I have about 10 pounds of body fat I want to lose around the mid section (hips, belly button region) Although you can't target where the body burns fat at I was wondering out if someone could give me some advice. I lost about 25 pounds by eating like 1200 - 1500 calories a few months ago. My maintenance calories are 2700, My BMR is 2050, I burn 250 calories 6-7 days a week from walking, and i guess 300 - 500 from lifting 5 days a week. I have gained a little muscle mass and do not want to lose it. I will however lose some of it if I can lose this belly faster. What amount of calories do you recommend I take in to lose the unwanted weight?
