In just a few short weeks, I have begun to reap the benefits of focusing on food intake, and not calories burned in the gym.
Last year, I literally ran myself silly, and went to the gym six days a week, taking serious cardio classes and would lose about a half pound per week. It took 12 weeks to lose six pounds. I didn't focus too much on my diet, hitting around 2,000 calories per day.
This time, I am working out about four times per week, taking classes I enjoy and pushing really hard every so often, and I am losing about a pound and a half per week. Calories are between 1400 - 1700 as suggested by my nutrition tracker, and wow, what a difference.
Knock on wood that this trend continues!
