FREE BODYBUILDING MACRONUTRIENT CALCULATOR
|My Daily Macronutrient Breakdown:
Here's what to do next...
Use the numbers above as a starting point and tweak accordingly based on the results you get.
Your macronutrient numbers are based on the following breakdown:
Protein: 1g per pound of body weight.
Fats: 25% of total calories for muscle gain / 20% of total calories for fat loss.
Carbohydrates: Remaining calories after protein/fat is calculated.
This is an extremely reliable breakdown that will work very well for most people in the majority of situations.
You don't need to hit these numbers dead on, but try to come as close as you can if you're truly serious about maximizing your results.
Remember: the workouts you perform at the gym are important, but if you aren't hitting your macronutrient needs each day with reasonable accuracy, you're greatly short-changing your results.
