I here from a lot of a lot of people on a daily basis that say that they saw the calculator and started using it 3-4 weeks before they bought Met Flex for Fat Loss. For a lot of people this is a pretty major change to their eating habits and for the small price we charge you actually get to talk to the people that create all of this content. Trust me, you are much better off in the support group (Science Lab) and using the Seminars (free with purchase of the book) than trying to figure all of this out on your own.

First let me say that for many of you looking at something like this for the first time you might think “but I don’t want to count calories”. I don’t want you to either, I refer to this calculator as “The Wake Up Call” for fat loss because super clean diets and Crossfit don’t mix well. Run the calculator and ask yourself honestly if you are eating that much because if you aren’t it’s holding you back from your goals.
Also before you use this calculator take a look at this post that describes what the various parts of the calculator is doing and why. TDEE Calculator Explained.
Let me also add a note, many people adjust the carbs lower and end up getting a higher fat number and try this with high fat using a lot of oils to get there. This is a mistake. Try solving for “carbs” using the paramaters below (also note that adjusting protein higher is typically favorable and will keep your carbs at a reasonable level, this is a guide not a rule):
Women 75g-100g (I would probably default to 100g in most instances)
Men 125g-150g (I would default to the lower number in most instances)
The simple fact is that if you want to get your metabolism kick started carbs and protein are better for doing that but you want to try and play with things a bit, you are in charge not a calculator on the internet. The goal is adequate protein and moderate carbs.
