I've gotten pretty good at eating before working out. I just make overnight oats the evening before, leave in the fridge and then eat it before going to the gym in the morning. Thankfully it's not too heavy and I add loads of berries and protien powder to it so it sorts me out for the gym.Y’all eat before the gym??? I can’t. It makes me vom.
Do you have an iPhone? If so, if you go into the Fitness app, what does it say your daily total calorie expenditure is? Obviously this will change a bit day to day but you should see some kind of pattern. For example, I’m always around the 3000 calories mark. My PT told me that as long as I am in a 200-300 calorie deficit and eating 2g of protein per kg of body weight per day (with the rest coming from a mix of carbs and healthy fats) then I am eating enough to fuel my body for all the training I do, but not consuming too much where I’ll put on unnecessary weight. It’s a fine line though isn’t it, as if you consume too little then your metabolism will shut down and make your training ineffective.
Yes, you can probably consume a bit less on rest days - again, see what your iPhone says. You’ll likely be expending a good few hundred calories fewer on rest days, so go 200-300 calories of food under that.
Also, do you get your step count up as well as training in the gym? This is just as important as training if not moreso, and will help you expend more of the calories you are consuming. Think they called it NEAT. My trainer says I should aim for 15,000 steps a day - easier said than done with busy lives!
Yes I'm building muscle, but I'm also gaining weight in areas I don't want to.
But… this is normal? You can’t choose which calories go to building muscle and which ones are stored as fat, so… you’re bulking.
Oh yeah I know this nn, I was just wondering if I was eating too much and if I should be in a calorie surplus everyday.
So I moved to Portugal a month ago and weighed myself for the first time yesterday. I am weighing 94kg, which is officially the fattest I've ever been.
Since I moved I started swimming three times a week (but had to miss this entire week because I injured myself). However, I need something else. There is a gym at the residence where I am living but there aren't many equipment (and only two of them are muscle-building):
And I can't afford going to a gym right now because it's too expensive compared to Brazil (and my expenses are still being quite high). What could I do? Is buying a set of dumbbells or something worth it?
I just cant stop binge eating.....its so frustrating, pls help.
Does any one have this experience where people tell you you’re building muscle/toning up but you still see the same bitch you were when you started?
Just me? Okay.
