I weight 200 pounds, I am 5 foot 9, I am trying to cut (lose weight) while adding muscle. Since I just started lifting weights after 10 years I was told this is the best time to try and do both. I have been told different things when it comes to how many calories I need to take in. I have heard anywhere from 1800 - 2500. How do I know what one to listen to?
bodyfat = I would say around 22%
activity = other then lifting weights/cardio I am sitting or sleeping
