Can someone please explain this to me?!
It's all relative and depends on what works for you. Some like to do more cardio, some like to watch their diet closer. Personally I hate cardio so I took my diet and am completely OCD about it. Some background info: I have been lifting for about 2 yrs and went from 220 (post college) to 255+ (bf 30%+)working out 5 days a week because I had no idea how important nutrition was. I got stronger but felt horrible and out of breath doing little things. I learned that it would take hours of cardio every day to outwork a bad diet and like I said, I HATE cardio.

This website has free calculators and if you do the Katch McCardle method they are pretty darn close. I use the one above and the macronutrient calculator. I have my macronutrients goals set out for the day and try to hit them 6 days a week with the other day, usually leg day, being a "eat whatever I want within reason" day. I don't deprive myself either. If I want a donut, I get a donut. If buddies come over and want to bbq and drink, cool. I just work my macros so it fits somewhere in the ballpark of where I need to be. Just make that the exception not the rule. If you input your next day's food on here or eat similiar items all week it is much easier to hit those macro goals. I lift 4 days a week(heavy) and do 20min of light cardio after each weight session. This works for me as I have been dropping 1-2 lbs a week consistently for months and am now down to 225 at about 16% bf while maintaining and even increasing my strength. The key is finding what works for you, not what you feel comfortable doing, but what works. Hope that helps Smile

Define macros
Try this:

It will give you a range you can try out. You'll have to adjust depending on your goals.
