    :ugh: that has me at about 2750 calories to cut a little bit, i would keel over and die. seems pretty low to me, but it doesn't really consider activity level outside of muscularity.

    It was pretty accurate for me. It said I needed around 3000 for maintenance which is a little high actually.

    2516 will take me to 190. I'm around 2100 for maintaining 180 and seems right.

    I maintain at 2100 and upped it to about 2300. Seeing little fat now so it's working.

    2446 calories for me to put on 10 lbs.
    That's just slightly below maintenance for me.

    calculators of this type are just ballpark. Everyone's metabolism/activity level is different which are the two main factors in achieving an energy equilibrium/surplus/ or deficit so obviously it will be dead-on for some and completely inaccurate for others...
