View Full Version : Question about what I should be eating

01-19-2010, 07:08 PM
So, here is the outline: I have went from 205 to 167-169, I plan to go down to 155. What should I be eating to stay "Healthy" even though I am at a -1000 calorie deficit? I am trying to get in vegetables/fruits, and I am getting my meats for sure. I am getting enough water (120 Fl Oz), I am off of Soft Drinks for good, I don't eat fast food, I have cut out basically all the bad stuff. Except 1 thing, poptarts (lol I know terrible, but I still stay on the deficit) so I am just wondering, what should I be aiming for to stay healthy, even though I am losing fat/weight?

I am going back to Boxing next week, lifting and running too starts back then. So, I am going to be burning a lot of calories in that.

A multivitamin

yeah, definitely look into a good multivitamin. Sounds like you have a crazy work load, I'm not too experienced with caloric deficits, but -1000 almost sounds like too much for boxing, lifting and running. Hopefully someone more experienced will step in and answer that, this forum is amazing for that.

When you say a 1000 calorie deficit do you mean that you're eating 1000 calories under your maintenance or 1000 calories less than you used to?
