I weigh 160 lbs. I don't really know what my maintenance calories are because I've been eating clean for so long, I just struggle with weight loss (reason why I'm trying trimax). I was going to an advanced cycling class (lasted an hour), so maybe i'll try that again and incorporate the stair stepper. So you guys think 1000 calories is way too low? I feel so bad if i eat more than that though. Here's what a typical day is for me:Originally Posted by WhutEvr
1/2 cup oats w/ fat free milk
1 scoop ON protein powder
1/2 cup cottage cheese
spinach salad w/ red wine vinagrette
Tilapia Fillet w/ 1 tbs salsa
1/2 cup plain fat free yogert

Since you don't have a height listed. I'm going to list a couple different calories for maintenance of 160# at different heights. All assume you workout 3-4 days a week.
5'8" - 2772 cal
6'0" - 2851 cal
6'4" - 2929 cal

In that post you say your maintenance cals are 1900, but you say she should be at 2200? That seems kind of odd to me... we are still trying to figure out her maintenance calories but they are definitely way below 2200.Originally Posted by WhutEvr

Age plays a large factor in calories needed (younger more calories/older less).
My calories for weight loss are based on
LBM of 154lbs (determined with float test).
Activity: lift 3 days, cardio 2.
If you know your true LBM, the calculation can be more accurate.

Good Lord dude, your cals are way to low!! Never drop more than 10 times your bodyweight in cals. My suggestion is this. Start out at 12 times bodyweight and gradually lower, but only lower if your fat loss has stalled. You've put your body in starvation mode.Originally Posted by Elizzard
