Intro to Calculating Macros

In this video we discuss the basics of how to calculate your macros.

When a dude-bro asks you "Dude-bro, what are your macros?" they're asking what your macronutrient ratios are.

What are macronutrient ratios? They are a a way of splitting up the total number of calories you eat per day into different amounts of protein, carbs and fat depending on what your goals are.

For example:
-The macros for classic keto are: 20% protein, 5% carbs, and 75% fat
-While the macros for bodybuilding might be closer to: 40% protein, 40% carbs, and 20% fat.

They are tons of different ways to split up your macros depending on your goals. In this video we explain how to do a basic, entry-level, breakdown of your macros. This is just one way to do it, and it's not the end-all be-all. But it can be helpful as a way to start.

To do these calculations you'll need your Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE). If you have an InBody scan this is easy to calculate accurately. If you don't you'll have to guesstimate with something like the following calculator.

From there you can use the guidelines we discuss in the video to calculate your macros.
