I’m a bit confused about how to go about calculating my daily caloric intake. I’ve been following T-Dawg 2.0 for 12 weeks now and according to this diet my daily caloric intake should be:
D.C.I = (Body weight * 15) - 500
so for me my D.C.I = 1615 cals
But last week for me had to be the hardest because I was always getting hunger pains which I tried to counter by drinking 500mls of water every 1.5hrs cause I thought maybe my body was getting dehydrated but it didnt work.
So then I decided that maybe T-dawg 2 has taken me as far as it can (despite still losing 1-2lbs every week and my strength being constant) so I started to look at the Don’t Diet plan and followed the algorithm to determine D.C.I which for me is
D.C.I = 3000cals.
This is what is confusing me. Why does T-Dawg say to have 1615cals a day and Don’t Diet is saying to have almost double that.
So here are my questions:
If I swich diets will I keep losing weight? and why?
If the answer to the above question is “no” then can you PLEASE tell me how to stop these hunger pains.
my p/f/c is:
p = 201
f = 67
c = 58
Thanks for reading/helping.
