I've dropped some weight since cutting my coloric intake back below my measured RMR (resting metabolic rate). I don't know why it took me nearly 2.5 years to go get the test done. I used to do it every January as prep for my cut before racing season started (March). Anyway, I went from an estimated sedentary daily kcal burn of over 2200 to under 1500 thanks to injury, etc. My RMR is under 1200 but 1500 is the estimate with daily activities. So now I try to stay under 1300/day.
