You need to put the height in inches. 69 inches would be your height.

So I’m a little confused on the accuracy of my Apple Watch. Especially since the last update. I’ll give you some info and you tell me if it makes sense. I’m a 34 year old male at 230lbs and 5’8

On a totally lazy day where I don’t do much but hang around the house it’ll say I burned 2800 calories. Does that seem reasonable?

On days I go to work, it’ll say I burned 3200 and I only got 10,000 steps. So not sure how accurate this is

Eat white rice, rolled oats for the carbs. 150g of rolled oats with protein powder, mixed berries and 125ml of full cream milk with 600mls of water is around 850cal, that's my breakfast daily .
Eat red meat, fish (can of tuna) olive oil for your fats...

Keep in mind try to keep fats below around 88g per day...
High cards with high fat intake will put on fat body fat.
I think your total cal intake is high too..
I train in powerlifting I'm 105kg at 191cm .. my cal intake is 2600per day .. I'm gaining lean mass and keeping fat to 16%. Increasing in strength weekly :)

I'm an 82 yo ectomorph. I work out 6 days/wk ... balance of free weights, machines, and cardio (rowing). Over the last 4 years, I've developed some stubborn belly fat. My fat percentage is about 16% and BMI of 21. I'd like to put on weight but when I step up the calories (the right kind), weight goes to my belly. When I try to lose the belly fat with a lot of HIIT and caloric reduction, my face, arms, and legs looks thin and there's no loss of belly fat. Any thoughts

Just had some questions regarding my results, I’m 5’11” 182lbs and I train 6-7 days a week. It says I should be eating 3444 calories a day. Is that simply to maintain weight? If so how much should i be consuming more in order to gain lean quality muscle.

You're about where I started out at so I understand how hard it is. It sounds like you want to gain muscle mass, so I'll assume you're doing the right workouts. Then that means you need to eat more! These calculators aren't perfect, and you need to add about 300-500 cal over your daily rate. Like I said, I was very similar to your size and was told 2700 cal to maintain. I ate 3300 cal/day and that was enough for me. So if your workouts are on point, you need to eat more. The only way I was able to was using mass gainers (ON Pro Gainer or Up Your Mass are good, or blend your own milk, protein, PB, oats, etc shakes) and drink those calories down.

Hi Jorge,

Convert to inches or cm based on the values you select. Only enter in numbers to the calculator.

Hope this helps!

Im 15 years old and im 99 kilos. I started exercising like 1 year ago, but i ate whatever i wanted. Currently i started eating healthy(like eating no bread no sugars and no sparkling stuff). My current meals are- 2 egg omlette(with spinach and some cheese) /100g chicken + 100g of rice +vegetables / salad with 2 eggwhites or i change the omlette for oatmeals. I train 4/5 times a week. My training consists of 3 km running at about 9speed(1.5 km at the beginning of the workout nad 1.5 at the end). Then i lift weights for about 1.5 hr. I eat arround 1200/1500 calories a day. My question is will i lose weight and if not PLEASE tell me where im mistaking and how to eat and train to lose some weight. I will be so thankful if someone decides to help one freaked out teenager!

If you want to build muscle,you have to eat more than 1500 calories,I'm 14,and not eating enough is was caused my first few months in the gym to produce almost zero gains,don't make the same mistake I did,I started eating for gains 2 months ago,basically all of my strength came after that.

I just want you to caution yourself against any type of extremes..as you are only 15 years old and your body is naturally going hough extreme changes...also I'm curious as to how tall you are if you are male or female and the type of build you have...ex. slow to build muscle long list by or stocky build etc. .. just with the amount of cardio and weight training weekly I would say you are under the recommended caloric intake

Myself weigh 156 pounds currently. I started workout (2-3 days a week) and 12 colorie diet 5 weeks back when I was 161 lb. I went down to 154 in 2 weeks and now from last 3 weeks I am at 156, not sure what is wrong. I am on low carb and high protein diet and working out 3 days a week (M W F) and +2 days cardio walking (Tue and Thu).

There is a process when exercising where you are gaining muscle while losing fat, just remember that muscle weighs more than fat. There is a transitional period of sorts where it seems you aren't losing anything, but you really are, you are trading fat for muscle. Don't be discouraged, it may take a few weeks for your body to adjust. Right now your body probably thinks you are starving it and it wants to hold onto that fat. Just be patient.

18 year old male. Im about 178cm tall, I weigh 62 kg and I try to do weight training 3-6 times a week. I put my details into a Body Fat Calculator and my score was 2.8%. I also put my details into the BMR and was recommended a calorie intake of 2600 cals, but I know that I eat no where near that amount. How can I effectively eat more to build muscle without putting on any fat? pls help.
