Thread: Im a little confused and could use some help

Im trying to figure this food value thing out. Here is what i have so far.

8:30am
1 6 oz lean steak

cals 272
fat 13.8
carbs 0
prots 34.2

Fat cals. Ok in this we say, 13.8 X9 = 124.2 fat cals

carbs.0

prots, we say 34.2 X 4= 136.8 cals from prots.

so if the 6 oz serving is already 272 cals per 6 oz. Do i add the total serving cals plus the cals from fats, and prots, and carbs and add them all up to get a total. Which in this case would be

124.2
+136.8
+272
= 533 calories in the 6 oz of steak i consumed?

then with that steak i ate

3 large eggs with yokes
3 large egg whites.

in this case it is

"egg with yokes"
75 k cals per whole large egg = 225 cals
fat is 5x3=15g x9 = 135 cals from fat
carbs 0.6 "not enough"
prots is 6.2x3=18.6x4= 74.4 cals from prots

"egg whites"
16.7 cals X 3 = 50.1 cals per 3
fat 0
carbs 0
prots 3.5x3=10.5x4= 42 cals from prots

so with all of this

I have a total of

cals 1,059.5???? total between those 2 meals??

prots 63.3 g

fat 28.8g

carbs 0

I have actually had another meal at 11:30 and both times had a protein shake.

So am i doing this right as far as adding my callories and such?

Thanks

3. No, you do not add the total serving cals... fats/protiens/carbs is what makes up the total serving.

4. I still dont understand that BMR BULL****

then with that steak i ate

3 large eggs with yokes
3 large egg whites.

SO, YOU HAD 3 WHOLE EGGS WHICH IS 18 GRAMS OF PROTEIN, AND 13.5 GRAMS OF FAT (APPROX OF 3 LARGE EGGS) THREE EGG WHITES IS 10.5 GRAMS OF PROTEIN, NO FAT.....

in this case it is

"egg with yokes"
75 k cals per whole large egg = 225 cals
fat is 5x3=15g x9 = 135 cals from fat
carbs 0.6 "not enough"
prots is 6.2x3=18.6x4= 74.4 cals from prots

"egg whites"
16.7 cals X 3 = 50.1 cals per 3
fat 0
carbs 0
prots 3.5x3=10.5x4= 42 cals from prots

so with all of this

I have a total of

cals 1,059.5???? total between those 2 meals?? SEE ABOVE....

prots 63.3 g

fat 28.8g

carbs 0

I have actually had another meal at 11:30 and both times had a protein shake.

So am i doing this right as far as adding my callories and such? NOPE.....HOPE THAT HELPS...

Thanks

So when it says 120 cals. per 4 oz, and i had say 8oz then that would be 240.
then just add up the grams of each fat,carb,and proteing gram, per each serving size.

I have an almenac on its way. I hoping that will explain in further detail.

Now i am bulking, and I am on a bulking cycle
so do I still want to keep it at
35% prot
45% carbs
20%fat..?

if so It would be safe to say I need

345g prots per day
383g of carbs per day
76g of fat per day

10. use the harris-benedict formula to calculate proper nutrient needs if you don't know your exact bf%

11. ok something isnt right

66+(13.7x102.511792 kilos (226lbs) +5x175.26-6.8x25 which equals 2176.3 cals

Ok 2176.3 cals x 1.725 = 3754.11 cals needed per day? correct?

how do i figure the amounts up on this!?

ok I think ive got it

35% of 3754 is 1313
1313 cals of prots coverts to, 1313/4=328g of prots

45% of 3754 is 1689
1689 cals from carbs converts to 1689/4= 422.25g of carbs

20% of 3754 is 750
750 cals from fat converts to 750/9= 83g of fats

so my

35% prots is 328g per day

45% carbs is 422g per day

20% fats is 83g per day
and my total calorie intake is 3754?

DID I DO THIS RIGHT???? hell im kinda excited. thats seems like a lot of carbs though

13. call me and I'll go into it in detail
