Trying to get started on this HCT-12 program, trying to figure out what I should be eating. The HCT-12 nutrition article says to take your target or current BW times your activity level. I'm assuming this pertains to your time in the gym, but was curious if I should take into account my highly active job.
I work receiving for a Bed, Bath, and Beyond and am lifting boxes all day long - probably an average of 25lbs. Should I consider my job when finding my activity level? I figure I'm burning more calories than average and so I feel I should be using the "High Activity Level" of 19 but I only plan on being in the gym about 5 hours a week (which would be a 16 multiplier) .
