I used the sticky thread to try to figure out my daily calories. Can someone check my math or tell me if this seems like too much to you? I used the last formula.
I weigh 134 bodyfat is 18.5 using calipers. 60.8 is weight in kg.
I used 1.5 multiplier because I do go to the gym at least 3 times a week and recently it has been more like 4 or 5.
So I got bmr of 1441
Plus activity. 2161
Gain 10%. 2733 because I am trying to gain lean muscle. However I don't think I have ever gotten close to 2400 a day in my life!! I don't know how I can find time to eat that much. Plus the breakdown for nutrients is as follows for the maintenance cals of 2485
Protein 136 grams 2x lbm 544 cals
Fat 75 g (1.5 per lbm) 675 cals
Which leaves carbs of
316 g. 1266 cals
This seems crazy to me. Is this correct or would you suggest I figure something differently? Thanks for any help!
