    great read!!

    could you provide me info about this TDEE calculator?? :)

    TDEE is the total amount of calories your body burns in a day. It includes the amount needed to sustain basic body functions (digestion, breathing, brain function, etc.) as well as the amount you burn through daily activity (job, cooking, watching tv) and the amount of calories burned through exercise. When you eat less calories than your TDEE you will lose weight. The key is to subract 10-20% from your TDEE to make sure the calorie goal is sustainable long term. There are a variety of TDEE calculators online, you can pick the average of a few or just pick one.

    I provided a link to one in the original post.
    1. Slight calorie deficit. Eating 800 calories and killing yourself in the gym is not going to get you there any faster. You need to fuel your body appropriately. I suggest the TDEE-20% method. www.1percentedge.com/ifcalc (If you have questions please feel free to ask them here). Make sure to weigh everything you eat! Guessing could put you well over your calories.

    There are many others if you decide to try a few and find an average. Just search google for TDEE Calculator.

    I personally use my Fitbit One for my TDEE.

    Thank you for this thread. Just this morning I was complaining to friends that even after 3+ years of working out 6 days per week, eating right, etc., I still have not demolished my c-section(s) flab flap. I've slacked off on lifting, that is the key aspect where my current activities differ from your suggestions. I love to lift, so I need to get back at it.

    Excellent advice, greatly appreciated. There are far too many fitness "pros" out there who are of the cauliflower cake variety, and that just isn't real life. I can skip a day or two of ice cream but I don't get into total deprivation. ; )
