Ok, first let me start off by saying this is my very first post so try to be understanding of any ignorance I have in regards to other threads that are similar or forum "usage". I have acquired quite a good bit of information and tips from this site within the past few months but I decided I'd like to get some opinions regarding my own personal training/nutrition. I started out about 6 months ago lifting regularly (4-5 times per week, cardio 2-3 times) and I will say I have seen some nice results. I went from around 148 to my current weight of 165 without putting on to much fat. My main question/ issue I have currently is calculating my maintainence requirements nutriton wise so I can move forward and add calories accordingly. Every site/ formula I use tends to give me very different answers from 2200 calories all the way up to 2850 for maintanence. I know everyone is different and most cases its trial and error to see where you fit in, but on the flip side I dont want to continue to eat 3200-3300 calories/day and gain excess fat because of too much of a caloric surplus. and yes, before anyone posts it, I have seen the main thread of calulating calories and macronutrients and I used the formulas but Im still stuc on where i should be. My current job as a health insurance/life insurance rep is not very active (desk job) yet i do excersise 5 times a week with heavy lifting for an hour or so. My daily nutrition is spot on in my opinion as far as healthy calorie dense foods (chicken, eggs, milk, almond butter, whole grain bread, bananas, brocoli, oatmeal, ect.)...My goal weight is 185, and id estimate im between 10-13 percent bodyfat currently. Any help would be appreciated and sorry for the long post.
