Hello all! I'm going through a phase where I feel very frustrated and feel as though I should change up my routine and diet. I'm 5'2 and about 130llbs and I am trying to get tone and get rid of some lower belly fat and arm fat... im what people would call "skinny fat". Last year I had lost weight and weighed about 115llbs but still had that belly fat and this year I gained weight through bulking and have gotten bigger, but now I want to cut and tone up a lot more. I know I need to be on a caloric deficit and burn more calories then I eat, but the problem is if I go with this logic I need to eat 1000-1200 calories since as a petite person my body just doesn't burn as many calories even with cardio. I was doing this last year with body weight exercises and HIIT and although I lost weight and looked smaller I still had fat. Right now I really want to get tone and get rid of that belly pudge that just doesn't want to go away and ultimately build a physique that is more curvaceous and tone. I know I should be doing more strength training which I have been but I am so confused with how to combine it with my caloric intake and cardio.
