Kcals & Macros

Fuelling Excellence: Dive into Kcal & Macros

What information is Kcals & Macros giving me?

Kcals & Macros provides you with your daily calorie, carbohydrate, protein and fat targets.

Your daily personalised Kcal & Macro targets can vary day to day depending on the following:

  • Workout type, intensity and duration
  • Competition schedule
  • Goal (Lose, Maintain, Gain)
  • Individual biometrics and lifestyle patterns

Each days targets also take into account yesterday’s workouts and consider if any additional energy may be required to support recovery, as well as tomorrow’s activity and consider if any additional energy may be required to fuel. As a result, adding workouts 48hrs ahead of time is recommended where possible to ensure your calorie and macronutrient targets are optimised to help you perform, adapt and recover.

How are my Kcals & Macros calculated?

Your daily Kcal & Macro targets are calculated using evidenced based formulas from the latest scientific research.

These formulas are calculating:

  • Resting energy expenditure
  • Sleeping energy expenditure
  • Exercise energy expenditure
  • Excess post exercise oxygen consumption
  • Non-exercise activity thermogenesis
  • Dietary induced thermogenesis

Targets are further personalised to consider factors such as your goals and workout schedule.

Can I manually adjust Kcal & Macro targets?

Throughout 2024 a Pro and Premium version of Hexis will be made available that will enable you to manually adjust Kcal & Macro targets.
