The trick is to figure out how many calories you're burning through your exercise.
A general rule is that the 'average' 150 lb woman burns 100 calories per 15 minutes of moderate exercise.
Thanks. So I do the NROLFW 3x a week and many times will do HIIT afterwards, which ends up being about 60-90 minutes of working out (so maybe 400-600 calories burned, although I'm 188 but it's probably better to be on the conservative side) so that means maybe an extra 200-300 calories those days? That makes sense because I think I could eat something like 1700-1800 on lifting days and be ok. Thanks!
