Hey guys and gals.
This is my first post, as i have only been a member for a short period and i prefer to have a look around.
Just to let you in on some stats....I'm 5''9 and weigh 64Kg (140lbs) my measurement are 36-30-36. my upper arms are 12.
i am also 17 years old.
I used to weigh 90Kg (around 200ish).I have been dieting for around 8 months,only in the last 2 months have i been exercising,as i recently joined the gym.
My dilemma is that im confused about how many calories i should be eating and whether i should only aim for 1 pound or 2 pound losses.I have been losing around a kilogram a week(2.2 pounds)by eating around 1250 - 1350cals a day and burning 1700 cals through cardio,plus weights 3 times a week.Im not seeing much results in terms of fat reduction.I'm scared that im losing muscle,i still have ALOT of fat that needs shifting.I have a very boyish figure(android shape??) and although im at a healthy weight i am still very chubby.I need advice urgently as i don't wish to be a very low weight!!!
I'm seriously considering taking a break from my diet and come back to it but i would rather not have to do this.
I have also become very obsessive and can tell it is not healthy.Since July,i had been planning a massive pig out at Christmas as my ''break'' and i couldn't even resist counting everything i ate at the end of the night:| around 4000 calories!! grr,please help i can't stop obsessing.
