My best suggestion would be just to track your nutrition and fitness consistently for one week. It might be a bit of a pain in the butt, but then you'll really know what your differential is.

I actually do agree with you. When i first started on this site i was working ALOT and constantly active. The more active you are the more "fuel' your going to need. Now i am no dietitian or anything but you should know your body better than anyone. If you feel that you require more then that's what you need to be doing. Some peoples metabolism is more rapid than others and vs versa.

Disclaimer, I do not log my food or working out on here regularly. I prefer a paper log. So I am not sure if that will effect what I am about to say.

It seems to me that the calorie intake they suggest on here is just way too low. For me they suggest 1200.

When I calculate my BMR it is 1607.55
Using the Harris Benedict Equation (moderately active)
1607.55 * 1.55 = 2491.7

So if I burn about 2491 calories per day and I am only eating 1200, that is a big risk of going into starvation mode or just feeling plain bad.

Now, the most a person wants to go in calorie deficit is 1000, but some even argue that is too high.

Any thoughts?
