I’m trying to calculate Kcals for the Carb Cycling Codex. However, I get quite a descrepancy when using:
and simply using the rule of thumb that there are 4 calories in 1g of CHO, 4 calories in 1g of PRO, and 9 calories in 1g of FAT.
I have been caculating my daily total of calories based on summing all of the food of my calories. Then I decided to sum the protein/cho/fat totals of all my foods then using the 4/4/9 rule. At the end of the day I get a 225 calorie difference btw each method. Believe me, I have checked all my totals and they are exactly as stated on the website given above.
So, which way should I tally my calorie count?
