    a calculator like the one at M&S would probably be faster, easier, and more accurate:

    ^^ that takes gender and age into account.

    the math part is good. some people dont get how easy math it is, but once they see it its a very "derrrr" moment.

    This ^^

    But remember an online caluclator is only that. It gives you a #, weather how accurate that is nobody knows

    It does not factor
    - Metabolism
    - Genetics
    - Daily Activity
    - Non Exercise Physical Activity
    - calories burned from cardio/Workouts
    - Your daily Job and how active that is
    - BMR (Calories burned at rest)

    the best way to find the calories you need is trial and error over time

    Definitely agree with you, but as I mentioned in the videos description this sets a good base for that trial and error that's specific to everyone.

    is cutting and burning Fat the same. Im looking to take off 15 pounds in a month, but I want to keep as much of my muscle as possable. The past few months I have not lost much weight but my body is changing. my chest looks bigger but i have lost three inches in chest size and I have lost over and inch on my belly. my arms are still the same size. Im just ready to drop about 15 20 pounds and im redoing my diet. Im at 270 pounds and i would like to see 250. I have just changed my work out to weights three days a week and cardio i want try three as well. in the video you took off 500 cals for cutting. should I do that for buring fat ?

    That is called a RECOMP, basically eating at maintainace. If you lower your intake a bit more you will start lsoing weight and burning Fat,

    How much fat? who knows, the deeper you get into a cut you may start to lose muscle and burn muscle, Take cutting slow and you will retain your mass easier.

    Also stop measuring weightloss using mass, and start measuring it in inches
