COUNTING MACROS & Such #broscience

Game Plan: Using an iphone app to track all my calories / protein / carbohydrates / fats to see where I fall – trying to follow a strict (90% paleo) 40/40/20 split. The only non-paleo part of my diet right now includes plain organic gluten free oatmeal in the morning  & a splash of cream in my coffee.

MAIN GOAL, EAT MORE.

Daily Food Breakdown:

40/40/20 SPLIT

123lbs x 12 (Low Intensity / Cutting) = 1,476 Calories Per Day (Rounded Up To 1,500)

1,500 Calories Per Day, 40% Protein – 40% Carbohydrates – 20% Fat

Protein: 1 Gram = 4 Calories

Carbohydrates: 1 Gram = 4 Calories

Fat: 1 Gram = 9 Calories

1,500 Total Calories / 4 Protein Calories = 375 x 40% = 150 Grams Of Protein Daily

1,500 Total Calories / 4 Carbohydrate Calories = 375 x 40% = 150 Grams Of Carbohydrates Daily

1,500 Total Calories / 9 Fat Calories = 166 x 20% = 33 Grams Of Fat Daily
