    Calculating certain macros

    Hello y'all

    I am new to this forum and I am reading some of the pinned posts relating to Nutrition and Exercises. I just have one question. Right now I am cutting whilst training 4x a week weight-lifting and 4x a week cardio. I am pretty lean and right now I am 185lbs (5' 10''). I am 30 years old (not 50 as it says below my name). But I am cutting down slowly to 170lbs. I have a question related to calculating certain foods. For instance, my favourite treat consists of French macarons. However, most brands which usually have like 5 different flavours in one box only gives the macros generally, i.e. per 100g, 18 fat, 53 carbs and 9 protein. But I can assume that the salted caramel macaron is higher in carbs than the dark chocolate macaron. So how will I calculate different flavours? This also happens when I buy ice cream sometimes which has like 3 flavours but nutritional info is given generally.

    Thank you

    Over time, it doesn't matter.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Formerly LactoseTolerant. I'm not very imaginative.

    Use the same calorie level for all flavors and it will average out over time. There's no real need to be that specific for something like this.
