    pro = 4cals/gram
    carb = 4casl/gram
    fat = 9cals/gram

    so if you are doing 200g pro (40%) cals = 800
    200g carb (40%) = cals 800
    44gfats (20%) = cals 400
    total cals = 2000

    Personally i work out 1g/lb pro + 20-25%fats and the rest carbs. I find this method works for me.
