Start with the lower end if your worried about fat gain... the whole point is to keep a log of what you eat.. that way you just add/subtract calories to move up or down in weight at any point in training, 1 month form now, or 5 years.

These are nice charts, hadn't seen them before.

This is a good chart to go by for a guideline. I think this should be based off of clean eating. Some people say that a calorie is a calorie. They say that it doesn't matter what type of foods you eat that a calorie in compared to a calorie burned determines if you lose or gain weight. I disagree, maybe its just my body type but, if I eat 3000 calories per day of clean food for 2 weeks straight then switch to 3000 of unhealthy food for 2 weeks, I start to get fat and my weight changes. 2 weeks was long enough for me to realize that it isn't the same. Just something to keep in mind.

I agree, if I eat the same calories, but increase my carbs and go down on fats...I gain more fat. If I up the fats, and lower the carbs, I gain less fat.

I also think age has something to do with it. I know some young folks that can eat nothing but twinkies and look like fitness models. In my late 40s, I eat a piece of cake, I gain 5 lbs of fat. :(

Slight exaggeration, but point remains. :D

I think they're showing maintenance from age 19y/o onwards because that's when the calorie intake starts to decrease; up until then with people still growing, the calorie intakes rise with age.
