How Our Nutrition Calculator Works

Our Divided Labs Nutrition Calculator is designed to provide you with personalized nutrition targets, supporting your specific fitness goals. Here’s how it works:

  1. Data Input: You start by entering key information - your age, gender, height, weight, and optionally, your body fat percentage. This data forms the basis for our calculations.

  2. Activity Level Assessment: We take into account your daily activity level, ranging from sedentary to extra active. This helps in accurately determining your Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE).

  3. Goal Selection: You can choose from three distinct fitness goals:

    • Muscle Gain: For those looking to build muscle mass, we offer an option of a 300 calorie surplus.
    • Maintain/Recomposition: Ideal if you're looking to maintain your current weight while improving body composition.
    • Weight Loss: For weight loss, you can opt for a .8% per week reduction in body weight.
  4. Scientific Formulas:

    • Mifflin-St Jeor Equation: This is our primary formula to estimate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and is widely recognized for its accuracy.
    • Katch-McArdle Formula: If you input your body fat percentage, we switch to this formula for a more tailored calculation based on lean body mass.
  5. Macronutrient Breakdown: Based on your TDEE, selected goal and nutrition focus, the calculator provides a breakdown of your daily macronutrient intake (carbohydrates, proteins, and fats), adhering to the Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Ranges (AMDR) to ensure a balanced diet.
