1. ## Is this correct?

I will be doing Babylovers' Starting Strength next week (3 times per week) and I just calculated my daily calorie intake using Mifflin-St Jeo method. I would like anyone of you guys to check if it is fine; I know that the figure is just an estimation.

Age:16
Weight: 55kg/ 121lbs
Height: 165cm/ 5'4

(9.99 x 55)+(6.25 x 165)-(4.92 x 16)+5
= 1506.98 x 1.4 (lightly active)
= 2109.772
~ 2100 calories

Bulking= 10% of 2100
= 210 calories
= 2100+210
= 2310 calories
~ 2300 calories

Carbs= 317 grams - 1268 calories
Protein= 1 lbs per bodyweight- 121 grams (484 calories)
Fats= 0.5 g per bodyweight- 61 grams (549 calories)

This amount is for training day.

I would like to know if I should increase of lower the amount of calories. I would appreciate any help from you guys.

Will repped, thank you.

2. You're 16, those equations don't apply

Eat well and eat lots, lift heavy and sleep
