How the Macronutrient Calculator Works
In order to find your macros, I ask a few simple questions about your body type, activity level, and lifestyle.
First, you describe your body. Including your current weight, gender, body composition, and body type.
A point often overlooked is that lean mass is the biggest contributor to your calorie needs. However, you might not know your body composition numbers.
Therefore, I made it easy to find your body fat percentage with a simple visual comparison. Also, if you’re unsure about your body type, take this easy quiz:
Next, I give you a few options to describe your daily activity. Like whether you sit or walk alot during the day. This is your baseline excluding exercise.
Then you choose how many days per week you exercise. As well as the duration and type of exercise.
Lastly, you provide some information about your schedule and your goal. This allows us to adjust your macros for fat loss, muscle gain, or body recomposition.
Once you complete the macronutrient calculator, you’ll get your results instantly. A simple table showing your personal carb, fat, and protein targets based on your your goal.
However, the macronutrient calculator only gives you about half of the nutrition puzzle. To get the other half, you need a personalized meal plan.
