Keeping Track

Written by Buff Gyal. Posted in General Info

Like I said before, I am going to be using the calorie counter online program that I constantly talk about and have listed under my useful links section on the Love My Muscles website. This is just screenshots of the Analysis page, which gives a break down of the grams of each macro nutrient you have consumed for the day. Along with telling you if you’ve exceeded, are below or at a good level of consumption based on the amount of calories you’ve selected to consume in a day. Also, it provides you a grade scale, where you know how much percentage of each; fat, protein and carbs, along with other nutrients or substances, you’ve consumed for the day.



Ignore the 6 nutrient part :). I don’t count my vitamins. If you see this on your own, it’s because you didn’t include a vitamin supplement in the counting of your calories, so they will deem it as missing, obviously. Remember, we’re more using this program for our proteins, carbs and fats. Other stuff, is just them trying to help us out but not necessary to include in the counter.

As you can see on the Analysis; I had about 1.5 grams of carbs per pound of body weight, about 1 to 1.2 grams of protein per pound of body weight and only 55 grams of fat. I am trying my best to keep the fats below 60 grams and thus far I have succeeded. The supplements; weight gainer and protein supplement, is making it very easy to reach my protein intake for the day very quickly also. If all goes well, maybe I’d incorporate IIFYM into my diet and see how well it works as my macros are being met very quickly throughout the day.

The only downside of this, is I am going to be hungry more than normal. The good thing though, I am going to separate my meals into 5 to 7 meals for the day, and no longer follow the IF (intermittent fasting) eating protocol anymore.

Keep A Note

This site will have different updates, sometimes on the same day. Because of this, it is best if you're following my progress via this journal, to read everything until you've read all the posts.

By doing this, you're going to get all the information that you need, to do this same program yourself. The reason I am updating so often, sometimes in the same day and not days apart, is because this is a progress journal. It will be here for me to speak my mind, in relation to this program I am on.

So please, yet again, to get most of this journal, read everything!

Thank you,
