Don't use those equations because they are very inaccurate. Find it by trial and error. If you haven't be chnaging you're bodyweight recently, then eat for a few days without changing your habits. Track everything you eat and average it out for those days. This will give you a MUCH better idea then some equation designed to meet the population average.

I think he needs a starting point on how much to eat. I say multiply your bodyweight by 15 and experiment wtih that. If you gain weight, drop it down. If you lose weight, then add weight.
It might take you 2-4 weeks to figure out your maintence cals.

Bodyweight x 15 is a bulk for me.
For someone with a fast metabolism is could be maintenance.
