I have spent a long time bulking and put on a "little" extra weight and need to cut. I need to know an approximate number of calories per day for a cutting plan. I have access to underwater weighing so i know that my Fat Free Mass is 190 with a total wieght of 250 lb. I want to get down to about 215. My chief concern if maintaining muscle I really don't care if the weight loss is slow as long as I'm maintaining or slightly gaining muscle. My current idea is to eat about 3200 calories a day broken up to 6-7 small meals with a ratio of 65% carbs 20 % protein and 15% Fat. I will also stay on creatine even though i don't know if that matters. HST 3 day a week About 500 calories worth of cardio 3-4 times per week Otherwise I have a moderate level of actvity. Walk to work and on my feet at work. Any advice or imput would be greatly appreciated, and just let me know if i should provide any other details.
