The 80/20 Nutrition Protocol and Why You Should Go All in On Reaching Your Goals – Barbell Shrugged w/ Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Travis Mash — Barbell Shrugged #433

The 80/20 Nutrition protocol is the most overused saying in nutrition. It works, but you have to earn it, understand the mechanics of macros, and then you can grow into an 80/20 protocol, not start there.

Step 1: Find maintenance calories.

Step 2: Find the minimum amount of protein you need to build muscle.

Step 3: Find the minimum amount of carbohydrate you need to sustain energy

Step 4: Find minimum amount of fat you need for function, muscle repair, and energy.

Step 5: Fill in the remaining calories with whatever you want without constantly going over maintainance.

You have to earn an 80/20 lifestyle, not start there.

What is the 80/20 nutrition protocol.

Why most people fail using it.

Why you need to commit in order to be successful

The goal is to go all in and own your decisions

Why people struggle betting on themselves

And more…
