Long time lurker, first time poster-
I switched to a more bodybuilding style of lifting and I’m focusing on losing body-fat right now.
I was roughly 205-210 pounds when I started (the gym scale was broken so it’s not perfectly accurate). BW x 15 maintenance calories would be about 3,000 a day which still seems high to me. Currently I’m averaging 1800-2200 calories a day consistently, usually around 2,000. I am seeing results, but I don’t get that hungry at all during the day.
My question is how do you take into account physical activity? I live in a major US city and I normally walk 5 to 6 miles a day (as counted by a Fitbit step counter) with my weekends being closer to 9/10 miles. Does that count as high physical activity in conjunction with lifting 4-6 days a week? Any suggestions on whether I should eat more or less here?
I’m a little lost, when I was younger I would just do a keto diet to lean down but as I’ve gotten older I struggle to handle that diet over any long enough term.
