16-23 calories per pound of body weight per day1 hr daily training at 70% VO2 max: 2.5 -3 grams carbohydrate (CHO) per pound of bodyweight per day, 2 hours daily training at 70% VO2 max or above: 3.5 -4.5 grams CHO perpound body weight per day. How many calories and how much carbohydrate should a 132 pound female triathlete who trains 1 hour daily at 70% VO2 max consume?Step 1: Determine the estimated calorie intake by multiplying 20 calories per pound by132 pounds. Using the middle range of the estimate, this athlete needs approximately2,520 daily calories. 20 cal X 132 pounds = 2,640 cal/dayStep 2: Determine the estimated carbohydrate (CHO) intake by multiplying 3.5 grams ofCHO by 132 pds. Using the lower end of the estimate, this athlete needs approx. 360grams of CHO daily. 3 g. CHO X 132 pounds = 396 g CHO/dayDetermination: A 132-pound female distance swimmer who trains 1 hour daily at 70%VO2 max should consume at least 2,640 calories and 396 g carbohydrate daily.
