    they say a man should cosume 2500 calories per day... I find this very hard tbh. I eat three meals per day withou snacking and I recon its more like 1500 calories that I am getting (if that).

    I was doing almost 4,000 calories up until a month or 2 ago. Been doing intermittent fasting to try shift a bit of fat, and I'm just taking less on board due to that. Don't know how much exactly though. Probably closer to 2,500.

    I think your appetite can be driven by the amount of exercise you do. I train like 9 hours a week so I'm always hungry.

    You'd have to eat pretty clean. One pizza can be 1000+ calories. Cup tea with milk can be 10 calories. It all adds up.

    At the moment I do 2 slices of toast in the morning, sometimes with poached eggs. Then for dinner I do mixed peppers, cucumber, pasta, tomatoes and some tuna mixed with salad cream, then for tea it can be free for all. Having the healthy stuff for dinner has made a 2kg difference if I am honest, not that I am a big lad, but I was concerned about visceral fat, which is the bad stuff that wraps around the organs.

    As for the calories, I would say 1500 daily, except at the weekend, i tend not to care then.

    In regards to counting calories, its depends on the calorie that you are consuming, if its something refined and that has sugar in it then thats bad for you as in it doesnt contain any nutrition or if it does it very little, if you ate 1500 calories of pure healthy stuff, you would see the benefits sooner rather than later.

    As for exercise, I play football, badminton and I will cycle to work as often as possible, ie not lashing it down or gale force winds, for me I make sure I get plenty of carbs and protien and sometimes if I feel I am hungry, i tend to down some water as hunger can be a sign of dehydration.

    Does wine count as a meal? :)
