Hey guys,I'm male 22 years old I weigh in at 76kg I'm 181cm Approx 11% bodyfat

I use the leangains method for cutting, plus 10% on training days and minus 35%on my rest days My calorie needs seem to be 3000 on training day,this adds up to 450gr of carbs Which is a lot,does this sound right isn't that only a refeed number? Please help.

I dug out an old spreadsheet a quickly plugged in your numbers. Assuming the following:

• Height: 181cm
• Age 22
• BF: 11%
• LBM: 68kg
• Weight: 76kg

Your BMR works out at around 1850.

I plugged in a low activity factor and protein values of 2.5kg on an R-Day and on a T-Day (kept high as you are cutting). I've gone for fat levels of 60g on a R-Day and 30g on a T-Day. So your numbers work out as:

• 170g T-Day Protein
• 30g T-Day Fat
• 377g T-Day Carbohydrate
• 170g R-Day Protein
• 60g R-Day Fat
• 58g R-Day Carbohydrate

Unless you are an elite athlete, 3000 calories at 181 cm isn't the right number. The calorie requirements on the calculator are quite a bit off once you go above "lightly active."

Marius,

If you are happy with your composition, and not struggling to stay at 11%, then I say keep it up.

60% of your diet as carbohydrates would be a lot for me. If you are trying to loose weight and drop body fat, you may want to consider dropping some of those carbs in favor of fat.
