Am I eating too much? I think my metabolism is damaged or my fitbit GROSSLY overestimates my calories.
Weight: 180 lbs
30 minutes on a 12 incline treadmill on 2.7 speed (I am DRIPPING by the end, estimated i burn around 250-300 cals)
30 Minutes of minor weightlifting using my dads equipment and youtube videos (fairly difficult)
(I am 16/8 intermittent fasting and its done nothing)
Oatmeal with some fruit and PB
Sandwich with deli meat/ cheese and lettuce/ or spinach
A protein bar
A protein Drink
Dinner (don’t have consistent count, its whatever my family makes, i take a small portion)
(My fitness pal guesses this around 1700 calories WITH the protein snacks, I’ve been trying to track meticulously)
I am literally exhausted all day, though my sleep hygiene is incredible (7.5-8.5 hours every night)
I am tired to the point i have to constantly stop in the middle of my workouts, then want to sleep after
2. Still very hungry at night ( I stop eating around 7, start again at 12 the next day)
3. Fitbit tells me I burn 2500-2600 calories in a day, I am supposedly eating in a reasonable deficit according to this number, and haven’t lost a pound/gained any muscle in almost 4 week long period (I have a body composition scale, muscle mass and fat content have not moved i literally weigh the same i did when i started)
If I'm supposedly in an 800 calorie deficit, how the hell have I not lost anything? Do I need to cut out the protein products? But then my calories go down to like 1400-1500, added to all that I burn with exercise that doesn’t seem safe
What the hell am I doing wrong? Is my metabolism damaged? Like I said, i think the protein products might be the problem but I’m still hungry and without them i'd be an extreme deficit.
Im going crazy. All input is welcome, clearly i need help.
