This is my first post..great site , have been on reading a lot and still a little confused
so i figured my bmr with 3-5 days of exercise to be 2749 calories--i do crossfit 2-3 x /wk , play basket ball 1 x and am on feet at work all day moving around(walking slowly)
body fat is about 14%
weight is 176lbs, so 151 lbs of lean body mass..
so 151x .7----105 g protein x 4== 422calories
100 g carbs x 4 ===400 calories
rest has to come from fat? even if i eat 100 g of fat x 9==900 calories
still only around 1800, that is a 1000 below bmr..
i am trying to lose some body fat around mid section--do these numbers seem correct...also having a hard time getting to that much fat ...is an apple with almond butter ok before bed
any help would be great..thank you
i only eat 1500-1600 cals per day and of those around 900 are fat cals. it's not hard to do once you get the hang of it. breakfast was broth with 2 tablespoons of butter, seaweed and an egg. there was tallow with the broth. that was 300 fat cals just right there.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
