    Unhappy how do i calculate my macros and calorries for a cut???

    Age: 27
    Weight: 270lbs
    Height: 6' 3"
    BF%: 29%

    I'm not exactly sure how to figure out my BMR for calories. Can someone share a link or the math problem so I can figure out what my maintenance lvl for calories is. Also any info on how to figure my macros for a cut would also be great. Currently I'm training one body part per day and doing 1hr of cardio broke into two 30 min sessions. I just need to know what my base metabolic rate is so I can cut 300-500 calories per week until I start dropping weight again. Please share the link to the info or the math problem so I can calculate that info.

    A little history on myself April 18th 2010 I jumped on the scale and it read 362lbs and my bf% was 50%. After roughly a year and half of halfass dieting and lifting religiously I have managed to drop a little weight and put on some muscle. I'm trying to cut down from my current weight of 270lbs and hit 230lbs by April 2012. As of the last month i haven't lost any more weight I have kind of stalled but all my lifts have gone up (which im loving). Any help is greatly appreciated

    no calculator is dead accurate. Eat a certain calorie level and monitor weight loss. At your height, start around 2600 and go from there, if you arent losing weight after two weeks fast enough, then skim off calories or increase activity level. If that 2600 is too high or too low, then it really doesnt matter, you need to know where to start through trial and error. Nobody is going to be able to tell you YOUR BMR.
    Here is how you figure out macros, read the nutrition labels and look at fat, carbs, and protein, those are macros, add them up at the end of the day and that will tell you what your macros were.
    There is always someone less fortunate, with real hunger, with real adversity, who made something of themselves. What is your excuse?

    Thanks for the info I used the bmr calculator that the site has and it says I need 4500. My initial thoughts were damn that's high I figured about half that.

    A couple of things I took into consideration when creating your Macros is;
    Protein Intake: 1 gram per Lean Body Mass (LBM)
    Activity Factor: 1.4 - Light Active

    Given those below is your macro breakdown for a -20% deficit;

    Grams ||| 192 Protein ||| 130 Fats ||| 144 Carbs

    Calories ||| 767 Protein ||| 1,174 Fats ||| 577 Carbs

    Ratio ||| 41 Protein ||| 28 Fats ||| 31 Carbs

    Total Calories 2,518


    I got these number from a program I created that calculates everything .

    What is your math on this? I would like to know so as my weight and BF% drops I can adjust it accordingly? From the link above I managed to come up with the following 2200 calories, 260 grams of protein, 95 grams of fat, and 355 grams of carbs? Maybe my math is off

    It is USING the link above, again with the following;
    Protein Intake: 1 gram per Lean Body Mass (LBM)
    Activity Factor: 1.4 - Light Active

    What did you use for protein intake and Activity Factor?
