How to Calculate Macros For Lean Bulking (In Less than 5 Minutes!!)

Today I’ll be teaching you how to calculate your Macros (Protein, Carbs, and Fat) in order to bulk-up, while staying lean! This super quick tutorial (less than 5 minutes long!!) will walk you through the basics of setting up your diet. I’ll begin this step by step tutorial by first showing you how to calculate the amount of calories you need to gain weight. From there, I’ll then get into splitting up those exact calories into the appropriate amount of Protein, Carbs and Fat to bulk-up without putting on fat.

The benefit of knowing your specific macros is incredibly important. For 1, the exact amount of Protein, Carbs, and Fat are entirely unique for every guy. Therefore, simply following your favorite bodybuilder’s or your gym buddy’s macros will not be an effective solution for you. We’ll be taking into account things such as your height, age, current body weight as well as activity level. This will allow us the ability to get an extremely accurate, and custom breakdown of your specific Protein, Carbs, and Fats.

Having these numbers figured out will make your nutrition responsibilities incredibly easy. All you’ll simply have to do from here is just track the food you eat and ensure it all fits within your macros. After a while of tracking your Carbs, Fats and Proteins, you’ll be able to do this whole process every day without having to track a single macro. The experience of tracking everyday will educate on the exact macros that are in the food you eat on a daily basis. This is awesome, because we want to make this as seamless of a process as possible. This way, we’ll be able to stay consistent with the process, without it being too much of a dreaded chore every day.

The process of calculating your macros is an incredibly easy process and won’t take you longer than 5 minutes at home. Bust out your pen, calculator and piece of paper and you’ll have your macros calculated in no-time!
