Hi all, im just wondering how you actually work out your calorie percentage intake of fat or carbohydrates ect. Im trying to keep to a plan atm and being able to work out exactly how much of my calories came from fat and how much from carbs and protein would really help.

Cheers.

Carbs have 4 calories per gram, protein has 4 calories per gram and fat has 9 calories per gram. The rest is algebra 101.
