Hey everyone, i've found myself stumped. Recently i've decided to get back into the healthy eating and cardio routine. So first thing I wanted to do was break down my calorie consumption per day. I have looked at several different formulas and online calorie calculators. After receiving many different numbers for my "suggested" calorie intake, I was hoping someone here could help.

So first things first, I work construction so i'm moderatly active at work. My plan is to do cardio 3-4 times per week for at least 45 minutes (biking). My main goal is to lose some extra fat around my gut. I'm a 6'0" 170 lb 21 year old male. What would you guys suggest for my daily calorie intake with said information. Thanks in advance for your input i'll check back tomorrow. :)

who cares about calories as those things arent accurate anyway

lean protein with every meal, tons of fibrous veggies get in your efa's and some starchy carbs around your workouts and lots of sscv cardio

eat monitor and adjust when necessary is all anyone ever needs
