    Rough guess, I'd say you should be eating abour 1800 Cals. It depends on other factors. How tall are you? How much muscle do you have? 160lbs is different from person to person.
    When in doubt......lift more!!

    Thank you BoyscouT.
    How many calories do I need? Click here to find out, courtesy of forum member Short One
    For cutting, I suggest -200 cals. For bulking, I suggest +200 cals.
    At least 1.5g of protein per lb of bodyweight.
    At least 20% of your calories should come from healthy fats.
    Carbs are up to you, I recommend keeping starchy carbs @ breakfast, PreWorkout, and Post-Post Workout.
    I recommend P+C+F in every meal except preWO (P+C), immediate post workout (P+C), and bedtime (P+F).
    Drink at least 1 gallon of pure water a day.

    u can easily cut 5-10lbs in 2 months..having a proper diet alone witha calorie deficit will cut fat without u having to do anything.

    Wrong ^^^^. One is supposed to subtract the calories from BMR+Activity calories which is called Maintanence calories for the day.

    Subtracting 500 calories from one's BMR alone will result is one eating in a severe calorie deficit.
