The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    hiya harry,
    not quite sure what exactly your question is?
    but if your asking what amount of calories you should be getting then perhaps you might wanna read this article, its pretty helpful in designing a cutting diet

    Start at bodyweight x 12 (2016 for you) after a couple of weeks:

    a) if you're losing less than 1-1.5 lbs per week reduce cals by 200
    b) if you're losing more than 1-1.5 lbs per week increase your cals a bit

    keep going until you reach the desired weight or BF%

    So you don't wanna get big, do you?

    you can lose with diet only, cardio will help though
