Calories per day
I am a 49 year old male, 5 foot 11-inches in height.
I know most sites suggest that I take in 2,000 calories per day but I'm wondering, shouldn't caloric intake also be dependent upon your weight?
All things being equal (sex, age, height, daily activity), wouldn't you think that someone who weighs 160-pounds would need fewer calories than someone who weighs 194 pounds?
The reason I ask is I'm trying to figure out how many calories I should be consuming if/when I reach 160 pounds. I started this journey at roughly 194-pounds and have worked my way down to 172 pounds and hoping to eventually reach 160-pounds which will put my BMI at a healthy 22.3.
