    Quick way to calculate your macros

    If anyone is interested, I have a fairly slick Macro Calculator. It's a self calculating spreadsheet. With almost a thousand food items, all you have to do is input in the green shaded areas, and output is yellow shaded areas. Includes Protein/Carbs/Fat/Saturated Fat/Cholestoral/Total Grams/Total Calories. It also expresses in caloric percentages.

    Anyone with interest, PM me and it's yours.

    Cheers!

    Protein/Carbs/Fat - Calories

    A real rough guideline for eating correctly within your macros would be a 40/40/20 % split. Expressed as a percentage of total calories eaten.

    I'm old school mate and live in a world where spreadsheets reign supreme....
