I also put this in Exersize and Fitness but should of put it in "nutrition" lol


I'm trying to figure out a better range then just 1200-1550 Like which amount would be better

I'm going on a lot of websites saying I should eat 2,000 + But i'm sure that's not right

Normally I'm at a desk minus house hold chores I do daily ( for right now) when I'm back in class it's going to be from a desk to standing 5 hours moving around alot.

I work out cardio atleast 35-50 4x a week ( not counting jump roping on ST days)
I do St 3x a week

I include Swimming, Boxing with a heavy bag. Ellipitcal on weight loss intervals, Biking on weight loss intervals or cardio intervals and jump roping for cardio. I also Stretch and do some light yoga.

St is normally Compounded. I try to do atleast 3-5 minutes for each group of exersize.
