Add up all of the calories you eat for a week.

Divide by 7

Weight yourself at the beginning of the week and at the end under the same conditions. Assuming wieght stays the same, you've found your maintenence calories.

Thats' it??!!! No formulas or calculations?geez.
I guess it would have to be trial and error due to everyone's metabolisms being different.
Where did I get the BWx15 figure from? I must be insane...

you answered your own question NM, if everyones body is different as well as their metabolic rate...why would a generic figure like BWx15 work??
