Been lifting weights for about 10 years. I am not a body builder but a power lifter. Two questions but related... Has anyone been able to get stronger and lose a little bit of weight and what are your macros? Is it more important to keep your fat macros higher than your carb macros? I keep my protein around 1g per lean body mass. Carbs give me the energy I need to lift very heavy. And carbs help my post recovery. Should I eat more carbs and less fat on my heavy days? And more fat on my light days? Not worried about losing muscle mass...just want to get stronger. I know the more muscle mass the more potential there is to be stronger. I am about 10 lbs over in a weight class I want to compete in. I don't take any drugs to cut (or gain) and I don't want to dehydrate before weight lifting meet. It will be next year before I compete.
