What?, what the heck am I talking about?, doing what correct?
I have to share as I recently shared with someone in conversation about caloric intake. It is normal especially if you are only using caloric calculation for your weight loss. I am aware everyone is not into physical fitness and a workout is just not a desire, psss but take a walk 2-3 times a week. Okay back to calories, she stated she was decreasing her intake by 500-1000 calories a day and was very tired and felt like her energy had been drained. The numbers are correct to decrease caloric intake daily.
HOWEVER, if you are already in a deficit, this does not apply to you. She had begin with a deficit and then attempted for a few weeks (she did not say how many) decrease her intake. Now let’s take in account she had just added a workout routine. NOW be it said I am not a nutritionist, but it is so necessary to calculate your lifestyle into your intake. The glory will be great for a few weeks or months then the body goes into starvation mode this really applies if you have a very active life and even more so if you are in a fitness program.
What do I recommend?, well most workouts, trainers have a nutrition recommendation, no they have several as applies to you and if you are good as you are I applaud you so many are. There are as many like me that require assistance, again what I like about my choice of workout there are calculations to assist with intake as well the recommendation for proteins, fruits, vegetables, carbohydrates and there are several choices of free food.
So before you decrease caloric intake ASK or SEEK assistance to be sure you are not sabotaging yourself or your workout. To a fitness of results CONGRATS you’re on the right track.
