View Full Version : Daily Maintenance Calorie Conundrum...Need Scientific Answer

10-05-2011, 10:24 AM
This question came to me as I was trying to use one of the many Daily Caloric Intake calculators provided online, when the quistionairre prompted me to ask my exercise level. 3 to 4 days moderate, 3 to 4 days intense, sedentary, etc….

My question is, if I spend say 3 days a week completely sedentary and 4 days burning 3000+ calories a day what exercise level category would I fall under? Do the high energy-consumption days carry over to the lazy days in terms of caloric needs?

Moreover, how do your maintenance calories per day actually maintain their level if you spend some days totally active and other total inactive?
