How can I convert my macros to calories?Updated 19 days ago

The focus for THE BOD is solely on macronutrients.

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]
