    When calculating macros and using food labels, should one focus more on meeting specific goals for grams of carbs, protein, and fat. And then calculate calories using the 1 g of protein/carb equals 4 cal and 1g of fat equals 9cals. Or should you also take into account the calories on food labels to determine how many calories you are actually getting a day? Hopefully the question makes sense.

    Thank you for the response! I’ve focused more on ensuring amount of protein carbs and fats are being met. But whenever I calculate calories just out of curiosity it confuses me a bit and makes me question if I’m calculating my macros correctly. Take for example the brand of oatmeal I have it says 1 serving size has 27g of carbs with 150cal. And when I multiply the 27g by 4 thats 108cal. Am I doing something incorrectly or something I’m not considering?
