    WonderPug/Anyone knowledgeable willing to help

    I've tried figuring out my intake to cut but for some reason I can't seem to get the math right

    (9.99*88.9) + (6.25*180) -(4.92*21) +5

    (888.11)+(1125)-(103.32)+5

    2013.11-103.32= 1909.79+5=1914.79

    2872.185
    -500
    2372

    When I try to figure out the amount of protein/fat/carbs it doesn't add up btw I would like to eat 1.5 grams of protein per a pound just because I prefer meat so if anyone could tell me where I went wrong our help me with my macros I would really appreciate it!

    That's ~250g of protein. If that's what you want than 250x4=1000 calories. Then you'd probably be looking at 90-100g fat and 100g carb. That'd put you right around your 2300.

    (a) Lean mass (in pounds) x 0.45 to get your fat requirements in grams.

    (b) Lean mass (in pounds) x 1 to get your protein requirements in grams.


    [(a) x 9] + [(b) x 4] = your total calories to meet your minimum fat and protein requirements. Let's call this (c).

    Your total daily caloric intake - (c) = the remainder of calories you need to consume to hit your target for the day.

    Split that remainder between whatever macros matching your own personal preferences, being CHO, fat or protein.

    Of course, keep in mind that fat = 9 calories/gram, CHO = 4 calories/gram, protein = 4 calories/gram.

    Hope that helps.
