I'm not as concerned with an actual weight number, my goal is to gain lean mass and lose body fat.
For the purpose of calorie restriction my goal weight is 185 and I'm intaking about 2200 a day.
If that is your goal, you need to get your carb total to less than 100 grams per day. Less than 50 if you really want to get serious.
Regular maintenance is at 150 grams per day and you are 78 grams above that level even (on that particular day).
