I need input (BMR, MFP, BFM)
I am 29, 5'10 and currently 188 lbs. I work out at
Most, 6 days a week. At Least 4. The BMR calculator I use currently has me at 1929. TDEE is 2990, and my cut value (20%) is 2392 calories to lose 1 lb a week.
I honestly have been doing 2000 calories per day. Or a little less. I dropped and just realized I need to adjust, but, I am def not netting that much. Should I be netting 2392 calories a day? Or at least my BMR?
I am not lifting heavy...I do cardio and strength train. Ultimately, when I join the gym I will be lifting heavier.
Anyways, I track in myfitness pal (MFP) and I have a body fit media (BFM) armband. My daily deficits are always way more than my daily goal of 500 calories.
I guess I need input on how to make my weight loss steadier. Or advice/tips....I know that everyone is different, etc. the last few weeks, it's drop....wait wait wait drop 4 more lbs. I have been losing an inch here and there.
Also, calorie intake wise, how in the hay can I cram more in? I know what to eat, I am truly struggling with how to put it together so I can get the most impact out of my calories...does that make sense?
Any advice on how to streamline it? I feel like I have all this data, but it hasn't quite clicked with how to properly utilize it.
Or do y'all think what I am doing is pretty good? I feel that there is always room for improvement and I would love some constructive criticisms.
Thanks, I know this was a long post to read.
