Can someone help me determine my macros?
I’m 38 years old female 5’6.5" and weigh 165 lbs. I’ve hired a personal trainer, and am starting to eat healthy and climb out of a deep period of depression and little self care (hence the approximately 45 lb weight gain).
I am eating approximately 45- 60 carbs, but around 36-40 net carbs. What I cannot figure is how many calories I should aim for to start and how much protein I need.
I have a desk job and am currently working out (weight training) 2x a week and 1-2 days of cardio.
Please help all this math is driving me bonkers!
Also, I know it’s a process determining how many calories I need–just looking for an average starting point for my fitness pal goals. And I have no clue about protein needs on this low carb diet!!
Thanks in advance
