Calories in Calories out (CICO)
I’m eating about 1000-1500 calorie deficit a day based on my TDEE to lose 2-3 pounds a week. Mostly average 1200 calorie days, says my sedentary should be around 2200 and my banal is 1900. Mostly eat 20-30% carb 30% fat 40% protein
The past 2 weeks I’ve held at the same weight despite holding these averages. I went from 255 to 235 and thats where I’m at now. I’ve been doing light dumbbell bicep curls daily not sure if it’s muscle through that? Also if I’m not at work or driving I’m usually at home at my desk or on my bed.
I’d say my lifestyle is a little more sedentary than normal and I know being more active would help but everything I read says that doesn’t really matter for now because i have a lot of fat to lose and the only thing that really matters is CICO? Also I’ve done 8/16 intermittent fasting a couple times a week but a large bulk of the calories have come at night?
**TLDR:** The rule I’ve read on here is CICO above everything else. I have tracked everything and I’ve plateaud the last 2 weeks. Lifestyle is sedentary and intermittent fasting during the week. Eating at night and sedentary lifestyle somehow interfering with CICO? Read more…#weightloss
