    The dieting thread

    I was ok working out on 1800 calories as long as it was net. Also the timing of eating is key and what you eat pre and post workout with a need for appropriate carbs to avoid fatigue. I did and do have a post workout protein shake using 92% purity whey, Pink Sky - no hormones, organic grass fed cows. I tend to have rest days between heavy (1 hour) workouts although I do a short 10- 15 minutes burst each day of press ups, pull ups etc. That helps with fatigue. Once I got to the weight I wanted I calculated how much was needed for maintenance, adjusting the macros as I indicated above to strengthen/build muscle whilst staying lean. Getting there hopefully. I agree that MFP is poor on estimating calories burned and I don't use it for that. Instead I worked out a much more conservative estimate for my workouts.

    http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20180522-we-dont-need-nearly-as-much-protein-as-we-consume Suggests it is difficult to overconsume protein.

    Thanks. When I say overdo, I don't mean overly excessive but could perhaps pare it back and still get the benefit in terms of muscle building. I also get much of my protein from non red meat sources.

    6 feet tall. I now maintain my weight with net 2,600 calories per day. So on days I train, I put in my estimated calories burned and eat more to keep that net calories consumption. I also have macros of 40% carbs, 30% each protein and fat. I keep the protein quite high as trying to build muscle. I don't beat myself up too much if I miss targets slightly especially if carbs up and protein down or if I have a day over and then a day under, if it evens out on the whole. When I was set on losing weight, I had 1800 calories as my daily target. I kept the carbs and protein up but dropped the fat. You'll get most of your energy from your (complex) carbs and so I ensured I didn't cut those dramatically. Hope you get my injuries sorted. I had a niggle with my wrist a few weeks back and had to break from training which was a pain. Try this free kindle book by Marc McLean - Strength Training Nutrition 101. Excellent. I perhaps overdo the protein...

    Just a quick follow up on my post above and thanks by the way for the likes and comments. I now realise the huge importance of hydration and fibre in supporting healthy eating and weight management. So I drink a couple of pints of water - with a good squirt of fresh lemon juice - each morning as a start. I also supplement my breakfast (plain Skyr with blueberries and honey) with cold milled flaxseed (Linwood) and chia seeds, both in Tesco. They actually add to the taste. That pushes your fibre up - get at least 35 grams in every day. Not trying to preach, or state the bleedin' obvious, just some things I've learned personally over last six months or so.

    Have come down from 15st 7lbs to 13st 3 lbs since last October and put on muscle instead of fat too. Have been the same weight now for the last six weeks. Dropped 36" waist to 32". Best shape in over 30 years. Secret has been the gym - strength training sessions - and proper diet. I don't eat shit anymore and use MyFitness Pal to monitor what I eat in terms of calories and type. Recommend the latter highly.
