Calculate Your Macronutrients Intake!
In order to achieve large gains in muscle mass along with significant body fat decreases, many hormonal events need to occur in the body. The amount of success that that can be achieved in these endeavors is determined by how much testosterone, growth hormone and insulin are produced by the body and whether or not they are produced at the right times.
These events are affected to a large extent by the quality, timing, amount and ratio of the macronutrients consumed on a daily basis. There are three major macronutrients that the human body needs in order to function properly: carbohydrates, protein, and fats.
The 3 Major Macronutrients: Carbs, Protein, & Fats.

so one thing i dont understand, how does this calculator determine how many calories you need a day without knowing anything about your activity level? I know when you go to calculate your BMR, activity level is a factor. And finally wouldnt your level of activity affect how much of your macronutrients you would need daily as well? of course all this assuming you werent on some kind of diet (i.e. low carb) and were trying to get the appropriate amount of macronutrients daily.
It seems low Bc it's not factoring in your activity level. For me, 3-5 days a week I multiply my RMR/BMR by 1.55 or 6-7 days a week by 1.75, this is a basic calculation but I hope it helps
I am so confused now... I want to gain muscle but lose fat, it seems all the info out there is about losing fat and nothing to gain muscle. My coach has advised me to have 120g P 120g C and 94 F my calories havn't been discussed as they'll sort them selves out, anyway I am seeing good results however am I doing damage to me? there is too much conflicting info out there...
