Hi all, On the back of the podcast with Jesss, loved the original successful athletes podcast and then last nights how to become faster similar repeat.

Want to check my numbers a bit.

I found the following… https://blog.nasm.org/nutrition/resting-metabolic-rate-how-to-calculate-and-improve-yours .

Men: BMR = 88.362 + (13.397 x69) + (4.799 x 168) - (5.677 x 46) = 1557 calories

For me this adds up to 1557, allot lower than what Jonathan mentioned (2200),

does this 1557 number sound/look correct for someone my age/size, I’m pretty fit in that |I’ve been on TR for 4.5 yrs, now, ftp of 250 at the moment, normally 4 workouts per week, indoor and trying 1 or 2 rides a weekend. plan is to loose 4Kg in next 2 months, which is probably not realistic either, average resting HR of 50. (wear a Garmin watch).

… Update, just saw the formula above.

Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) for males (kcal/day) = (9.99 x 69) + (6.25 x 168) – (4.92 x 46) + 5=231.32

would that be 231.32 kCal -> 2313 calories ?

again, 2 significant different numbers.

some guidance please, trying to determine a accurate’ish number to use as part of diet plan/tracking.
