How can I convert my macros to calories?

The focus for THE BOD is solely on macronutrients. We designed the Flexible Dieting feature of THE BOD app to only show the macronutrient breakdown (Carbs, Protein, Fats, Fibre, Sugar) and not the calorie breakdown. This is to eliminate the confusion when calories and macronutrients don’t equate to zero at the end of the day.

If you are wanting to calculate the calorie intake of your tracked macronutrients for your own information, you can use the below formula:

(Carbohydrates grams x 4) + (Protein grams x 4) + (Fats grams x 9) = Calories

Let's use an example of someone with the following allocated Macros to show how this formula would work.

280g Carbohydrates | 115g Protein | 65g Fats

(280g x 4) + (115g x 4) + (65g x 9) = 2165 Calories

If you are having any trouble doing this on your own, or have any further Macros vs Calorie questions, then please contact us at: [email protected]
