Hey I’m 17, when I was 15 I was 196 skinny fat, 17 now and I’m 138 pretty well built. I’m not that fat but I still have enough flab on me to the point where my 6 pack isn’t visible, the reason I know I have one is because I was doing jumping jacks one day just screwing around and saw the sculpture and was shocked those situps paid off.
Anyway I deicided to try the carb cycling codex to build some serious muscle and minimize fat gain. Anyway, I did my calculations but I’d rather get some opinions or perhaps a “eagle eye” So to speak to try and find a miscalculation I might have done, so here is my basic formula.
66 + (13.7x 62.6[138 lb] )+(5x172.7[5’8])-[6.8x17]
66 + 857.62 + 863.5 - 115.6
66 + 1721.12 - 115.6
1737.52 x 1.6 [ Moderate activity, going to school and coming home and evening doing one muscle group a day workout about 4-5 excercises, accurate? ]
So I took several tests online, alot of them assume I am a mesomorph, but I have been working out for two years and packed some muscle and got rid of some fat so what percent should I use? Thib doesn’t really have them displayed for meso’s. Anyway I used 10%
2674 x 10% = 2941
So recapping on my moderate days for the bulking phase
207g Of protein [ 1.5 gram per lb]
207g of carbs [ 1.5 gram per lb]
now to determine fat, so by multiplying 4 x the number of grams of protein and carbs I get my calories I am eating from them alone
4 x 207 = 828
4 x 207 = 828
828 [ cal from protein ] + 828 [ cal from carbs = 1656 calories ingested from carbs and protein together. So if my calculations are correct, I must ingest 1,285 calories from fat?
9 x 142g of fat = 1278
So assuming I did everything correctly…
Moderate day of > bulking < phase.
Total calories= 2941
Did I do this [ Espeically the fat] correctly?
Also will the 2939 calories I’ll be eating include the food itself or only the nutrion [ Protein, carbs, fat]?
Any time of advice or correction to my miscalculation would mean the world and more to me.
