Welcome to the Macro Calculator!
You can utilize this tool as a first step in figuring out your daily macronutrient targets. Keep in mind that this is a guesstimation based on the factors you entered. Using a calculator to get you started is a good first step; however, there are drawbacks to a calculator, since they are not as extensive as a coach.
If you need help hashing out your goals, we highly suggest a personalized macro consult to ensure a plan that is suitable, sustainable, and realistic.
Our experienced coaches take into account subjective information (such as breastfeeding, personal preference(high carb), dietary restrictions(allergies/Celiac), performance/endurance goals(triathletes, powerlifters), and medical conditions(hypothyroidism/hyperthyroidism) that a calculator CANNOT.
Our coaches have personally helped over 10,000 women achieve results with the IIFYM lifestyle. Get started with an IIFYM coach by clicking here.
