To be clear, I wasn't referring to surpluses of hundreds of grams. If I recall correctly, Flexible Dieting suggests 1g/lb LBM. That doesn't seem or sound excessive at all. It sounds reasonable.

When someone exaggerates, it is to make contrast. To make a point more clear.

I just learned something new today after getting my body fat tested.

I've usually assumed 100 lbs LBM, so for me, 100g was always lot and that's why I had to do protein powders to get there, even though I was eating chicken on the daily. At my current plan of 65g, on a low-meat and mostly whole foods diet, I'd have to eat more food overall to reach 100g, which wouldn't make sense if I'm trying to maintain or lose. It's also unnatural and disordered to eat more if I'm already full, just because I didn't hit some magical number.

BUT, after getting my bodyfat measured, I'm just 85 lbs LBM!! And after re-reading that bit in Flexible Dieting, it says if you're doing mostly cardio, you should do 0.75g/lb LBM and if you're lifting, do at least 1g/lb. I don't plan on doing any heavy barbell lifting, just normal resistance training so I'd put myself in the 0.75g/lb category.

That's 0.75x85lbs=64g! by Lyle's #s. Ha! So I never needed 100g in the first place and it was my fault for previously overestimating my LBM, by underestimating body fat. Well...I'm glad to know I'm right on target by all accounts.

Despite the fact that measurements are always off, everyone overestimates their LBM. Me included.

Well that's good news for you then!
I always use 100lbs as my go too number for LBM as well - so 100g protein. I'm sure it's off, but I like to err on the side of caution so as not to lose LBM when dieting. Personally, I don't struggle to hit 100g/day eating whole foods but I could see how others might.

Good luck on your journey!

Hi there Mo! Checked out your log. Keep it up! I'm working on my steps too but barely getting past 5k/day. Goal is 10k which I learned a while back enables me to maintain weight even when I'm too lazy to exercise. I use the pedometer app (pacer health). It's surprisingly very accurate, which I verify every now and then by counting as I walk then checking to see if it matches. And whether it's in my pocket or even if I'm reading as I walk, it's still right. Even when walking on my treadmill.

Good luck in the new year!
