Will lose weight but not quickly this is steady gradual process. (Also depends on what your diet use to be and exercise routine was before)
Start off by calculating a rough estimate of how many calories you burn a day with this website http:// www.caloriesperhour.com/index_burn.html choose whatever fits your lifestyle best.
Then divide that by the amount of meals you think you are going to be able to eat a day
it also depends on your goal if you want weight loss you can subtract 500 calories from your estimate to lose a pound a week or if wanting to bulk up have an excess of 500 calories a day, do not lower to where you would be losing over 2 pounds a week or where you are still hungry 1-2 is a healthy weight loss a week.
Calorie count the best you can if can measure out with a measuring cup, but don’t become obsessive, do your best, Do not count vegetables and fruits just eat till your satisfied.
They are the preferred nutritional source of energy
Carbs help you with increase brain function, increases endurance for prolonged exercises, also helps in the recovery process after exercising, and causes a "Protein Sparing" effect so that protein is used to increase muscle tissue and recovery.
Eating Carbs dose not make you fat, anything in excess will make you fat.
Difference between carbs, Complex and simple Carbs
Measure the difference between Complex and Simple carbs you use the glycemic index
The rating on the glycemic index is related to its effect on spiking blood sugar. This is important because when your blood sugar spikes, your pancreas secretes the hormone insulin to shuttle glucose from your blood into your body cells
Instead with slower absorbing carbs your body has a easier time of storing it, and the more energy will be stored in your muscle cells and help you feel more satisfied after your meal.
Complex carbs are usually high in fiber which helps with digestion, and help stabilize your blood sugar, keeping your energy at a stabilized level. Also contain many important vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. Most of complex carbs are more naturally occurring and not refined.
Proteins are found literally everywhere in your system. From your muscle tissues, to the enzymes that digest your food, to your skin cells, and even within your blood.
We take in the protein from the foods we eat and drink. Proteins get broken down into essential amino acids, 9 of them are essentials and the other 11 are non-essential
Failing to obtain the nine essential amino acids will lead to muscle break down and we must take in amino acids on a daily basis because our body can not store excess amino acids
The amount of protein needed from one’s diet varies from .36 times your body weight for a sedentary individual to 1-1.5 gram per pound of body weight for athletes looking to gain muscle.
Excess protein dose not cause damage to the kidneys or other side effects which were originally thought
Eating excess protein will not make you fat either just because you eat something with high protein value and you didn’t do any exercise that day dose not mean your body just made it into fat instead, calories in v.s. calories out.
Fats won’t make you fat, you need healthy fats in your diet, excess calories make you fat.
Healthy fats help regulate bodily processes such as heart rate, blood vessel constriction, blood pressure, blood clotting, and nervous system activity.
