I tried this calculator and saw that I needed 3012 calories per day. Still it seems a bit high because, eating 1000 calories each meal for brakfast, lunch and dinner is (while enjoyable) pretty hard.
Also, the website tells me that I am pear shaped and that I have more fat below my waist. That can't be right either because I have literally no fat under my waste. I do 30 minutes of stairmaster at level 10 - 4 times a week.
But thank you for suggesting the website. Short of getting a full exam by a dietician, I will just try to shoot for 2000 to 2500 colories per day. My goal is to get to 200 by the end of the year.
