Calculate Your Macronutrients Intake!

There are three major macronutrients that the human body needs in order to function properly: carbohydrates, protein, and fats. Find out how much of these you need on a daily basis with this handy calculator!

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.

Recommended fat intake is far too low, way below 0.5g per lb of bodyweight...

Do we put in our current weight or our goal weight, and then it calculates to get us to that weight? I'm confused.

Your current weight. You should use the calculator to update your intake as you gain or lose weight.

Does this mean that these macro's are for our general maintenance or for gaining muscle?

I get a very low figure 1676-1956. Another calculator I have used estimates approx. 2700 cals for lean muscle gains at my level of activity.

This will be your BMR. This won't take into account your physical activity throughout the day, training, cardio etc. Also if you want to put a pound of muscle on per week, you'd need to consume an extra 350 calories per day on top plus what you burn on physical activity
