Just started using the MFP macro calculator.
I only care about total calories for the day - and maintaining 40% protein, 30% fat, 30% protein (for muscle gain).
The problem is, MFP takes calories from a variety of sources - fiber, sugar, saturated fat and so on.
And it seems virtually impossible to get the right balance - total calories while maintaining the % of each macro you want.
No matter how I swing it, there ends up being too many carbs, not enough fat, or too much protein, not enough carbs and so on. And don't get me started on the vitamins.
It's sort of like a puzzle that you just can't beat lol. It is quite frustrating though.
Can anyone relate? Anyone have any advice? Is there any way to customize the tool so it only takes into consideration the macros I actually care about?
