Dr. Gardner said it is not that calories don’t matter.

Listen up: Skipping meals will not make you lose weight faster. If a hectic day makes a sit-down meal impossible, stash an energy bar or a piece of fruit in your car or tote, keep snacks in your office desk drawer, and make a point of getting up to grab a nosh — anything that will keep you from going hungry! Going long periods of time without food does double-duty harm on our healthy eating efforts by both slowing down your metabolism, and priming you for another binge later in the day. (Think: You’ve skipped breakfast and lunch, so you’re ready to takedown a whole turkey by dinner!) Make it your mission to eat three meals and two snacks every day, and don’t wait longer than three to four hours without eating. Set a “snack alarm” on your phone if needed.
Can I eat less than the recommended amount? Yes, only if you feel satisfied with less food. Do not starve yourself. It will add an unwanted stress to your mind and when people get stressed they adopt bad eating habits, like more frequent meals and large portion sizes (1).

Salmon, much like mackerel, is a good source of lean protein, and a rich source of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Grill or steam with a bit of lemon and serve with asparagus for a powerful belly-flattening meal.
Hey Chris, other calculators use activity multipliers that are way too high, resulting in too big of a surplus and unnecessary fat gain. 2044 calories sounds low for bulking, so make sure you’re inputting your values correctly. Just find your TDEE and increase it by 10% for bulking. You can adjust from there if you’re gaining weight too fast, or not gaining. I hope this helps!

“Stepping on the scale frequently makes you aware of small changes and helps you quickly react to those changes. The National Weight Control Registry, a group of people who have successfully lost at least 30 pounds and kept it off for 5 years, found that successful ‘losers’ weigh themselves often and make adjustments accordingly. When you begin to understand that sodium, carb intake, hormones and alcohol intake can impact weight and that it isn’t possible to gain 2 pounds of fat overnight, you will begin to better understand your body. The key is to pay attention to overall trends; don’t obsess over day-to-day numbers! — Jennifer McDaniel, MS, RDN, CSSD, LD, food and nutrition expert
