FORMULA FOR HOW MANY CARBS I SHOULD EAT

  1. FORMULA FOR HOW MANY CARBS I SHOULD EAT


    Hi

    can anyone tell me where i can find this formula or does anyone know it?

    Thanks


  2. Depends on way too many factors, sir. FDA would say straight up 300g. Keto dieters would say sub 100g. I'm usually at around 100-150g. It depends on your goals, your caloric intake, etc.

    very roughly - just for an example
    Maint. Cals - 2580 (@ 172lb - BW * 15)
    172g protein - 688 cals from protein (26%)
    76g fat - 684 cals from fat (26%)
    302g carbs - 1280 cals from carbs (47%)

    Build your formula around you and your own goals.

    Great post mate

    If you know your bodyfat percentage then you could work out your carb (CHO) needs per kg lean body mass (LBM)

    For most bodybuilding needs, 2-3g/CHO/kg/LBM is more than sufficient, some say it should be up in the 3-5g/CHO/kg/LBM range but I think this is probably more than necessary.
