I'd start there. Their activity multipliers are crap, so I'd take the BMR and add about 500 calories to it and see how that works for a few weeks.

Be ware, not following a good program is a good way to spin you wheels and not get anywhere. I'd recommend following 70sbig to a tee.

Also what is your immediate goal? If it's to get strong and fast using a program like 70sbig you need to eat to support the training but you might add a few pounds of "bulk" on.


Interesting - Hopefully I don't sound ignorant for wanting to mix, my rational was I really love weight lifting, so 70s big was appealing - but I enjoy the distinct challange of the CF workouts, so I had hoped to combine - if this is a bad idea thank you for letting me know - would you advise dropping the 70s big ( the strength/conditioning program- which I've omitted cleans from till I'm safe to do them) and just working on overall fitness in CF workouts?

& Andrew, thank you that was a very well thought out comment and I really appreciate it - I'm glad your wife is happy!
