jbbarea Posted March 25, 2021 Report Share Posted March 25, 2021 Hello everyone! I joined this forum today and am very excited to find a group of folks working on something that I have been doing on my own with no direction. Read a few articles about calorie restriction and started CR about 2 months ago. I started at 5'8, 200 pounds and am currently at 186. Checked BMR and am around 21% which is pretty good for my age. Here is my quesion: I started the first month at 1300 calories per day which was pretty low, but actually managable even though I do 30 minutes of varied workouts a day. Found that increasing to 1500 (max) worked better and still losing weight about 1 pound or more per week. Can I maintain at 1500? I've done it in the past for as long as a year or two (when I was younger). Anyone else of my size and age have similar experiences? I'm trying to nail down my maintenance calories for the long term. Thank you! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
