Newbie quetstions, RDI and exercise
Greetings folks-

I picked this back up after a while, and I wanted to ask about the recommended daily intake numbers.

After putting in where I am, (305, 6'3", looking to go south of 200 as a long term goal), for moderate, one pound per week weight loss, I'm recommended to have 3,000 calories RDI.

This seems absurdly high for a couple of reasons - first because I can eat garbage food and easily come in under this amount (we're talking mcdonalds, soda, the whole lot).

It doesn't seem like dieting, in other words. I've put in some of my meals from days gone by and always manage to come in under this number reliably, yet my weight is a problem.

In short, what's up with that? 3000cal does not seem like a diet.

On that note, the information on the exercise page seems rather high as well. 7 hours of desk work burning 1500cal (all on a PC). Yesterday, my food diary has me at 2500cal, and I supposedly burned 3879 just sleeping and doing computer work.

These two things combined would imply that I should be losing weight like crazy, with a 1378 calorie deficit per day!

I must be understanding something wrong, here. Could someone help me out?
