Stats on Fitday

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created May 22, 2011 at 12:40 PM

I just joined the site and was wondering about the food stats what is good levels and what is bad? I would like to know what would be a good range to try to stick to.

My stats today were:

Fat (72%)

Carbs (4%)

Protein (22%)

Alcohol (0%)

I am working towards losing my last bit of weight. Do these seem to be good numbers to you fitday users?

OK, well if youre stuck then you've definitely gotta expend more energy. tough for you since so many things are not allowed. How about a rowing machine? If you can find someone to show you proper form it becomes a great exercise.

Yes I am a bit stuck. Plateaued is quite right. I can't seem to lose weight without fasting. If I eat normally I lose little to nothing often lose a pound one day and gain it back the next. Stuck in weightloss limbo. I have a hard time to fast when I am in school or having busy days, even with a stable blood sugar. Sprinting is not allowed for me, although I truly wish because I long for it, alas my doctor restricts it. :( I have snuck for some time and sprinted and saw results right away, but it is dangerous for me so I had to stop sneeking.

So, losing 20 lbs is your goal. Are you stuck? Have you plateaued and that's shy you're asking? If you're not stuck I'd say keep those levels, they don't sound bad. If you ARE stuck, you're probably going to have to start expending more energy and or cutting cLories now too. I'd say try sprinting if you can handle it. Fasted. That kicks up fat burning.

I would like to add that I take 3 tbl spoons of virgin coconut oil a day for the health benefits. That adds a lot to the fat intake. I also must admit that although I am strictly paleo, I am not a fitness and bodybuilding expert. Normally I do not follow any sort of typical workout regimen at a gym. I have lost weight from simply eating right and moving. So most of the things posted here to do with fitness and weight lifting leave me mind boggled, not to mention eating habits. It can be quite overwhelming. I do IF some 36 hour fasts and some 8 hour fasts.

Sorry about that, OK I am not an athletic, I ride a bicycle, walk, and swim (other than my daily activites) I do not lift. I weigh about 155 lbs an have a goal of 135 lbs. I have lost over 70 lbs before going paleo and 15 more after paleo in about 1.5 years time. I have workout restrictions which include, weight lifting, impact and resistance training.

Those numbers being good or not totally depends on your goal. You say "losing my last bit of weight." How much is that? Are you fit, fat, athletic, sedentary, superman, old, young, etc. We need some kind of stats to see if those numbers are appropriate.

From "last bit of weight" it sounds like you're already most of the way there and just trying to lean out the finishing 5 pounds or so maybe? If so, like jamie said, I'd assume your an athlete or at least athletic. So I'd say that you're not eating enough carbohydrate. if you're working out hard and not getting enough carbohydrate in your mouth I believe you are stressing your body. If I'm correct then cortisol would be high, perhaps chronically perhaps not, and that will hamper your leaning out progress. Trade in a lot of your fat intake for carb-intake.

What is working for me is a 40-40-20 protein-carb-fat breakdown. Consistent high energy, good work with the weights, good mental clarity, easy-to-do, keeping me lean while keeping me strong.

As you can see my ratios are quite far from yours. just pointing out that while all being paleo we can tinker with the macros A LOT.

If you're an athlete or if you are not an athlete, but like to workout, I'd skew it towards slightly less fat, but more carbs.
