    Calculating Daily Caloric Intake & Bodybuilding


    I was wondering how you guys calculate your daily caloric requirements. I am interested in fine tuning my diet quite a bit, and wondering what methods YOU use to figure out your total caloric intake for the day.

    be sure to post your weight and any other INPUT variable in your calculation.


    **obviously daily changes in activity will put us over or under "one set caloric intake number" but without a basis of consistency, significant process seems impossible. Especially when trying to break that 10% bf mark...

    gotcha, from there what is your range of multipliers (proven accurate from experience) for activity level?

    This assumes that everyone has the same BMR.

    Everyone has a different BMR.

    I used this one and I find it pretty accurate. i will put it to the test in full this coming week with my re-adjusted caloric intake.
