I’ve been reading a lot of the articles on T-Nation for awhile now. They are great articles chock-full of information–the problem is, I’m having a bit of trouble putting that information to work for me.
I am a 22 year old female, 5’5 and 169lbs. I’m in an Olympic lifting program 3x a week and on Fridays I have a small persoanl lifting session. Unlike most lifters I like to run, so that happens about 2x a week (3 miles or so). I also walk about 2 miles everyday.
I want to lose fat, but I’m not sure how to balance my caloric needs with all of my traning. I know I need a calorie deficit, but I’m unsure how much of a deficit is needed to promote fat burning while not harming my metabolism. One macro counter told me 1200 cal on lighter training days, 1400 on heavier days. Something tells me this is not right…
I really hate to be that annoying girl, but I’m desparate for help. Any direction y’all could give me would be deeply appreciated. Thank you!
