Need help with diet

#1 Postby Kasparr221 » Sat Oct 15, 2016 7:35 pm

Hello all, i'm really new to the vegan scene and I am looking for some help. I'm currently 5'9, 83kgs (not too sure about bodyfat, guessing like 14-18%), I am currently doing the Layne Norton Phat routine on a cut, my macros are 187 protein, 250 carbs, 83 fat (2500 cal total) (was eating meat) and i'm looking to transition to full vegan on 2.6k calories with P143 C377 F 57. should I bring my calories a lot higher ?

Thanks!

Different way of viewing weight loss identifies the problem as not one of consuming too many calories, but rather the way the body accumulates fat after consuming carbohydrates—in particular the role of the hormone insulin. When you eat a meal, carbohydrates from the food enter your bloodstream as glucose. In order to keep your blood sugar levels in check, your body always burns off this glucose before it burns off fat from a meal. eat a carbohydrate-rich meal, your body releases insulin to help with the influx of all this glucose into your blood. As well as regulating blood sugar levels, insulin does two things: It prevents your fat cells from releasing fat for the body to burn as fuel (because its priority is to burn off the glucose) and it creates more fat cells for storing everything that your body can’t burn off. The result is that you gain weight and your body now requires more fuel to burn, so you eat more. Since insulin only burns carbohydrates, you crave carbs and so begins a vicious cycle of consuming carbs and gaining weight.

If you are hell bent consuming a high carb diet, ensure you always have protein with them, itll keep your blood sugar levels more stable.
