I looked up an old T-Nation article called ‘Constriction Contradiction’ to get my approximate calorie expenditure per day.
The number was ~2,600. That was with ‘light activity’ - because my activity varies quite a bit from day to day. With ‘medium activity’, the number jumps to 3,150. Weightlifting supposedly adds a 250 calorie burn.
I’m 33 and have never done calorie restriction before. Can someone point me to what would be a good calorie total for cutting up without tanking my metabolism?
