I'm 6'2 and 220 - 31 years old. Already in pretty good shape (in the 4-pk range). I have been experimenting with my diet forever and even gone so far as to keep a log breaking it down by every single cal and gram of pro/carb/fat for the last month. Extremely clean diet, including all the vits, good fats, etc.
I am at a desk 5 days a week (pretty low cal burning stuff), hit the weights hard three times a week for about 45 mins - hour. Stationary bike 2-3 times on off days for 40 minutes in the fat burning heart rate range.
1 other thing. I use 4 tabs of Xenadrine NRG (2 - twice a day) every week day to keep myself humming. I really like this stuff by the way, but I am pretty sensitive to stimulants so it is just right for me.
Without telling you how many calories I am currently using as a benchmark (since I don't want to bias the answers), how many calories do you think someone my size should be eating to be in a maintain/lose a pound or two phase? My goal weight is 215.
I think I am undereating and it is and putting my body into survival mode (slow bmr).
Let me know.
