If hypothetically my maintenance is 1350 calories and I want to lose 11 lbs, I can not eat 850 calories to make a 500 calorie deficit, not even 1100 calories to make 250 calories deficit. I can make around 150 calories deficit to and eat 1200 and aim to lose the 11 lbs in about 9 months. And if I follow the reddit body weight routine this 9 months, can I build muscle even with the calorie deficit? Is there anything I have to do with macros? Or I can stick to MFP macros of 150g carb, 40g fat and 60g protein.
I am a very short sedentary woman. Aiming to lose the last 10-12 pound and get to 100 pound mark. I barely take 5000 non intentional steps, I live in a 550 sq ft apartment in Toronto.
I know a few things about progressive overload (too much fitness youtube scouring these days), and since I am quite weak, the body weight exercises will be a progressive overload for me with progressions. Another issue, that workout is 3 times a week, will take around 45 minutes. So those 3 days, should I eat back the exercise calories. It won't be much I assume. Something ranging from 50-100 calories given it takes 11 minutes for me to jump rope 1000 jumps with 10-20 second rest in between each 100 jumps and it burns somewhere around 40-50 calories for me.
