I’ve reversed diet to the point I’m eating 2050 calories a day☺️
I do weight training 4x/week with 1-2 days of cardio.
I’m about to fly out to see my friend for about 9-10 days, and we will not be going to a gym nor will we be staying in various Airbnb’s. I don’t plan to exercise other than go out for some walks here and there.
This week and next week (leading up to my flight), I am doing an intense 4-day split for my weight training so I can work muscle groups a lot harder and longer by giving them more attention each day. It’ll help me have a more peace of mind when going on vacation and becoming more sedentary.
Depending on my weigh-in on Sunday, I may or may not increase to 2150 calories, and then I would spend that week eating 2150 and working out right before I leave.
My question is— should I aim to hit 2050 (or 2150 if it changes) calories everyday on vacation? Or should I eat less? How much less?
I know that after my reverse diet I would like to cut again, but I want to be able to have my deficit be at around 1900-2000 calories (so I guess my goal for reverse dieting is eating 2400-2500 calories?). I’m trying to improve my body composition by building leaner muscle and burning the skinny fat on my belly. I’ve only gained 2-3 lbs since February of increasing calories, which I know is mostly muscle— I’ve gotten so much stronger since then!! I’m so proud.
I’m just unsure what to do for vacation.
