Question about my macros that are being auto-set
I want my macros to be as follows:
133 g fats
20 g net carbs
104 g protein (calculated by using .8 grams of protein per lb of lean body mass)
(This is strict keto)
To set this up, I go into the Macronutrient target area of Cronometer and choose "High Fat / Ketogenic" The 'rigorous' option seems to match what I'm going for ( .8 grams of protein per lb of lean body mass, and no more than 20 grams of carbs per day).
My activity level is set to 'sedentary' (desk job). I have the "net carbs" option selected.
So here's the problem- I close the macronutrient target area, and Chronometer thinks my macros should be as follows:
(when choosing the keto/rigorous option, it doesn't allow me to modify these manually at all):
46grams of protein (only about half of what my goal is)
20 grams of net carbs
148 g of fat
WHY is this happening? Why is it setting my protein goal so low?
