Any opinions on the variables he selects in calculating calories needed to maintain, and/or lose fat? Seems that any "fat calculator" will be hard pressed to quantify metabolic rates per individual.
So far, it seems to work, in the sense that, I'm now counting calories and protein grams for the first time ever. Calculating what I'm putting onto my plate, and recording it, rather than using the old, "I think this is roughly x calories/protein" approach, I think, is making most of the difference.
I'm 43, 200 lbs., 69" tall, and I'm shooting for a 25% calorie reduction. So, my macro intake, according to Scooby, should be 40/40/20 @ 6 meals per day. I selected 5-6 hours per week of strenuous exercise, and the final calculation results were as follows:
Basal Metabolic Rate: 1926
Daily calories to maintain weight (TDEE): 3323
Daily calories based on a reduction goal of 25% less calories (below maintenance) per day: 2492
