thank you Susan and Coach Denise

one question, i eat in between 1400-1600 calories a day and my proteins comes out approx 15-18% everyday

is 30 minutes working out enough where i burn approx 250-300 calories a day

as per my TDDE i should eat 1600-1800 calories per day and i always end up gaining weight if i eat in between 1600-1800 calories a day

i am so confused what is right for me

As Susan pointed out, you want a balanced fitness program that includes cardio, strength training, and flexibility. While you don't burn as much doing strength training, your heart rate monitor still can't accurately give you a calories burned amount for that. Here's a page that explains this: www.sparkpeople.com/community/ask_the_expe

. Strength training has a lot of benefits, even if you aren't burning as many calories as you do during cardio, it does help you burn more calories overall. Here's an article that talks about the importance and benefits of strength training that you may find helpful: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness_artic

I don't believe you can trust calorie counts for weight training from a heart rate monitor.

I would recommend a balanced program that includes cardio, strength, and flexibility training. It's not always about calorie burning but about creating a body that is more muscular.
