Calculating your macros for any diet plan is one of the toughest thing that we face. First of all you need to realize what is your goal.There can be two possibilities.
- Fat Loss / Get Shredded / Build Muscle / Get Lean, so to achieve this we need to go in Calorie Deficit Diet which means you need to eat less than your daily calorie requirement.
- Gain Weight / Put on Muscle Mass / Gain Strength, so in order to achieve this we need to go in calorie surplus diet and it varies from men to women, so we need to eat more than our daily calorie requirement.
So, realization of your goal is a key factor in order to calculate your macros.
