I recently had an opportunity to have a resting metabolic test done. I didnt get any sort of guidance with the results. Im wondering how I can use the results to fine tune my daily nutrition plan without having to go to a nutrionist.
My REE was about 1800. The kfat was about 80%, the kcho was about 20%.
Do I take the REE and add my excercise calories to get a maintenance calorie intake? For example, If I burn 600 on a bike workout, then Id aim for 2400 for the day?
Then for weight loss with a goal of leaning out, create a deficit without going below the REE?
And is there anything to take away from the 80/20 fat/cho ratio in terms of adjusting my macros?
Yes, you are thinking about it correctly except you prob need to add in 200-300 cal/day for just regular walking around, daily chores, etc. JOOC, was your test the kind where you sit quietly with clamp on your nose and breath in and out through your mouth for 10 minutes??? Also, how much do you weigh???
