Caloric Intake Formula


#1

Hi, what formula do you recommend when trying to find your maintance caloric intake? How about the Harris Benedict equation? Have you found one more accurate? Thanks


#2

Bottom line is, it doesn't really matter. It's not going to fit you exactly anyways. Pick a formula, use that as a starting point, and adjust your intake at regular intervals.


#3

try doing 2 or 3 of them are find the range they give, or average the 3 of them out. In any event you will have to modify the cals to your body after a few trial and error weeks.
