    Free Fat Loss Calorie Calculator

    The guy seems to talk sense most of the time (most...) in his youtube videos, plus he has the body to back up most of his claims (MOST...).

    Just found his site calculator, it's pretty accurate and I would say good for an initially guide for newer trainers out there who need a basic figure to calculate their maint/diet/bulk from. You can input pretty much all figures from meals per day and nutrient ratios, again, perfect if you need a quick bit of info or if you are new/need help setting up the basics.

    Another good basic calc for calorie cycling - Advanced Fat Loss - Carb Cycling

    Even gives a basic diet plan with dynamic intake results dependent on total daily calories, like it.

    Seems like a useful resource.

    His youtube vids are pretty funny, but also useful. Helped me when I was getting started. I just love his voice and the hat
    Want to save 5% on your order? Want to repay me for the awesome advice I gave you? Or do you just like the cut of my jib?

    looks decent but his ratios seem odd? for me it works out at 200g's of carbs a day on the low carb days!!!
    i consider that high carb!!

    This forum has a rather dysfunctional relationship with carbs, to say the least.

    I've seen "low-carb" defined as up to 20% of calories from carbs in various places. It just depends on your viewpoint of such things.

    Although that area is titled carb cycling (which is technically is, as crabs are changing daily), I would say it's good for planning calorie cycling.

    Hmmmm - this is what worries me (in over thinking mode of course lol)

    I take in just shy of 2300 a day, everyday.

    I work out thus;

    Monday/Thursday - Upper (all 3 x 8-10reps or less); Flat Bench, Pull Up, Shoulder Raises (lat or front), Bicep Curls, Tricep Pushdown. Sometimes vary the exercises, but you get the gist. Followed by 8 rep, 20 minutes of HIIT and the medicine ball twists, crunches and V's.

    Tuesday/Fri - Lower (as above); Lunges or Deadlifts, Squats (but they only have a smiths at my gym), Calf raises, Leg Press or Curls. 20 minutes of ramp up Cross-trainer (so from level 10 for 2 mins upwards). Planks.

    I'd say that is above moderate, so maybe I'm a little light on cals.........I'm there from about 7.15 unit 8.30.

    he's quoting 30% as low carb though. thats hardlys low carb. it's only marginly under a isocaloric diet.

    Tauren, lets not take this thread into another carb's 'discussion' theres plenty other threads on here for you to voice your opinion on it.

    Damn every thread breaks out into a carb war!

    Dont think about it; just eat to sustain your training. Always worked for me.
