i have already ate nearlly 800 cals today.... i plan on deadlifting today.... should i am for the 2500 even on training dasy?
2500 is just a number from personal experience. It's generally the spot I recommend for Average Joes to start at. Nothing overly scientific about it.

I've counted calories for 25 years and was able to lose weight and retain strength around 2500 a day (up until age 40). I lost weight too rapidly at 2100-2200. Mileage varies of course, but at your age of 24, going lower than 2500 per day probably isn't needed, even with sitting all day.

How many days per week are you training right now?
