I’m finally back training again after 2 years off… any ways.
spent the past year dieting down from 99kg to 86ish, it’s been simple and slow but easy to maintain.
I’m now training 3 times a week minimum, with more fat loss goals. as its been a while I’m doing 3x8 of just a standard programme, focusing on the compounds, 5-20 minutes of cardio before/after depending on how I’m feeling.
my BMR is around 2k, but I’ve seen that’s without activity, when I put that in it’s nearly 3k. I’m currently eating around 1700 a day, with 1 day a week that I may go up to 2100. my diet is currently 40/20/40, pcf. with the high day being 40% carbs instead of fat. I’ve got a fitbit charge hr, which appears accurate, lazy days come off about 2.1k calorie burn. but some days i’m at 5k with training and work.
only supps I take are CLA/fish oils and the odd pea based protein
the big question… am I eating within a valid window for fat loss or should I change it up a bit, I’ve been going around a week atm. I know I shouldn’t notice any change that fast. I just don’t want to end up 6 weeks down the line with no progress.
