    [noob] 4000 calories?!

    So this friend of mine recommended WBB... I plug everything into Fitday, and it says I burned almost 4000 calories:
    http://fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJourn...igh%2Dfidelity
    (I'm 19, 6'5", 214)

    Thing is, there's no way I ate that many, and I doubt I do on a regular basis. Does this mean I need to start eating a lot more?

    When I do, it seems like I gain weight really rapidly -- after I started having a whole wheat bagel with egg & ham every morning, I was putting on a pound every two days! Since I have more fat than I'd like, I'm not sure if I want that to continue. Or am I seriously undereating and need more food to lose the fat and gain muscle?

    I've been working out for over a year with some results, but nothing spectacular.

    Don't judge how much you burned by FitDay. Manipulate your calories according to your own progress.

    Yes, at your size you need to eat more. To find out how much, track on fitday. When your weight doesnt change, that's your maintenance calories. I'd take a ballpark guess at 3500, but of course it will vary person to person.

    Your diet is crap. You need to double your protein at least. Definately take a look at the sticky threads in this forum and have a look at other peoples fitdays.

    i second - protein intake is VERY low for a 214lb guy (I eat >200g protein and I weigh 154). Definately go to the 4kcal range. Read the stickies, read the "what a bodybuilder eats" thread in the nutrition forum - this helped me a lot on food choises (search).
