Hey everyone. Im trying to figure out my macros, but I dont know if its coming out right. Here is what I came up with so far. Any help on fixing this if it is incorrect, would be much appreciated.

Male
6’2
192 lbs
About 8-10% BF

Mifflin-St Jeor formula

BMR = 902
TEE = 1353
Protein = 225 g x 4 = 900 calories
Fats = 90g x 9 = 810 calories
Carbs – 340 g x 4 = 1360 calories
Total Calories = 3070

I workout with high intesity 4-5 days a week. I include about 15-20 minutes of cardio each time, incline walk, eliptical, jog


Thanks
Jon

No idea how you ended up calculating your BMR to be 902 calories. When I run the math I get 1991 for your BMR and about 2775 for your TDEE.

That is WAY low. Please rerun your numbers. I use Katch-McArdle.
