition and followed the fellows suggestion, I noticed a big difference in how I felt and my ability to exercise. I upped my protein, almost tripling it. But like you said, what works for one...

I try to eat up to my weight in lbs in grams of protein. I hardly succeed at that, but I eat as much as I can. The amount usually comes to about 25% protein in the protein, carb, fat ratio. The amount of protein you eat should be in relation to the amount of calories you're consuming. I like to get at least 130 g of protein on a 1900 cal diet. Less calories would require less protein. But that's just how I do it. Protein makes me feel satisfied. When I don't have substantial protein I'm hungry all day. Protein is your friend! :)

Here is one from Woman's Health that sums up what I have been reading lately: http://www.womenshealthmag.com...

I remember that controversy years ago when protein started hitting everyone's radar. I think my favorite quote was from a nutritionist who said (re it converting to fat) 'Yeah, in BEARS'. And you're exactly right; one person's WOE is personal. If we were all cookie cutter we'd not be overweight at all, would we?

It's so true that we each need something different and have different health needs because we all have different bodies. Looking at your food you eat a lot of protein. I don't think I could eat that much but I'm not you. You know what I do like? The fact that you keep researching and trying. That is what will get you to your goal!
