    I started doing the PSMF cycle in order to get as much fat off and sparing muscle. I'm 5'9 - 184 - decent build (bench 200x2, squat 275x1, deadlift 225x10) but a lot of fat on top too.

    This is the macronutrient breaddown I've been acheiving.

    % x Weight -> Total Grams
    Day 1:
    Fat 0.5 160 80
    Carbs 1.5 160 240
    Protein 1 160 160



    Day 2:
    Fat 0.5 160 80
    Carbs 0.5 160 80
    Protein 1.5 160 240


    Day 3:
    Fat 0.5 160 80
    Carbs 0.5 160 80
    Protein 1.5 160 240



    Day 4:
    Fat 0.5 160 80
    Carbs 2 160 320
    Protein 1 160 160


    Since I'm trying to cut to 160 that's what values I'm using. The morning after Day 2 I had really bad diarrhea and then after Day 3 I ended shitting a lot after I had some carbs near the evening. It doesn't feel like my stomach is messed up (no pain), it's just that my shit comes out waterry and messed up. Is this common when sticking to high protein/low carb diet? Is my stomach just adjusting to this or will is this something I just have to get used to while on this diet.

    Also - I eat lean pork, boiled eggs, baybel cheese, tuna, buffalo franks for protein

    for carbs I eat - spinach, oatmeal (for refuel), wheat bread (refuel), and yogurt

    I don't understand the macro breakdown. It should be protein with some veggies and fish oil caps, how complicated is that ?

    this is far from PSMF. PSMF basically = chicken breasts/shrimps and 6 fish oil pills a day + 8oz of milk, and some fibrous veggies. no idea what you are doing eating all that extra crap.

    you're averaging about 2200 calories a day, you should be at <800

    it works best for obese sedentary people, but it will still work. You shouldnt START a workout program while you are on PSMF but to continue a workout program is ok.

    PSMF =

    1g protein/lb bw
    10-15g EFA
    10-20g fiber

    Nothing else.

    i dont know, i didnt write the book. That's just what it says in there. I think it has to do with calcium and the casein also helping to give you a sense of fullness. Can't remember right now, havent read the book in awhile.
