    Hi Joe and Bryce, I’m a long time fan, recent subscriber. I love the workouts and want to dive into Come Here Cannonballs soon!

    Right now I have a lot of weight to lose right now as my midsection looks like a Ninja Turtle head (proportionate chest, but belly with REALLY big love handles). I’m using the diet planner to generate macros to cut with, but even with the very active setting and high fat/low carb setting, it seems like it’s giving me a lot of carbs and fat! Am I doing something wrong?

    Macros are for a 36 y/o male standing 6’3, 280 lbs, engaging in very active activity (every other day lift/stairmaster/lift/stairmaster) with a high fat/low carb and cut settings: 280 p, 207 c, 184 f.

    I mean, if that’s okay to eat, it’s not exactly twisting my arm for me to fit that in, I just want to make sure I have my numbers right or see if I need to cut back on something.

    Thanks!

    John

    Thank you Bryce! In the meantime, would something like 220 p, 190 c, 66 f be best for my goals? Maybe 88 f at the absolute most?

    Diet planner is wrong.

    For me it shows a total amount of 1775 cal. : 175 P 111 C and 99F – Total amount of Protein, Carbs and Fats are 2031 calories not 1775 !

    Or am I wrong?
