      So i am creating a diet for my brother. He is 100% sedentary... practically comatose... never lifted a weight in his life.. sits on the computer all day. He claims he wants me to start cooking his meals for him so he can start losing weight without exercising. Only prob is after reading the stickies it says dont use the non BF% calcs b/c of inaccuracies for significantly over weight people which my brother is(he refuses to get his BF% checked). Just curious what would be the proper macros for a non lifter/non trainer (not even cardio)... How much P/F per pound (he refuses to go to gym or train)

      His stats

      Height: 6'1
      Weight: 270lbs


      Repps for helps.

      Use Mifflin St Jeor method.

      Also, tell him to get off his lazy @ss if he wants to lose weight. If he refuses, screw him.

      Well he's not lifting, and obviously doesn't care about muscle mass, so just stick to the RDA.

      Using a calc for RDA online it suggested him eating 2800 cals a day for a 1lb/week loss....that seems crazy high

      It's tough to get someone motivated sometimes. My brother is about 5'10" 220-230lbs and I've been trying to get him to go on a diet too. He's got a baby coming in a a few weeks too. Best thing you can do is give him all the options about healthy living but you can't force anyone to do something they don't want to do. Just cutting out soda/sugary drinks will probably save him 1lb/week

      I wish you the best, but can't imagine how anybody would expect him to actually follow a diet you provide.
