thanks Rob. That figure was based on the rule of thumb calculation in Diet Recovery 2 (“target weight in pounds” x 23), and isn’t too far off what other calorie calculators have told me over the years.
Left to my own devices I’m doing well to hit 2000 calories per day without ever feeling hungry. I’ve been trying to get lean for years using the “eat less / exercise more” approach so I guess my body has had a long time to adjust to low food volumes.
I’ll give more salt a go, thanks for the suggestion!
