WHY YOUR WEIGHT LOSS STOPPED To date, I’m still an advocate of tracking macros. While this isn’t a necessity for everyone, I believe this is the best method of approaching your diet if you want to get lean. When it comes to fat loss, you must be in a caloric deficit. If you aren’t tracking, you might be eating more than you realize, so today let’s talk about how to set up your macros. Despite the different methods of calculating that exist today, I’ve used the same one for years. It’s simple and effective, so grab a pen and paper and let’s dive in. 1) Find your maintenance calories by multiplying body weight by 14-16. The more active you are, the higher on the scale of 14-16 you can go. 2) Create your deficit by subtracting calories. Start with as little as 250, or as high as 500. 3) Find your protein intake by multiplying body weight by as little as 0.75, or as high as 1.25, depending on body composition. The higher body fat percentage you have, the less protein you need. (For the majority of people, I find one gram of protein per pound of body weight is sufficient). 4) Find your dietary fat intake by multiplying body weight by as little as 0.3 to as high as 0.4. If you’re somebody who’s all about avocados and peanut butter, you may want to opt for the 0.4 route. 5) Find your carb intake. Start by finding the total calories your protein and fat goals make up. Multiply your protein intake by 4 (since each gram is 4 calories), and multiply fat by 9 (since each gram is 9 calories). Take those totals and subtract them from the number you calculated as your deficit in Step 2; these are the calories you have left. Divide this number by 4 (since each gram is 4 calories). 6)Remember, no set of initial numbers are ever PERFECT. Adjustments will have to be made eventually. What’s most important is making sure that you have your numbers, and that you hit them ACCURATELY and CONSISTENTLY. If you’re seeing progress on your macros, stay on them. If you notice the scale hasn’t moved in awhile, it may be time for an adjustment. This is by no means an exhaustive guide. If you want to see me go much further in-depth, just search “Christian Guzman macros” on YouTube. ✌️
