so the 1 rule is just 1800 calories a day?
It is for me, because that's right around where I steadily lose fat. That's my goal right now.
You need to calculate what's right for you. Are you cutting? Bulking? Just trying to maintain?
I like this because it practically works the same as a traditional bbing diet, you end up getting more nutrition and better variety, and you end up enjoying yourself like you should.
