Calculating Daily Caloric Intake & Bodybuilding

  1. 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?

  4. Do a google search. I know Bodybulding.com has a few articles that have the calculator in them. Great tool to get an idea as to where you need to be caloric intake wise...

    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.
