Maintenance Macros – 2018-07-20

I started on maintenance macros back on 2018-05-04 using Ted Naiman’s formula based on Protein to Non-Protein Energy ratio of 1:1 (grams:grams).

Macro Numbers (From Our BurnSugarNotFat calculator)

Current Weight: 167 lbs
P:NPE Ratio: 1
Protein: 167g
Carbs: 20g
Fat: 147g

Actual Macros

The median actual macros were:

  • Protein: 181g
  • Carbs: 28.52g
  • Fat: 159.6

This is a ratio of 181:(159.6+28.5) = 181:188 which is pretty close to the 1:1 ratio for maintenance. I have been at higher macro numbers than my goals but my activity level has been enough to support the higher macros.


My weight has been stable over the time period with some normal fluctuations.
