So, here’s the deal. I work as a server approximately 40 hours a week. About 15 of those hours are spent during crazy rush time where I’m walking at a brisk pace carrying(somewhat, 10-15lbs or so) heavy loads of plates around etc.
The rest is much more relaxed, for the most part. I’m curious as to what kind of an effect that would have on my daily caloric needs when cutting.
As an example:
I’m 6’0" weighing 190 lbs currently. I eat somewhere in the range of 2500 calories a day, spread across 6 meals. I train 3 days a week for approximately 45 minutes to an hour on a body-part split(M/W/F).
For cardio I do about 35-40 minutes of low intensity fasted work in the morning 5 days a week(M-F), and 2 20-ish minute sessions of sprinting at a field near my home(Tues/Thurs). Weekends I take off to fully rest.
Basically, I’m wondering if that will be sufficient to attain a respectable level of fat loss, or if I would still need to cut my calories further or make adjustments to my training regimen. I feel like my calories are a tad on the high side, but that maybe my relatively active daily job would help to offset that.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Quick Edit: I know most of you reading this are thinking “why the hell are you trying to cut fat at 6’0” and 190 lbs?". Well, I started out very weak and skinny, but with a noticeable gut. Somewhere in the 18% bodyfat range, 36" waist if I remember correctly. This was about 4 months ago. I’ve since gained about 15 lbs and kept my waist about the same, maybe an inch smaller from beginner fat loss despite trying to gain weight. At this point I’d just like to get myself down to a respectable amount of not-fatness before continuing on my quest to get hyoooge. Only trying to drop about 20 lbs.
