Doing the math

Wednesday, August 19, 2015

I've been exercising regularly (and hard!) and eating well for several weeks now, but not lost an ounce. I've checked various recommendations and crunched some numbers and have decided to try the following nutritional goals. I'm recording it here so I can remember.

2000-2200 Daily Caloric Need (Maintenance)
20% deficit
Approximate Range:1550 - 1700

1550 @ 40/40/20 Carb/Protein/Fat
155/116/52 g/day

1750 @ 50/30/20

1550-1750 cals 155-219 g Carb, 116-131g protein, 39-52g fat.

It's a change, but it's time to try something new!

    I AM building muscle. :) But I've been eating more than I'm hungry for to meet my caloric needs. So I think it's time to mix it up! Thank you so much for the feedback.

    Changing things up is a good thing especially if your not seeing the results that you had hoped for. Remember that you might be building muscle and that is a reason for not as much weight loss. Measure yourself to use as a guide.
