Ok, so I went and used scoobys calculator.
I am currently 246.2lbs and wanting to lose weight...hopefully around 1.5lb a week or so if possible.
Scoobs calc says I need 2875 for TDEE...2091 for BMR
with a light workout 3 days a week for about an hour it says to use 2156 cals for cutting.
I looked at my macros and started to first go for a 40/40/20(pro,carb,fat) split a day eating around 3 times a day. (breakfast lunch dinner)
but I got to reading that doing it all by ratio percentage is just kinda lame. So I went even further and made my percentages be close for what I need each day in grams.
I did 1g/lb of body weight for protein
.4g/lb of weight for fats
and the rest just carbs..
this gave me a 45/15/40 split (pro, carb, fat) to meet what people recommend.
If I do this and meet my gram macros each day and the cut cals of 2156, do you think I will see the weight come off like I am hoping? I know I will have to refigure in 5lb loss increments. How does this look??
