I come with a simple question that may not have the easiest of answers.
"How do I Adjust my caloric intake to work with my gym routine."
I have recently joined Sparkpeople at the strong suggestion of a friend of mine. We are both aiming to lose weight as a team effort. I will be honest, I am not the biggest fan of calorie counting I don't want it to take over my life once I lose my weight.
That aside, right now I have found myself getting around the bottom half of my spark people suggested caloric intake and lost three pounds in three days. This isn't healthy sounding nor does it sound right.
I weigh 198 (approx) right now. I am a 23 year old male at 5'7". I got to the gym 4-5 days a week and do a somewhat vigorous workout. I am looking to push my mile time to 8 minutes prior to preparing for a 5 K run. (routine designed by a planet fitness trainer)
With this information in mine, how do I adjust my caloric intake? I don't think the suggestion by this site is properly accounting for it right now.
