| | Calorie needs while dieting
I am 185lb and I am going to guess 12% body fat. I want to drop some weight slowly. Right now I net 2100 calories a day. It is really around 2400 calories without taking into consideration my workouts.
I am keeping meticulos record of my calorie intake and breakdown. I keep my protien to a minimum of 215 grams to a high of 250 grams.
My carbs range from 188 grams to 251 grams.
My fats range from 49 grams to 88 grams. 80% of my fats are clean planned sources as from avocados.
My question is my calorie count to high if my goal is to lose 1/2 pound a week without losing to much if any muscle. Any suggestions or thoughts?
