  • macronutrient intake

    I am 135lbs 5'8 wanting to gain weight and muscle
    I used the IF Calculator to see how much calories i need. i was wondering if these calculations are good for what i am trying to do

    Rest Days:2444 calories
    Carbs-238g
    Protein-135g
    Fat-105.8

    Work Days:2666 calories
    Carbs-265.8g
    Protein-135g
    Fat-118.1

    I do not plan on fasting and also i plan on eating 4-6 meals a day

    Instead of breaking your intake down to this level of detail, just eat a bunch of meat, fruit, and vegetables? If you're trying to gain weight starchy veggies and rice will help. Don't overcomplicate...in order to gain you will need to eat more calories than you burn.
