I would say on a weekly basis someone asks me how to lose weight and fat or gain muscle and I've found myself repeating my words over and over again. I came across this handy calculator which will help determine your macros for your successful goal.
It's not 100% personal but it will help give you an insight and an idea in the short term. It will allow you to see what you need to do to make your diet work it work for your goals. I am currently working on a blog post that is 100% reliable based on how to calculate your macros for fat loss but in the meantime this will help the people who have asked.
The Step By Step Guide:
This calculator is relatively straight forward to use.
1. Enter your gender from the drop down menu
2. Enter your activity level.
4. Weight (Kg)
5. Height (cm)
6. Hit calculate your metabolic rate. This calculates the amount of calories you need each day.
*Note: If you are unsure of your weight in KG and Height in Cm's google conversion is a great tool to use.
Determine what your fitness goal is. Are you looking to gain muscle, lose weight or maintain your body composition?
Hit the calculate marcos button and this should give you number in grams for protein, fats and carbs.
Don't get carried away with this, focus on getting enough protein in your diet and try and hit your calories. Once you become familiar with what work you can start to play around with fats and carbs.
A great app to use to help you track your calories and macros is MyFitnessPal. Is really easy to use and it can really help you highlight some key areas of your diet.
