In short, my question is "How actually calorie calculation works?" Now, I will try to describe my question in detail. While surfing net I found a calculator which claimed that it can identify my minimum calorie requirement. By reverse engineering I found the formula was nothing but
My Weight * 24 = Total amount of calorie required for my body
Total amount of calorie required - 500 = minimum intake for my body.
[which truly doesn't applicable for people having 0-45 Kg]
Having said that, I have two question,
- How much minimum amount of calorie required for my body when I am doing cardio + normal gym routine + daily home and office work? I doubt about the above formula.
- What is the best way to reduce weight via calorie control without damaging body. Ex. If my daily intake is 1200 cal , so do I have to burn more than 1200 cal everyday to reduce my fat?
from my knowledge, more muscle consume more calorie (just like car engine, more horse power more consumption of gas), so limiting calorie intake can cause damage to my muscle growth?
Sorry for my bad English
