I am a college sports player and am looking to bulk up in the off season. I did the math correctly and if I eat what's recommended in Emma's guide for macros, I will be eating almost 5507 calories a day! My recommended is only 4800-5000 a day. Which macro should I lower?
I am a 6'4, 197 pound basketball player. I will be practicing during the off season as well as lifting heavy 3 days per week.
Thanks to JHarden I got down to an excess of +500 calories a day with my current macros.
