I’ve been monitoring my calories/macros very closely lately trying to get a better idea of how my body is reacting from what I’ve been putting into it. I’m not very big by any means, about 170lbs kinda soft. 170 x 13 as a maintenance multiplier = 2210 kcal, which isn’t a whole lot of food.
From reading some of the posts/articles, Dr. Clay Hyght’s interview:
and one from caveman that I pulled from this thread:
Both of these guys are pretty large, lean, and muscular, but don’t require a whole lot of food for maintenance. Dr. Clay’s was like 2200-2400 kcal/day and caveman’s was like bwx13 which I had to be 2800 kcal. Still not a lot of food. Compared to somebody like Berardi who says he needs 4500 kcal a day, which is a lot of food.
Understanding that people have different metabolisms, training routines, daily activity levels, etc., I was wondering what people’s maintenance intake of kcal is. Maybe post sex/bodyweight/~lbm/height/work type (like office work, construction, etc)/kcal intake for maintenance. I just kinda want to see what the spread looks like.
