Default High protein, low carb, low fat diet?

How much protein should I be trying to stick to each day with such a diet?
Any recommended foodstuffs?

Any good websites?

Thanks in advance.

Based on a high protein bar wrapper the RDA is 50g (based on 70% of RDA
being 35g.)

Yup, the recommendation is based on body weight though so YMMV

US RDA is 0.36 grams for every pound of body weight. So if you weigh 150
pounds:
..36 * 150 = 54 grams of protein per day

WHO recommends .45 grams/kg of protein. Since 150 pounds is aboug 68
kg, 68 * .45 = 30.6 grams of protein per day to meet WHO guidelines

Howdy;

GENERALLY speaking, your body needs about .4 grams of protein per pound of
body weight for maintenance of muscle, etc..

If you are active you will need more.

Also, I would strongly suggest that you take a multivitam or two per day as
you will not get enough from a high protein diet.

Also have your kidney functions tested every couple weeks as this "diet"
plan will stress them dearly.

Regards

Dan

Is there anything I can do to reduce the chance of stressing my kidneys? IE.
Eating a particular food type every so often?!

What warning signs should I look for with Kidney problems or should I be
asking my GP about dieting and asking to be referred to a dietician for this
sort of testing?

It's always a good idea to talk to your doctor if you're making a change
in eating habits. You can be tested to see if you have any existing
kidney problems that you might not be aware of. If you do, then you most
definitely need to avoid too much protein since that can make things much
worse. If you don't currently have kidney problems, it might still be
good to occasionally get tested to make sure nothing develops if you're
intent on eating more protein than your body actually needs.

some signs may be high blood pressure, headaches, swelling, bad smell
in urine, etc.

What is the purpose of your high protein diet attempt?


Mainly weight loss. I also hope that it'll make exercising easier somehow,
ie. a little muscle increase if possible. I must say I am almost
knowledgless about these things....

I feel like if I ask my doctor about dieting I'll be wasting his time. Is it
generally the case that UK NHS doctors are more than happy to discuss diets
and therefore I shouldn't be too worried?

Many thanks for your help.

I have no idea... but I would be a little wary of radical diets.

How tall are you, what's your weight etc, how much are you trying to
lose?


6' 3" (190 cm)
14 stone (89 Kg)
Hoping to lose 2-3 stone (15-20 kg) [or convert fat to muscle somehow]
Age 23 years
No known health problems.

I have (I'm guessing in comparison with the average male of my age) low
muscle tone, strength and stamina (my g/f can beat me at arm-wrestling
[which isn't very good, how ashamed I am :-)]).

I also have a big belly I'd like to get rid of.

Any further thoughts on possible diet?

Many thanks for your input, it's very much appreciated.

Regards,

Yeah, forgot this high protein, low carb, low fat diet and just do low carb.
Lift weights, do cardio and eat low carb. I've lost 117 lbs so far, and I'm
very happy. Muscle, stamina, and strength have all increased, while fat has
decreased. Tone is greatly improved.

Doing low fat and low carb will make you miserable. It is likely you won't
be able to stay on such a diet for very long. Be sure to eat lot of high
fiber veggies.

And if you don't like low carb, then do low fat. But LC is better imo
because it usually prevents muscle loss compared to low fat.

A practically all protein diet? A really bad idea. 20% by calories
of protein is plenty. You don't need more than 70g protein - thats
280 calories.
