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
