Are My Calculations Correct?
This is my first post on the forum, so if there's a relevant sticky I missed or if this is the wrong place to post, please let me know.
So, I did my calculations for my Macronutrient Plan the other night and this is what I came up with, based on Ken Korg's profile. I should add then I noticed that Kelly Korg was a lot more physically active than Ken. I am also more physically active than Ken, but I'm male, so I'm wondering if that would effect the calculations?
Anyway, here are my calculations, based on Ken:
My Basal Metabolic Rate: 1721 calories/day
Activity Factor: 947
Total Avg Daily Calorie Expend: 1721+947= 2668 calories/day
Body Fat %: 21.9% (measured last month, need to measure again, I know)
175lbs x 0.88 = 154 lbs lean body mass
154 lean bm x 0.7g/lb protein intake= 108 grams avg daily protein intake
Goal: lose 8 lbs/month= minus 932 calories/day
Target calorie intake:
2268 calories/day minus 932 calories/day= 1336 calories/day
Target protein: 108g/day (432 calories)
Target carbs: 75g/day (300 calories)
Target fat: 171g/day (1536 calories)
Total Target Calories/Day: 2268
I'm not sure I quite understand the last part. Are my calculations correct? Thanks for your help.
