In general since you're not a bodybuilder and not looking to micromanage everything, I might suggest starting around 2500 per day. That might be a bit high, but I would rather see you start higher and back off if needed. Heck, you might have an uber metabolism and need more. But that's unlikely.

I would try 2500 for a few weeks. The first week you will drop extra water weight as your body relaxes a bit from digestion demands and carb overkill. After week 1 if you are losing more than 2 pounds a week I would add 200-300 calories per day. Losing weight too quickly zaps muscle and strength.

If you're not losing weight then I would drop 200-300 calories per day.
i am 24... did you come up with the 2500 based of a certain calculation?

your right about not micromanaging... would hurt my goals rather than help.... i justdont wanna go over 240 right now with out getting stronger first... thanx for the input

i have already ate nearlly 800 cals today.... i plan on deadlifting today.... should i am for the 2500 even on training dasy?
