On average what should be the total caloric intake for a 4'9 200 pound male eat per day?
First, you need to know the build of the man. Is he petite, average, or tall? Is he trying to maintain his weight, lose weight, or gain a few pounds? These are two very important factors if you wish to recieve a correct, or even close estimate. Additionally, once you know these pieces of information, you will need to know his level of activity so that you can determine the correct number of calories. For example, a tall, big boned man, who is extremely active will need to eat more calories per day to maintain his weight than an average sized man who is trying to gain weight. Once these factors have been determined, there are many websites that can be accessed to find the best estimate. Try webmd, or if you prefer a more structured site, you can research through the military, which provides stricter guidelines.1899 days ago
