What is the Carnivore Diet Macro Calculator?

The Carnivore Diet Macro Calculator is designed to simplify your carnivore diet experience by offering personalized dietary recommendations. However, it's essential to understand its unique approach and the crucial role of professional guidance.

Carnivore Diet Macro Calculator uses the Katch-McArdle Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) Calculator as a foundation for determining your daily calorie requirements. This BMR calculation forms the foundation of your dietary plan, representing the calories your body requires for fundamental functions while at rest.

Once your BMR is established, the calculator suggests your optimal daily protein intake, carefully tailored to your lean body mass. Protein is a cornerstone of the carnivore diet, and our calculator ensures you receive the right amount to support muscle maintenance and growth.

To help you meet your calorie target, it offers guidance on the amount of fat grams required to reach your calorie target, enabling a perfect balance between protein and fat. This personalized approach ensures alignment with carnivore diet principles and supports your weight loss goals, all while optimizing your overall health.

The Carnivore Diet Macro Calculator is a valuable tool, but consulting with doctors and nutritionists is essential for personalized guidance and to ensure your health aligns with your dietary choices. Their expertise complements the calculator, helping you make informed decisions for your well-being.

Katch-McArdle Equation

The Katch-McArdle equation is a formula used to estimate an individual's Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), which represents the number of calories your body needs at rest to maintain basic bodily functions such as breathing, circulation, and cell production. It takes into account lean body mass (LBM), which is a more accurate measure of metabolic rate than just body weight.

  • BMR (Katch-McArdle) = 370 + (21.6 * LBM in kg)

To determine your total daily calorie needs, you can then multiply your BMR by an activity factor that represents your daily activity level:

  • Sedentary (little or no exercise): BMR * 1.2
  • Lightly active (light exercise or sports 1-3 days a week): BMR * 1.375
  • Moderately active (moderate exercise or sports 3-5 days a week): BMR * 1.55
  • Very active (hard exercise or sports 6-7 days a week): BMR * 1.725
  • Super active (very hard exercise, physical job, or training twice a day): BMR * 1.9

Keep in mind that these are just estimates, and individual variations can exist. To achieve specific fitness or weight goals, you may need to adjust your calorie intake accordingly and monitor your progress. It's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian for personalized guidance on nutrition and calorie requirements.
