I have realized that some things needed to be tweaked with my diet and exercise program. I am on the sidelines for a bit with exercise due to a couple of injuries. After a small period (4 days or so) of blaming everything else that I can and binging, I have now realized that all is NOT lost and that this experience is meant to teach me the evident things that I need to tweak in order for this to be a successful lifestyle change.
First and foremost, I think my calorie number was too low. I am 5'8 and weigh about 230. I had my calories set at 1200 and from what I've read this morning, I should realistically have them set in the range of 1400 - 1500? Does this sound right to you guys?
When I get back in the saddle of the gym, I know my calories will need to be slightly adjusted again, won't they? I am just curious of a good starting number that is healthy and not too restrictive as I think that was part of my problem previously. I would feel hungry in the evenings and found myself eating.
I look forward to your advice and support! Thanks gang!
