Hello free Athletes,
My name is Janis, I’m living in Portugal and on my way to achieve the best version of myself .
Therefore, I also started to count my calories and even purchased the Nutrition App.
My Age: 36
My weight: 95kg
First, I want to get lean, so aiming for a calorie deficit and loosing wait.
With the help of a formular before using the Nutrition app I got the following results (at the moment I mostly sit in the office during the day, before I was a chef, burning way more calories ):
45% carbohydrates 261g
35% Protein 203g
20% Fat 52g
Now to find out the Freeletics nutrition app average, I counted all the meals of a day together and got the following results:
2218kcl (with workout meal)
28% carbohydrates 111g
42% protein 162g
30% fat 118g
Without a post workout meal, I would end up on 1977 calories and as we can see, the Nutrition app is aiming for way more fat then carbohydrates (for me, that is totally OK, I even prefer).
I am just a bit doubting about the calories in general.
Before I train now blind one month and find out that I should eat way more, I prefer to ask here for help from you gurus before, if the percentage balance and the quantity of calories is ok related to my weight and age (I do the shred&burn journey, four times a week, and I love it).
Thank you all for your help and keep shredding legends,
