I need some help from you guys.
I’m starting the AD but i’m having a bit of trouble believing how much calories i need to eat
I’m 5’9/10 and 244lb or 179cm and 111kg.
Kinda fatty, yes
But should i start the AD with like 18xmy weight in lb’s ?!
That’s like 4392calories :o
Can you guys give me a help ? On the other hand the Cunningham (or whatever it’s called :D) formula said something on the rounds of 3750 so i was thinking of starting the AD on 3600cals.
What do you guys think ?[/quote]
IME, those calculators are never accurate… i assume you’re trying to lose fat with the AD?
if so, i would just start by keeping your cals the same for now and switch to the AD style of eating for a couple weeks and see if its for you or not (i.e. you dont crash without carbs)
how many cals are you eating now? are you bulking still? are you transitioning into fat loss? the more info you give the better…[/quote]
Thanks for the reply!
To be honest i haven’t dieted for a long time so i haven’t been controlling how much i eat lately.
I want to lose fat, shred everything i gained back after 2 years of doing nothing
The calculators as i said point to 3700cals but i’m afraid that will be too much and i start gaining fat/weight fast…
Maybe i should start around 3300cal ? What do you think ?
if i were in your position i would start at 3250 cals per day, and have 1 carb up day per week. you can toy with the set up to see how your body reacts obviously…
i assume you are lifting HEAVY 4 or 5 times a week now?[/quote]
More like 3 times with cardio (low intensity, climbing)…
So should i do the 3250 or lower even ?
well i would highly recommend bumping that up to 4 at least but 3x a week works for some…
im gonna PM you bc i dont want to clog the thread up…
