was having similar rsults until I did a calculation of my BMR
(basal metabolic rate) Its easy to figure out, a BMR calculator can be found on google. I was just consuming too many calories. For my age/height/weight I need to stay around 1400 to lose. Good luck, keep at it
according to the calculator I just used my BMR is 2670.8. Then it says to take that BMR number and multiply by 1.2 if you have a sedentary lifestyle (which I had assumed since I sit at a desk 8-9 hours a day)
so 2670 x 1.2 = 3204 calories per day
OR since I go to the gym 5 days a week now I use the other number for moderately active it would be
2670 x 1.55 = 4138 calories per day
I'm eating, as stated earlier, between 2k-2500 per day. I can't imagine that I'm eating too few calories. As much as my brain tells me otherwise, everyone keeps saying the whole "muscle weighs more than fat" but even with muscle gains and going to the gym it seems like I should still be dropping weight.
