    Wondering how much fat/protein/carbs per day.

    Used to follow 40/30/30 but I'm sure there is a better way.
    Is this good or is there something better?
    I weigh 130lbs and am very active. (Weight lifting 6-7 days a week, hiit once a week, tabata once a week, cardio circuit training once a week)
    Used online calculator.
    1427.3 x 1.725=2462 calories. I am subtracting 250 cals to start with = 2212 calories per day. (i usually eat about 2300-2400 calories)
    Bodyweight in lbs=130=grams of protein per day.
    0.5 x 130 = 65 grams = fat intake
    rest is carbs=277 grams.

    there really isn't any cookie cutter way for macros. you'll just have to keep your protein at 130g/day and adjust the amount of carbs and fat accordingly depending on how well your body handles carbs. just start somewhere and adjust accordingly. it really is trial and error which sucks. took me 2.5 years to figure it out for myself.

    What are your goals?
    ** read your bodypace. I think it looks fairly good. As above you can play around with it as time goes by.
