I have a question, I know it may be a stupid one but I don’t quite understand. If you’re supposed to eat 1,200 cals a day (that’s what my weight doc told me before) how many cals are you supposed to burn off during workout to lose weight that’s safe? Thanks!
You can burn off those calories without any workouts. But if you do workout it will put you in a further calorie deficit. To be safe you should eat a little more than the 1200 Cal if you plan on being physically active more than what is typical for you
I too have struggled with this question, and I got a few very different answers which only confused me even more so what I’m personally doing is my base iñtake of calories is 1430 however I do go to the gym 3 days a week there fore I’m burning approximately 450-500 calories all depends how hard I push myself (yes some days I am lazy) nevertheless I’ve been adding additional 150 calories, now he other 3 days I snowshoe which for me burns even more calories therefore I eat up to 300 additional calories and they are healthy calories not junk food and I drink 8-14 cups of water, now with that all said I’m 48 I weigh 240 so is this working for me well since I’ve only started Feb. 1st and last night I got on the scale just to see and surprisingly I lost 5 lbs so maybe I am and maybe it’s water weight so I’ll see at the end of the month and maybe it’ll work or maybe I’ll have to adjust
