hey all, i'm quite new to scene(3 months but am a regular reader on these forums) and have been making some noticeable gains. I've bulked and gained 15lbs in the last 3 months,now at 140lbs. However This whole IIFYM has gotten me a little confused. At the moment i've just been meeting the required protein intake ( approx 140g and have been consuming calories without tracking and have been gaining overall weight). My attempt at calculating IIFYM is..
protein -> 140lb x 1g/lb = 140g (140 x 4 = 560cal)
fat -> 140lb x .45g/lb = 63g (63 x 9 = 567cal)
Im confused with calculating maintenance calories but i think it would be around 1850 given my height and activity (approximation from various formulas). so to be in surplus it would be 1850 + 300 = 2150 for bulking
carbs -> 2150 - 560 - 567 = 1023cal. Divide by 4 = 255.75g carbs.
My total calories amounts to 2150(1023+560+567).
so therefore i need 255.75g carbs,63g fat, 140g protein. Does this seem right?
