That he actually needs to eat more? He was 280 at 5'8 and 65 yrs old. He had a knee replaced and after he got better, started to loose weight. He started going to the gym after he turned 65 ( insurance finally pays for it) and is doing great. He works out for about an hour 3-5 days a week. He looks like he is melting and now weighs 230 something. I finally got him to put a mfp app on his phone so he can track. Mom said he isn't eating enough, and if she thinks so then he really isn't because she doesn't eat very much either. I calculated his bmr for him taking workouts into account and subtracting 500 for weight loss and he said there is no way he could eat that much. I know how he feels, I never thought I could eat my bmr and loose weight but I can ( as long as I stay pretty low carb). I advised him the same and he is thinking about it.
I am so proud of how great he is doing but he should be eating more. How can I convince him?
