I need your advice maintainers... I recently started maintaining. Well, very recently, about 1 month ago. I have consistently been losing weight despite trying to stop. I know that up until 2 weeks ago, I was consuming too few calories. Not on purpose but out of ignorance. I think that I am still consuming too few calories and I honestly have no idea how much more to add.
I am a 29-year-old female, 5'6", 125.8 lbs, BMI of 20.3 with a medium-large frame. Up until 2 weeks ago I was consuming about 1500 calories with 5-6 days per week of calisthenics, 1-2 days per week of HIIT, and 5 days per week of 2 hours of hill walking. I was obviously but unintentionally in too large of a deficit. I recently increased my caloric intake to 2000-2100 and have cut the 2 hours of hill walking, yet still walk leisurely daily because I'm simply active. However, I'm still losing weight. I lost another lb this week and I'm starting to get worried. How much more should I realistically eat on training days? I do about 70 min of calisthenics 6 days per week, 1-2 days per week of HIIT as well, and am moderately active.
A standard tdee calculator has shown a daily maintenance intake of 2036 calories (moderate exercise 3-5 days per week) or 2265 calories with heavy exercise 6-7 days per week. Can someone please help me figure this thing out? I'm getting frustrated now. I must sound like an idiot but I'm having trouble here. I don't want to lose anymore weight. I honestly can't believe I would have to say this.
