TL;DR - what are the best ways (sites or apps) for calculating Calories and Macros?
I’ve been diligently weighing, logging, and tracking my food and workouts for about 3 months. With the exception of about 2 weeks in December, I have been in the gym 4-5 days a week, with 4 weight days (Chest, Quads, Recover, Overhead Press, Hinge, Conditioning, Recover reach week). I’m using MyFitnessPal app to log food and calculate macros.
I weighed around 220 lbs when I started back up in August. I got down to 207 in November. I didn’t weigh myself until mid-December and I’m up to 225 as of today.
The app is set for approximately 2200 calories/day. According to multiple T-Nation articles, I should be eating around 2700-3300 calories (12-15x bodyweight). I routinely log in about 2300 calories a day, yet I’m gaining weight.
I’m getting about 35-40% from protein, 40-50% from fat, and 10-25% from carbs.
What an I doing wrong? I’m completely honest with my food (of it doesn’t get measured and logged, it doesn’t get eaten, to the point that I bring my food scale to social events and family dinners.)
Any help is appreciated.
