Where do most of your calories come from, fats or carbs? I lost most of my weight eating under 150 carbs per day, but I switched to 300+ now (good carbs not sweets and such) I feel this large amount contributes to my cravings for bad foods. However, at the peak of my weight lost, I was getting light headed when stood up and felt sick. This could be because I was jogging in summer heat plus p90x, or do you think this was because my body just wasn't getting enough glucose?

I don't believe carbs are bad, there are just some that don't help out. Like you said sugar...that can be good at the proper time. After a workout I prefer fruit though versus candy or other sweets. Basically you'll be lacking the extra vitmains and minerals you could be getting from fruit (other healthier carbs in general) rather than from a candy bar. But you seem to already have figured that out.

Most of my calories do come from Carbohydrates, I have an intake of about 1800 calories a day. I try to focus on getting about 150g of protein and then fill in the rest with carbs and fat; that's easier for my sense, not for everyone though.

Basically the idea behind low carb diets is to have your body switch to fat, ketones, for energy. cardio done at a low intensity level (long distance running) will use fat as the primary source though already. If your body switches to ketones (apparently completely skipping muscle they would have yo believe) then your body will be burning fat 24/7 instead of relying on glucose. so your body could have very well been in a low carbohydrate state, not yet using fat, and you felt funny because of it; like you said dizziness. read these,
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/low-carb-diet/NU00279
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/carbohydrates/MY01458

what has worked for me (FOR ME!), like I said, focus on the protein amount, then fill in the rest with the carbs and fat (like 30% protein, 20% fat, 50% carbs). I also prefer to have barely any food in my house except enough to last me 1 or 2 days; just simpler to cut out temptation vs trying to fight it.

Are those 1800 cals net or total per day? I try and do Insanity a few times a week and it recommends 3100 cals a day, and this is not even accounting for my daily 3 mile jog which then states I should be eating 3600, which feels like way to much. I understand that will probably be net 2500 or so, but still feels rather high, but again this could be attributing to my wild cravings if I am only consuming 2000 total per day and I am possibly burning up to 900, for an adult male that might just be too low. Also what type of cardio are you doing?

This is what I hate about nutrition what works for someone doesn't necessarily work for another

apparently I need 2642.89 calories to maintain my weight of 191 lbs.(of sexy steel muscle). with a 500 calorie deficit that's 2142 calories. I don't see how I use up 2642.89 calories in a day though, I usually run in the mornings, lift at night, sit around and study or play games throughout the day. So I have a larger deficit, and I never go hungry at 1800 calories.

according to this:
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/cal...ulator/NU00598
I need 2900 calories a day to maintain my weight, that's way too much in my opinion. I'd recommend setting a number you feel is low enough and satisfying enough, then wait a few weeks to see results; then fine tune. If I feel weaker at the gym or tired a lot at 1800, I'll adjust it.

for cardio, I have a row machine in my house I do 30 minutes on occasionally. I've been running a shit load because it's nice out now, and I bought a cheap bike to go riding on. I generally do at least 30 minutes of one of those, shooting for 45 minutes; but I also listen to audio books so I don't get bored.

I don't look at what I burn from exercise, that's hard to estimate. I just worry about staying within my deficit.

I wish I could get into lifting, because muscle is more metabolic than fat, but i just find it too boring. Also, I would like to start a training regiment to run a marathon but until I get my cravings under control there really is no point.

I'm pretty sure you're body does burn more calories when you have more muscle (I can't find any source, but I have read this before). That's why if you plug in you're body weight into a calorie calculator you get an estimate base on weight alone (not figuring in muscle or fat); so I don't worry about cutting down more than 500 calories because you won't be sacrificing as much muscle as the Bros at the gym would have you believe.

and you can start training for a marathon with the munchies. If anything, it might be good that you're eating a little extra. But, don't overdo it

You find lifting boring but you want to run a marathon? Really dude?

haha yeah. I love running, my day isn't the same without it. Granted I can not do it on a treadmill, but 3 - 6 miles just fly by on the street. How do you guys feel about pre workout supplements such as 1MR, C4, Noexplode, etc?

lol, that's a good point.

bro, I want to mention, don't try doing a whole lot of different things at once. I remember when I started lifting; I was doing low reps, lots of weight. I'd run miles a day, I'd swim miles a day, I'd bike miles a day. I just got sick and weak from over-training. Don't try to be a body builder/marathon runner/underwear model/michael phelps/lance armstrong.

my personal experience, nothing. No results. You have to drink the workout supplement; so you end up lifting on a full stomach of water and supps, very uncomfortable. Plus, I feel you need to train like you fight/fight like you train. You won't always have the option to take a pre-workout supp. before you go to battle (metaphorically) or even every workout. Lots of people then find excuses to not lift because they don't have their supps!

I've tried a shit load of pre/post/during supps too. All the ones you mentioned, plus more. basically, they pumped me up for my walk to the gym, then 5 minutes in, the pump was gone and I got super tired. eat evenly throughout the day (unless you're doing IF) and your energy should be fine.
