Post your current calories and macros

#1 Postby Nicholas_Weir » Fri Dec 09, 2011 5:55 am

Hey everyone, how are you going?

I have started this thread so we can all post our current calories and macros, as well as whether you are either:

Bulking
Cutting
Recomposing
or maintaining.




Here I will start:


Calories: 3500-4000 calories

Macros: (200-225g protein, 450-550g carbs, 100g fat)

My current Motive:
Bulking

Recomping for a little while then officially bulking. Was going to do the bulk first but I'm easing into it.

Macros: ~60/135/180
Calories: 1,800

I keep a long on tumblr (link in my signature), too.

I'm surprised other people haven't posted in this thread.

I wonder if people track their calories/macros as closely as we do, though.

Looks solid! I just saw your routine posted in another thread and I was curious: how far into your cut are you?

Don't rush it - the numbers will start dropping soon enough and two weeks is barely enough time for your body to start showing changes. In fact, I asked because I was wondering about your energy levels since you're doing a ton of work while on a deficit. And that's not a criticism - I'm impressed.

They are actually pretty high still. I had one of my best circuit training workouts ever today. One hour straight. Average HR: 150, Max HR: 187. I just adjusted my macros to what you see now. I was at 45%c30%p25%f. I think part of the problem is my sleep pattern due to my job.
