    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I don't get how I'm supposed to hit 3000 calories on my workout day keeping fats low. Even with a nauseating 200g of protein (probably never really get more than 150) and 400g of carbs I'm still left with 600 of calories I still need to consume. fat is supposed to be kept low on workout days in favor of carbs, so wtf?

    You could consume a bunch of fruit juice for easy, low fat calories. Or beans/rice.

    There's people who weigh and measure food here so mebe they can help me out. What's the best food tracker? I'm playing around with swole.me because it seems to be the only one that will give you a meal plan based on your macros. To me that is super valuable because I have no clue what 2.1k calories 40% protein 25% carbs, 35% fat looks like on a plate.

    Will that give you a meal plan if you plug in foods?

    Yes really. I've never dieted before or measured food. I know what 5-6k calories looks like but now that im dealing with limited calories with certain macros sorta piecing together my meals is a challenge.

    That's a contradicting statement. You DON'T know what 5-6k looks like if you've never measured food.

    It's not really the calories, it's the macros.

    Do you know math? I mean seriously man, I don't see what the problem is.

    You need 40% protein? take 40% of the calories you need. 40% of 2100 is 840. So, you need 840 calories coming from protein. There are 4 calories in a gram of protein.

    Same for everything else.

    8 or 9 calories in a gram of fat right?

    After a week or two you will get the hang of it. I use fitday.com because I now have a good list of custom foods that cover 90% of what I eat so it's really quick to plug in my meals.

    Yea, maybe I will. First day I totally undershot my calories and overshot my fat.

    Don't wait until the end of the day to log calories, esp when you are first starting. Log after your 1st or 2nd meal so you can see how you are tracking for the day.

    Cool, I did that today. Noticed I was behind on protein and ate a can of tuna real fast.
