    Probably a dumb question but I'm going to ask anyway

    can someone double check my macro math?

    I'm going to try this cutting thing. So my understanding is that; Y=1 gram protein x 1 pound body weight (136) X=0.3 grams fat x 1 pound body weight (136) so I am 62 kg which is 136 pounds. (Y x 4) + (X x 9) = 544 + 367.2 = 911.2 The BMR thing suggested I eat 2,218.05 cals for my level of...
