    Is this really how much I should be eating?

    Not gonna bore you with my backstory, pretty much gained all my weight back that I lost over last 2 years due to pretty bad injuries and other personal issues in my life (I lost 50kg).

    Anyways, have been dieting the last 3 weeks on 2400 calories a day losing 1.5kg a week on average, doing 30 mins bike 4 times a week until my gym opened back up this week. (Closed just before xmas)

    I am going from 2400 cals a day, doing exercise 4 times a week outside of that completely sedentary.

    Going back to work being a labourer physical job and gym 5-6 days a week.

    Current weight is 125kg, 28 yr old male 173cm

    Using the pinned post calculator https://www.freedieting.com/calorie-calculator it says I should be eating 3300 calories for fat loss with daily exercise and physical job, should I really be eating that much? I know it's best to diet on as high as possible calories in the long term.

    No, those calculators make big assumptions. Real data is always preferable. If you are losing at a satisfactory rate on 2400, that is a sensible number so stick with it

    Weight loss is always faster at the start so you might not sustain 1.5kg if you didn't change anything. What was it for the most recent week? If more than 1kg then maybe you could bump your intake up to 2600 or so.

    I've almost lost 2kg this week so far but I start back at work and gym tomorrow so might up my calories to 2600 or 2700 and see how I go next week or two.

    If I converted that correctly then you would be 5'6 and 275 Pounds

    ^Now if that's true then you really don't need to worry about losing weight too fast unless you're built like Maurice Jones-Drew
