I recently downloaded an application on my phone called fatsecret to keep track of my calorie intake. After having created a profile, it said that I was allowed to take in over 3000 calories a day. I'm 6'2 (189 cm) and weigh about 179 lbs (81 kg). My first question is: is this an accurate calculation?
Secondly, I noticed that I take in around 80 up to 100 grams of fat a day, around 350 carbs and 100 protein. Them amount of fat that I consume scares me! It seems elevated to me because people who work out on a regular basis and want to look fit aim for 30 grams of fat a day. I try to watch what I eat and I believe I eat rather healthy compared to most of my friends/colleagues. Anyway, my second question is: should I be worried or is my intake of fat, carbs and protein completely normal?
Thanks for commenting!
Holy moly! If you really intake that much and look that good, props to you! Not sure if it's accurate tho! Sounds really high!? :-) sorry I couldn't be any help.
It all depends. I know guys shorter than you consuming up to 4k calories.
What is your goal? How active are you?
And fats arent bad. They are only high in calories. If i look at it at first sight. I would say you could do with a lil less fat and some more proteins. Whatever your goal is.
U look nice
Thanks Fathima, but you could have told me that in a pm, haha!
I'm using it as well. I'm 6"6' and weigh about 73kg and it's telling me to eat 4400 a day. I want to put weight on cos I'm kinda scrawny but I dont know whether to increase overall or try to just increase protein :s any ideas?
