Not quite sure. I have calculated my BMI using several tools on the internet and I fall somewhere between 19 - 20%. I am pretty happy there, though a little less jiggle would be nice! But, as for my lbm, I get somewhere between 70 - 74 lbs - but all the calculators say I need to lose body fat so I am not sure exactly what my goal number should be in terms of protein intake. I track sometimes on dailyplate and it says that I need 43g protein. According to th BP I need 1g of protein per lbm which would put me around 70. Is that right? Or do you only need 1g if you are trying to build mass, which I am not. It was suggested to someone else on these boards that they do .5g protein per lbm - much more doable for me, and I dont want extra protein stored as fat. Thoughts would greatly be appreciated! Oh, I am 4'10.5, 97 lbs if that helps. TIA! Just trying to maintain here, eh, mostly. If I could skim a little off the old saddle bags that surely wouldnt hurt!
No announcement yet.
what is my lbm?
