Im only 5 foot 7 and currently 160lbs. I fit in mens size small shirts and have 30 inch waist jeans. Though i have no belly at all i still have back rolls or love handles that i read will disappear last or not start going away until im under 150.
I want to lose weigt but cant get below 160lbs. Yes i log. Yes i use a food scale. No i dont need to fo see a doctor.
My question is why wont the ap let me set calories at 1300 or 1400? That shouldnt be too low for a man. I only need it for a couple weeks to lose weight and once i do get to say 150lb i can THEN set it to .5lb a week.
Men in other countries who live healthy lives arent all eating 1500 .
1350 to 1400 would be perfect. And more than likely I'd still be at 1500 given label or logging in accuracy. Ive increased dumbell exercise. The last few months from 25lb hammer curls to 45lb so i am increasingly in strength. Though BMI still says im overweight and i should drop to be in healthy middle of weight range.
Why is eating 1350 to 1400 considered too aggressive and dangerous? That's nowhere close to a starvation diet.
Thats FOUR small 300 calorie meals plus a scoop of protein powder mixed with almond milk shake a day.
