A few years ago I saw a nutritionist who told me to eat 1200 calories a day, do cardio 4 times a week, and strength train 2 times a week in order to lose weight (I had about 7 or 8 pounds to lose). I'm in a similar situation now, trying to get the last of my baby weight off but I'm confused about the fact that I get the starvation mode warning when I put in the exercise. Isn't the point to burn off more calories than you take in? How can I really do that when I keep adding calories to make up for the working out (not that I don't love that idea!!!)?
Any advice would be great. I'm new here and am loving this site!
