So, know one really knows
The real question is: What makes you think 4000 kcals per week is a great guideline? Personally, I think it's a total facepalm.
I just think its a good guidleine. Nothing definitive.
I actually think its a good starting point, and each person could see if they thrive on more or less.
I need 2500 cals a day to maintain.
F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.
If I could activity in my calorie burn, I easily get 4000 a week. But if we are talking about strictly exercise, getting 500 calories a day burnt from exercise (cardio and/or weight training) is not possible for me.
