In theory, combining my Protein, Fat, and Carb results should yield a good set of maintenance macros. To do this I took the data and fit it to linear trendlines. The y-axis is weight change the day following the macro. Solving each of the equations for the Y-axis intercept gives the grams that result in the change from weight loss to gain the following day.
Re-running the trendline data as linear gives the following graphs.
Y Intercept Values
- Protein = 1.3802/.0066 = 209g = 837 kcal
- Fat = 1.8728/0.0144 = 164g = 1478 kcal
- Carbs = 0.7587/0.027 = 28 = 112 kcal
- Total Calories = 2427 kcal
This compares fairly well to the total calories Y-axis intercept value of 2.5254/0.0011 = 2296 kcal (about 5% difference). My median consumption was 2231 kcal.
Averages Across 150 Days
My averages across the 150 days is:
- Protein = 193g
- Fat = 155g
- Carbs = 24g
- Total = 2462 kcal
My conclusion is that my current maintenance numbers are pretty close.
