Well, it "kinda" works, but not for "weight loss"!!!
When I use their formula at my current weight it comes out around 2000 calories a day, or a bit more. Which - is close enough to what I expect my maintenance calories to be, if i decided to stick at this weight. Maybe a little high, but "a general idea."
When i use that same formula at my starting weight - it gives me a daily calorie intake of well over 3000 calories. Which - was probably about what I was eating.... and I was maintaining my weight of 245# while doing so.
The misleading part of the article is in suggesting it's a guide for "weight LOSS" because - nope, It's giving a (generous in my opinion) daily intake for MAINTENANCE.
Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE**
Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)
