    Maintenance Calories


    Isn't there a number you can multipy your bodyweight by to find out how many calories you need to maintain your bodyweight? I know it is different because of metabolism and all that but i just want a general number to start off with. Thanks.

    That works for everyone regardless of how fast your metabolism is? I thought it was different for everyone?

    It takes into consideration your thermic food effect, and yes it is different for everyone. Theres not 1 single number accurate enough to multiply your weight by to get your maintainence calories. Some people use 15, but like you said, its different for everyone so 15 isnt an ideal number for everyone.

    Go read the thread man, I explain it all there, but in short its the thermic effect food has on your body (spices, etc. anything to speed up your metabolism)

    Actually 5'4. 162.56 divided by 2.54 = 64 right? And 60 inches is 5 feet right? Plus the 4 inches left over = 5 feet, 4 inches.
