I was usually eating 1,200 calories a week when i recently decided to count calories, but my weightloss has slowed dramtically and I have decided to up my calories to 1,600 which is around what the Spark people calculator reccomended. I used to be 350 and am currently 290 and would like to lose 90 pounds within 16 months.
I am currently going to start my ChaLean extreme workout phases which is weight lifting (which are the burn circuits, whcih I will be doing in the morning) with 2 days of cardio, and adding my own cardio in the afternoon
I am new to this site so hopefully I put this in the right area. Also, I would love to know other peoples opinions on the calories, I want to lost 90 pounds in 16 months and I am wondering if it is going to be too many calories/ not enough to sustain or put myself in starvation mode which I think has happened with the 1,200 calories. Any other advice is welcome!
So the workouts are about 1 hour and 30 mins everyday, with one day only being 1 hour and 2 rests days a week
These workouts are not new to me and I can do these without any problem, I just want to make sure that I do this right so they wait comes off since it has slowed down, and I recently just got out of a plateau and I dont want to hit another if I am doing something wrong
