Ive been tooling around here for a while now.. what a great site!! Anyway I have the typical question on calories, but havent been able to find an answer for someone my size... I gained a lot of weight over the past few years and now its time for it to come off. I have been lifting 4-5 days a week and trying to do cardio 3-4 days a week.. Now that I am getting into a routine with this I decided to really focus on my diet.. I started doing the fitday thing... Anyway, I kept track of all of my foods today (a typical weekday) and found that I only ate around 1300 calories!!! I am trying to lose weight, but I just want to make sure this is not way wrong!! My goal is to lose somewhere around 50 pounds in the next 6 months.... My diet today consisted of 24 g of fat, 175 g of protein and 102 g of carbs... Can someone tell me if I am going about this wrong or if this is ok for someone who is trying to both get stronger with the lifting but also lose weight??? Oh I also started taking thermocin by AtLargenutrition...... THanks Everybody!!
