I’ve been keeping track of my calories and grams of Protein, carbohydrates, and fats. When I add up the calories I get one number when I add up the macros (Px4)+(Cx4)+(Fx9)= I get another number… the number is like 500 more than when I just add the calories. What am I doing wrong? For instance my macros for today were:
P-354= 1416 cal 50%
C -235.5= 942 cal 33%
F-126= 1134 cal 18%
1416+942+1134= 3492 cal
I’ve paid very close attention, and have not missed any calories. What is wrong with this equation?
