Hello from a new guy.
I have been going to the gym since about January and usually work out 3x a week for about an hour and I also take 3-4 hours of kung fu a week as well.
I currently weigh 258lbs and am 5’10.5" with a body fat% of 37.
My goal is to get in shape and try and stay strong and flexible to help be a good martial artist.
I have tried a few calculators to get how many calories I need, but they seem to get figures that differ a lot from one to another.
Is there a scientifically reliable way to get my caloric needs?
I want to get down to 12-15% body fat or lower, depending on how my build handles the weight.
