NoNameGuy saidBetween breakfast and luch I consumed 597 calories. According to Nu4You I need to consume 2400 calories per day to lose weight the healthy way. This leaves 1803 calories for the day. I have no intention of consuming 1803 calories for dinner and I don't feel like scrambling to figure out a way to consume 1803 calories. So if I have half of the 2400 calories alloted to me, is that really unhealthy if I just don't feel like eating anymore?
Yes that's very unhealthy 1500 is the absolute minimum an adult male should be consuming daily. If you eat less your metabolism will crash leaving you sabotaging your own efforts
I'd recommend consuming 1800-2000 calories and participating in a daily half hour of extra cardio. Breaking that up into 5-6 meals. 400 calories each with a 15-20g protein per meal
Doing this will raise your metabolism up approximately 10%. So if your basic metabolic requirement is average 2500. Retaining that at 10% above normal plus the calories used up in the half hour of exercise (350-400)
leaving you with a 1350 daily calorie deficit and allowing you to lose 2.5-3 pounds of fat per week.
Keep it to that will also make it much less likely to regain weight in the long term
