Well ive read the stickies but i need some help if at all possible from you guys... well description of me is im 6'0' 225 at the moment. I manage a dry cleaning store so its alot of walking around and moving things around but nothing really strenuious. I have been going to the gym nightly for about 2 weeks running and oliptical for about 45 mins. the machines say im losing about 400 cals but am i doing too much or too little with intaking about 1800 calories a day. im trying to figure out how many calories i should intake and how much i should work out to get a steady drop in weight.. goal is about 180-185. thanks in advance i would appreciate any help.
