    This post made me finally wake up to how simple losing fat should be. I've struggled all my life with it. Now I feel I'm on the right path. Just need to get my workouts in check. I've been sticking to my calculations for a week and feel the difference. Protein goal is pretty hard to hit, mind.

    In the past I'd do stupid stuff like count calories but wouldn't count drinking beer. Or eat calories back I'd 'gained' after exercise. Can't cheat the calories. Just can't.

    Is there a reason you can't just take multi-vitamins for your micros?

    This seems rather simple. I almost feel like it is too simple. Am I missing something?

    Whole foods offer a lot more than just vitamins and minerals. Phytonutrients for example.

    Then there's the fact that components of multivitamins are often of lower quality with poorer absorption. For example magnesium is often magnesium oxide, the cheapest form.

    Then there's the fact that science shows very strong health benefits for fruit and vegetable intake, while vitamin supplements are neutral at best.

    I made it simple on purpose. I don't think anything important is missing but let me know if you find something.

    How precise is this TDEE calculator in the OP?


    I'm 6'2 and ~170lbs and got 2593 cals for maintenance.



    Doesn't that seem low?

    It's a rough estimate. Try it out and the scale will tell you if it's right.
