    How many calories do YOU consume while dieting?

    What do u want to do cut or bulk? im assuming u want to cut but could be wrong here is a link to the Harris-Bendict Formula one of our diet bros put it in an excel document so its simple to calculate what your mateinance number of kcals are http://www.geocities.com/arelliotness/harris-elliot.xls u have to create a calorie defecit from 300-500 kcals a day. Your going to have to eat clean so i would advise checking out the cutting sticky on top of the page and build a diet from that format, because if u eat sh*t food even if its within your kcal limit u still wont be doing jack to lose actual fat you will lose lean muscle mass.

    Bro, I'm glad you're trying to help and all but you CAN'T READ FOR SHIZZLE! LOL....
    The post asked "How many cals do you eat while dieting?" (hint hint)
    Inside the post I wrote that "I am dieting on 2000 cals".
    LOL...
    But thanks for the help with calculating the calories!
    Peace dog.

    I'd say that's a bit low, at least in the initial stages.

    I weigh 205lbs at 7%bf.
    2300K cals while cutting.

    I gradually (and I mean gradually) adjust my cals as my weight drops and re-arrange my macros depending on progress and time frame.

    swole's said this before, and it's a very important point (paraphrased):
    while calorie consumption and expenditure are essential in dieting, nutrient timing and eating in a timely, organized manner are JUST as important....
    only a lucky few can get away with eating their 2500 calories scattered throughout the day...the rest of us have to do it in 6-8 reasonable portions
