They seem to vary a bit. Just wondering what you guys use and have found to be accurate.

I like FatSecret(.)Com the reason I like it is because I weigh everything in Grams and just enter the weight I'm eating. I don't have to eat a full serving of the food, or calculate how much of a full serving I'm eating.Pain is temporary, Pride is forever ||| http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=137518363

I'm hoping to post some new pics after this week so I can get my bodyfat estimated so you can calculate my macros for me in your thread.
Looking at my stats, it just seems odd that 1,800 calories per day didn't yield any weight loss for 2 weeks now. Going down to 1,600 for this week as well as lifting like a beast.

And do these macros look correct everyone?
287g scrambled egg = 500 cals / 35g protein
2 x slices toast = 200 cals / 7g protein
260g chicken breast = 500 cals / 75g protein
350g mixed salad = 50 cals
45g salad cream = 150 cals
EDIT: They're also rounded up. Like the chicken was actually 489 cals.

They all use the same formulae, I don't see how you're getting different figures from different sites. My guess is you're confusing bmr with tdee.
You could just eat 2000 calories a day and cruise on that til you hit about 175 before you even thought about changing it.Don't Drink, Don't Smoke, Watdo you do?

I'm down to 1,600 now anyway. If my strength suffers and/or I lose 3 lb by next Monday, I'll notch it back up to 1,800.
Also, it wasn't the sites giving me different information, it's that my carton of eggs said 66 cal per egg, so 5 should be 330, yet the weight of the eggs mixed before going into the pan was 287g which amounts to 487 cals (rounded up to 500 cals) on those calorie count sites. So as you can see, there's a bit of a contrast between the two.
