The best online calorie and macro calculator
Start losing fat and building muscle from day one by knowing exactly how many calories you should be eating
Losing fat, building muscle, and feeling comfortable in your own skin isn’t the complicated dark art you’ve been led to believe. Let me explain...
Hey, I made this awesome calorie and macro calculator to solve your biggest headache, and it might ruffle a few feathers.
Because some coaches like to hide their "secrets" of how this is done.
After all, if they showed how to do it for yourself, why the hell would you pay them? It’s self-preservation.
It makes business sense.
Call me a shit businessman, but I don’t see things the same way.
Because calories and macros are step one of a marathon. And I want you to get off to the best possible start.
So think of me as the magician who sticks two fingers up to the magic circle and shows you how they saw a lady in half!

THE CALORIE AND MACRO CALCULATOR
YOUR CALORIES EXPLAINED
BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate): This is the number of calories your body burns if you did nothing all day. Think of BMR as your 'Couch Potato Calories'. If you sat on your butt all day and watched Netflix, you'd still burn calories. This is your BMR.
TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure): Take your BMR and factor in how active you are during the day, including all your training and this is how many calories you burn on average each day. These are your maintenance calories. Eat this amount and you'll neither lose nor gain weight.
Calorie Deficit / Surplus %: To lose weight/body fat you need to be in a calorie deficit, ie eating less than your TDEE. So use the negative percentages to do this. If your goal is to build muscle, a small surplus is optimal (though not always necessary). Therefore, select positive percentages to create an energy surplus.
Target Calories: Using all the information you've entered, this is the amount of calories you need to consume to achieve your goal.

YOUR MACROS EXPLAINED
PROTEIN: Protein helps you build muscle #gains. And it minimises hunger by keeping you feeling fuller for longer.
FAT: Fat doesn’t make you fat. In fact, it’s essential for health, so don't avoid it.
CARBS: Carbs aren’t essential, but they are the body’s preferred source of energy and a good source of fibre. So have them if you want.
