Hi there! After reading through some other pages and asking about next steps with fitness, I decided the most appropriate place to go was here. I do not need to aggressively lose weight, and MFP has me eating 1290 calories because my job is very sedentary. That does not work for me, since I am lifting or running 6x week.
I gained a bit of weight during marathon training, and I expect put a lot of muscle on under some fat (some on stomach, some on legs). I'd like to cut a bit, but still be able to eat enough to manage my hypoglycemia and provide fuel on my lifting days. My schedule is currently lifting Mon/Fri, Run easy Tue (30-45 minutes); Tempo Wed (30ish), Speed Thur (25-30 intervals, tabata, etc) and then Long on Saturday (45-60 minutes atm)
I'm new to cutting while also building muscle. I want a good base for half marathon training this fall and a better base for my next full marathon. I can tell you I feel hungry (really, really) all of the time if I try and still around 1500 calories, which is what MFP has me at for maintenance right now. I feel okay around 1600-1700 on most days, but I'm not sure that will be helpful for cutting.
