I have been eating for mass gain for a good 8 months now, and I am trying to figure out how much I should be eating for maintenance at my current weight.
I have done online calculators and gotten a range of 3500-4700 which very broad. I am 29. 6' 275-ish and about 22% bodyfat. Activity level is high as I train 4-5 days per week, and work 12 hour shifts in which I walk 2 miles on a slow day and am on my feet almost the entire night on a busy night.
I am currently eating 5000cal/day, and am thinking of dropping to 4000 as a starting point. My concern is strength as I am training for powerlifting. I'd like to halt the fat gain for now if I can and then start cutting down after my meet in November.
Does anyone have any advice/experiences to share? Is cutting out 1000cal too much at once? I won't do it if I can't keep making strength gains.
