    How can I work out daily protein and carb requirements?

    I want to start calorie counting, but can't seem to find any legit sources or HOW MUCH protein, sugar, carbs, etc. to eat each day.

    Is there a website or 'formula' to help me work out what I'm supposed to be eating each day?

    Generally for fat loss the minimum recommended numbers are: 0.8g of Protein per pound of body weight, 0.4g of fat per pound of body weight, the rest can be whatever you want (protein, Fat or Carbs) up to your daily calorie limit.

    There is no carb "requirement". It is the only macronutrient that is not essential to consume a minimum amount. As said above, worry about your minimums for protein and fat, then whatever you'd like to optimize your plan towards your goal. If you need more energy, you may benefit from carbs or more fat. If you need more satiety and the feeling of being full, you may benefit from more fat and/or protein. Etc, etc.

    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.
