Beginner (restarting) here.
Between the articles on food logs and diets, I have a pretty good idea on how to set up and track my food. I also have a workout routine and cardio plan set. My only question (for now) is how to decide how many calories I want to hit each day.
I am right now at about 300 lbs. I am not actually in “oh-my-god-obese” land, I have some decent muscle, I carry my size well and ppl usually guess my weight at about 250 or less, but I am of course pretty badly overweight.
My question is: Should I really set my calories at 300 x 15 = 4500 calories a day? That seems like an insane amount of food when I try to project my diet from the foods in the '7 Habits…" Whole foods, fruits, Grow, Surge, etc… only goes so far.
Anyway–any thoughts? Is the “weight times 15” still the best place to start?
