Female
29 years old
Trying to lose weight
148 lbs
Size 10 waist which is 31 or 32 inches I believe
5'2" height
Neck 12 inches
Hips 48
45% body fat(not sure if that's really true, we went looking for a body fat caliper today but no luck)

Protein 127g
Fats 42.5
Carbs 438g(seems really high)

Lbm 85 lbs(seems low from 148 lbs)
Bmr 2206

Tee 3309
2647 Cal at 20% less for weight loss
Does all this seem right I am 216 6 foot male and she's showing that she needs more calories and more carbs than I need, might be right but just wanted a second opinion.

Thanks!!!

That seems like a very high TDEE. You need to post the formula you used. Also, fats are pretty low.

Sorry about that didn't know if that would help or not. Here they are
LBM = [Toal Weight(kg)x(100-BodyFat%)]/100 LBM = [67kg x (100-45)/100 LBM = [67 x 55]/100 LBM = 3685/100LBM LBM = 36.85kg = 81.2lbs

BMR = 370 + (21.6 x LBM) BMR = 370 + (21.6 x 36.85) BMR = 2206

TEE = 1.5 x 2206 TEE = 3309

CAL: 3309- 20% CAL: 3309 - 661.8 CAL: 2647.2

Protein: 1.5 x 81.2 Protein: 121.8g

Fats: .5 x 81.2 Fats: 40.6g

Carbs: Total Cals - [protein x 4] - [fat x 9] Carbs: 2647- 487.2- 365.4 Carbs: 1794.4/4 Carbs: 448.6
Conclusion: Proteins: 121.8g Fats: 40.6gCarbs: 448.6g

Are there different formulas for women that I should be using to do this. These numbers seems a little much.

first thing i noticed. should = 1165.96, not 2206

well first the TEE is actually 1750. You multiplied something wrong.

Although 45%BF is very high, so that may be off. The other calculations are correct but I would up fats a little because I am guessing BF is overestimated.

You need to just watch the scale and mirror (after the first week) to see if the changes are happening. If not than adjust accordingly.

45?!?! GODDAAAAAAAMN. That means shes pretty much has zero muscle ha. No way shes 45. 5'2 and 148 is a bit up there, but not waaaaay up there. If shes 45, then yeah her LBM will be about 82. Buy a bodyfat calculator. OMRON is what I use. Reviews are 4/5 stars and its about $30 on Amazon. It'll give decent accuracy. Mine have been consistent the past 2 weeks.
