No, it's not good. And how do you know you need 2000? Forget what they say on the signs, it's just a general number.
Google for metabolic rate at rest and you will find websites where you can enter your weight, size, age.
Find out how much calories you need and reduce max 20% or you will lose muscles!
This is valid if you would sleep all day. If you're active, you have to add the calories you burn while being active.
*Scotty K has a really good thread on this with how to find your specific caloric intake for maintaining/gaining/or losing weight.
I can't link it but let me find it and I'll bump it the top
Pls i need to know too.
Because it's says on the back of food and in the health books 2000 is the calorie intake women need per day.
