1. Know your goal (lose, maintain, or gain weight).

2. Find out your basal metabolic rate.
– BMR calculator: http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator
– To find your your lean body mass, you need to know your current body fat percentage. If you know your body fat or have a rough estimate, use this formula to find lean body mass:
LBM = weight – (weight x body fat percentage as a decimal)

3. Determine your activity factor.
– Sedentary = BMR x 1.2
– Lightly active = BMR x 1.375
– Moderate = BMR x 1.55
– Active = BMR x 1.725
– Very active = BMR x 1.9

4. Add or subtract based on your current goal. Remember that these final numbers are not exact and may be slightly high if you did not use your lean body mass (I didn’t include that part in the video or else it would be too long), but they are still a good starting point. You should track your macros using an app like MyFitnessPal and weigh yourself every so often to make sure you are working towards your current goal.

  1. Thanks for the video. I find the calorie deficit calculations very confusing and inaccurate. I’m a 37 year old sedentary job 5’8 male of 154 pounds. I work out with weights 5 days a week and spin bike 45 minutes a day. I think I’m supposed to eat a little under 1800 calories a day to lose weight, but I’m not sure. When I plug in my food and exercise into MyFitnessPal, it gives me another 300 calories that I can eat per day. Should I not log my exercise and just do the food?

  2. I wanna lose weight and gain muscle.
    So if I cut 500 calories I won’t gain muscle and if I add 300 calories I’ll gain muscle is this correct?
    Anyone’s help would be appreciated thank you

  3. i've been trying to figure this out for a while. I'm trying to build muscle and everything says something different. who the hell knows what's right?!

  4. im doing a deficit of 800 calories and gainig weighr what the fuck? also I train 5 days a week woth two day rest

  5. It cant be it’s telling me my calories are 3,323 to maintain if that’s the case I would be skinny many years ago

  6. Unless this guys workout is running to the moon then bench pressing it – he's full of shit, no way he needs nearly 4000 calories, what a maniac

  7. Wait a minute, so I'm about 200lbs, I'm trying to lose weight. Currently my BMR is 1,958 and I'm eating roughly around 1,500 a day while exercising frequently throughout the day. Is this bad?

  8. I’m sedentary at work from 8am-4pm. After that I hit the gym 4-5 days a week 1-2 hour workout sessions. Am I active or moderate?
