newbie question >_<
So, today is my first day on 3fc and *when I'm dieting* I count all my calories the only thing is, I'm used to Crash dieting, eating 600-900 everyday which works great until you realize you live on planet earth and can't possibly maintain that. Anyways, I looked up all different BMR/Metabolism calculators and being 5'5" 22years old with little to no exercise (gonna change once its not miserable outside) it said my BMR was around 1475 but need to eat 1775, so to finally get to my question, how much of a deficit do you need to lose, even if its just a pound or two a week? I really don't want to be caught in that same cycle again can you blame me lol and also, what should that deficit be out of, Bmr or calories needed? I'm so lost at trying to do this the right way!
