I don't use it in clinical practice, though some people will. I'm just not comfortable, because it's so hit or miss, mostly miss.
Here's a way to simplify your caloric intake.
Based on your current weight, bodyweight x 10.
You've got enough there to meet the 2,000 a day requirement and around another 400 for exercise.
With a decent Protein intake of around 30-40% total daily calories, 720-960 calories, 180-240g Protein, you'll be able to start building muscle, but when you start getting more muscle, every lb you get, will burn an added 45-50 calories, so when you hit yout target, then start adding more calories in, because initially it would be about altering muscle to fat ratio, before you go for solid mass gain.
