    Is dieting all you're doing to achieve this?

    Nah dude I go to the gym. But nutrition is an aspect that I wanna learn more about and figure out. Everyone says dieting is half of it and gym is half.

    Its true, doing one will work fine, but doing both will work better.

    I think 200g protein is too much, from everything I know your body can only process 40-50g of protein per meal, so unless you're eating 4-5 meals a day you're just wasting time and money.

    Generally you would want to match gram of protein per lb of body weight IF you're trying to add weight, but 200g/day is pushing it...

    Also, and I kid you not, don't skip leg day. Your leg muscles are some of the biggest muscles, and account for half your weight. If you're not working your lower body you're literally missing out on major benifits to the rest of your body.

    And rest, make sure you give your muscles time to rebuild. I never work the same muscles more than 2-3 times a week.

    If losing fat is your main goal I think 200g protein is unnecessary (although not "bad" by any means). Honestly I wouldn't even worry about macros too much. A caloric deficit is ultimately the thing that's going to cause you to shed fat. It doesn't really matter too much if you have 100g or 200g of protein, or 300g or 4oog of carbs.

    Like I said, tracking macros is not a bad thing though. But if you eventually find that hitting X number of protein, fat, carbs every day is affecting your motivation then I say throw it all out the window and just focus on exercise and calorie counting. As long as you are at a deficit and not eating a bunch of junk all the time you WILL lose fat. Losing weight is really much more simple than a lot of people want to make it out to be.

    I did the macro tracking and bodybuilder bulk/cut thing for close to two years. It definitely got old and, for me at least, is not long term sustainable (And sustainability is the key to not getting in shape, but staying in shape). At a certain point I found it mentally and physically draining. And it was getting in the way of my social & home life too much. Now I don't track anything. I just lift 4 or 5 times a week, do 15-20 minutes of cardio per day, and try to not eat any processed foods. I'm not as strong as I was at the peak of a bulk phase, nor as lean as I was at the peak of a cut phase. But I'm in good shape, feel good, and most importantly it's a lifestyle that I feel I can live with long-term.

    That's just me though. You may find the macro tracking thing works for you long-term. I'm not trying to talk you out of it as much as I am just saying there's no "one way" and there's no magical macro target for losing weight.
