When reverse dieting, the idea it to return to your new maintenance calories. Obviously, maintenance calories when you began the cut are different than maintenance calories currently. Sometimes it takes awhilel to figure out your new maintenance. However, going off the 3500 calories per pound frame of mind, could I somewhat accurately guess my maintenance calories based on the weight loss over the last month, given I’ve been logging all macronutrients?
For simple math, if I’m averaging 2000 calories a day, that’s 14,000 calories per week. If I’ve been losing 1.5 lbs per week, take 1.5 x 3500 = 5250. Let’s say all things equal in training, would around 19,000 calories be maintenance?
