I’m 6’, 202 lbs, male, 22 BMI (via calipers) 34” waistline.
My goals are to looks the fat, so cut.
Ideally like everyone else I’d like to not lose muscle mass.
I work out 5 times a week. 3 days of weightlifting and 2 days of bjj. I’m getting my meals squared to where I’m eating healthier.
So no I’m trying to monitor my calories and macros.
I’ve done 4 calorie counters that range from 1860-2248
Majority were around 1996, which seemed on the low end to me.
For the 1996 it was saying:
PROTEIN: 150 GRAMS
CARBS: 200 GRAMS
FAT: 67 GRAMS
Which seemed about right on protein if your doing .7 per pound of body weight, the fats a little lower if going by .4.
the 2248 was
So I guess the question is, which calorie level seems more fitting for me? And are the macros right based on the calories?
I know the calculators are accurate, I figured you all have more real world experience.
