Re: Recommened Calorie Intake

The macro guidelines provided by CF are quite good in my book. That's pretty much what I have always recommended. I think you might be confusing the total cals recommendation. For total cals I have created basic guidelines, but I think one of the best ways to do it is get a calorie counting app on your phone and then track your normal eating habits for a week. Find your average daily intake for the week and make that your baseline intake. You then make 200 cal adjustments depending on your goal (gain or lose) and track for two weeks. If you are moving in the right direction stay at that level until you no longer are and then adjust again. If you are not moving, then adjust again, but give yourself 2 weeks to determine if you are moving or not.
