I have started fully commenting at the gym for about 2 months now and I go 4 times a week for weights and then 1 day for cardio. I have seen some impressive initial gains and have lost a little fat (I wasn't exactly fat to begin with but I wasn't lean if that makes sense)

The problem I am having is gauging how many calories I should take daily.
I am 5'11 and weigh 85KG right now, and I would suggest I have something like 18% body fat.
I work out solid 1 hour weight sessions 4 times a week and then cardio 1 time. The thing is that I work online and so I am at a computer 10 hours a day. I try to take a break every hour or so to walk around for 5 mins, do squats or pushups, but yeah that is my activity.

If I use online calculators it says things like take in around 2,900 calories for maintenance!

If I take my total calories for today:
>half of a whole chicken with squash, peas, carrots and potato
>oatmeal with berries
>banana
>Thai green curry and rice

I am not even meeting that, but it seems to much for my metabolism.. I am conflicted and don't want to put on weight but also of course don't want to lose muscle. Any advice?

East less clean food or it will be hard to get enough sheer matter in you to amount to your calorie intake

What would you suggest? The thing is that I cannot take in so much oils and fried foods due to a skin condition, there must be some foods that are calorie rich foods that are not so shitty for your health

psoriasis which effectively is a gut / autoimmune dealio, kinda sucks.

I have gotten onto using peanut butter in my oats and a few other things this week

well then the process is to find foods that do not aggrivate your disorder and utilize them without going overboard.

That is for you determine, but you can see how it is not impossible.

I'm sure online resources can list some foods that are safe, try the psoriasis forums.
