I have read anything from 16X your body weight to 18 X's your body weight. I just don't believe this is true. The reasons behind why I feel this way is Some have differance activity throughout the day. Some may have labor type jobs(Shoveling rock,and others sitting at a desk).
How do you find your own personal mainenance calories,without taking 2-3 weeks to do it ?
I'm 5'10" 153 pounds and have tried cutting 300-500 calories off a day , of what I thought was my mainanance calories,but I am finding I am getting no fat loss or any weight loss for that matter in a period of over 2 months.
I had been eating between 1800-1900 calories a day 5 days a week(7-8 meals) and give myself 2 days a week of 2500 calories(7-8 meals). Cardio and weights are 6 days a week.
I will save your the time(I AM NOT INTERESTED IN BULKING AT THE MOMENT)
