So I have known that eating is a lot of my weight problem. I find self-control hard to find and sticking to calorie ranges has been difficult for me.
For the month of May (1200-1660)=
I stayed in my calorie range: 9/20 days
I stayed under 2000 calories: 3/20 days
Was over 2000 calories: 3/20 days
Unaccurate tracking: 5/20 days
I had/have been working out a lot. Like 5 days a week. I updated my fitness tracker to account for that but it left my calories the same.
Today it randomly updated it to 1420-1770. I am thinking it is a good thing it rose.
According to the New Rules of Lifting book I should be eating:
Metabolic rate 1582
Non-workout days: 2373
Workout days: 2689
But I'm not always lifting. I am only doing it 2 maybe three times a week. It seems like so many calories. But I don't want to be starving my body. But I want to be loosing weight, loosing fat and gaining muscle.
I am so confused. What do you guys do? Do you follow your spark-guide? Do you use something else? I am just really confused right now. I'd like to look through some nutrition trackers but unfortunately not a lot of people have them set as open.
