Right to the point, Im a big guy. 6'3 and was 338lbs when I decided to change my life to be healthier, and no be limited due to size. I learned about TDEE, and have always set it as sedentary to see my intake for off days.
Multiple calculators gave different results. So I started about 2600 cal TDEE and ate about 500-600 cal less a day. I lost some weight, down to 284 and was seeing the estimated weekly drop. Currently I have stalled although my weight training has improved and strength going up.
Question is,: How low of intake would be ok for someone needing to cut a lot without hurting metabolism? I see recommended protein intake is .8 to 1.2g protein per lb, but is that body weight or lean body mass?
