    Just used the forumlas here:
    http://www.johnberardi.com/articles/nutrition/masseating_1.htm

    To calculate my calories per day. I used a couple internet body fat caluclators and they guessed I was around 8-9 percent. I went with 8 since I couldn't find fat on my ass if I tried.

    Long story short, that link is fucking awesome and I'm supposed to be eating at least 3,340 calories per day.

    YIKES!!!

    of for sure, I've been trying to find some sort of estimation because the way I eat now, I've been training for about 2 months and haven't gained a single pound

    it sucks cause I have a feeling 3,340 might not even be enough. That number is with zero cardio.
