How much do I eat?
I have only been working out for a couple of months, I've noticed some new muscle but want to cut back on the fat. I know you basically need to burn more calories than you take in but I'm not sure how much I should have in a regular day.
I am 18, 5'8" 175 lbs, I can't really supply an overview of my routine because its kind of random right now. I will build a routine based on what I should take in in a given day. I dont know what is a lot. It could be 10, could be 1 000 000. I am a lamen on tehis subject, someone please help me.
I have been trying to find one of those weight watchers charts where it says how much someone of your weight should eat but can not find it. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

For you maintenance is between 2100 Ė 2400 calories a day depending on your level of activity. This means how much you can eat just to stay even. Youíre young so itís probably on the higher side. If you want to gain you need to eat more than that by at least 500 calories a day. Now you just need to figure out your diet. 800 of those calories at least should be protein; this would give you 200gms a day.
I would suggest you read Daveís clean bulk sticky.
