Here are my stats:
Weight: ~ 81kg
Body fat: ~ 26%
I work roughly 5 days a week and my role requires me to stand pretty much all the time. I complete about 7K - 10K steps because I sometimes find the opportunity to sit but the role doesn’t require any heavy duty work or heavy lifting.
On my days off, I’m not active. I’m going to try and strength train for 30 min 3/4x per week as I used to.
I lost so much weight from Oct 2020 - Dec 2020. From Jan - March 2021, I plateaued but I managed to get down to 79kg in Mid April. Then it was my birthday and I kinda went off track. Luckily, I kind of maintained my weight because I think the 79kg in April was due to water weight loss. But who knows, maybe I actually was 79kg. Anyhow, I’m struggling to know how many calories I should eat. Because I’m constantly working, I don’t want to he depriving myself of food. But at the same time, I don’t want to overeat and not be in a defecit. I am trying to keep my protein intake high to about 150g+. I just haven’t felt the buzz of doing strength training anymore. I don’t have the energy....whereas I used to love it and the thought of it would energise me. But now, I genuinely feel weak and sloppy.
Would appreciate some advice! I know what I need to do, I just need a clear plan of calories.
