# Macros Help?

Hey.

I’ve been working out Macros for cutting but I can’t decide what would be best I’ve made 4 laid out but I’m wondering about your opinions and which you would actually think would be best for me, I run in the mornings post breakfast and train with Madcows in the evening, these are my selected macros:

2200-2300 Calories daily for 170lbs BW to drop weight.

50% Protein - 1100 calories. 1100/4 (4 calories to each gram of protein) = 275g

30% Carbs - 660 calories. 660/4 (4 calories to each gram of carboydrate) = 165g

20% Fats - 430 calories. 430/9 (9 calories to each gram of fat) = 47g

or:

40% Protein - 880 calories. 880/4 = 220g

40% Carbs - 880 calories. 880/4 = 220g

20% Fats - 440 calories. 440/9 = 49g

or:

40% Protein - 880 calories. 880/4 = 220g

25% Carbs - 546 calories. 546/4 = 136g

35% Fats - 774 calories 774/9 = 86g

or:

165x4=660Cals Carbs 30%
220x4=880cals Protein 40%
73x9=660cals Fats 30%

What do you guys think would be the better of the four in all honesty?

Thanks.

PS: To anyone that’s ever helped in the past and I’ve either blatenly ignored the advice you’ve given or I’ve ever annoyed, just thought I’d give an apology. Too many posts and too many routine changes = bad gains, bad rep.

i would set protein and fat first…then carbs…

protein - 1-1.5g x bw(in lbs)
fat - .4g x bw

carbs - the differential to reach your caloric goal…

i would probably do

protein - 200g
fat - 65g
carbs - 200g

Just an average 40/40/20 more or less is it not?

Also, I was reading on SS Wiki and the writer on there said about a 50/30/20, would that be efficient or should I more or less just do 40/40/20??

the exact percentages are not important…your body does not understand the difference between exact percentages…it understands total macro amounts…

Which is why I set the macros in relation to your BW…

There are many ways to tackle fat loss. Nothing wrong with a 40/40/20 split, though I recommend the carbs being the 20.

I think you’ll get similar results with any of those diets. Plus, unless you’re very meticulous with measuring, errors could make the one diet turn into another easily.

I like d public’s way of approaching things anyway.

They’re all similar enough to where you’d need to try it out for yourself and tweak the differences.
