What does eating enough look like?
I’ve been talking a lot about utilizing this time of the year to your advantage by training hard and eating enough!
For a calorie estimate, take your weight x13-16. Go on the low end if you do a lot of sitting and don’t have a lot of muscle mass. Go on the higher end if you are more active or are crushing really hard work outs!
If you’re not eating nearly that much consistently, start adding about 100 calories per week, until you get up there. Each week before adding 100 more calories on, consider your body’s bio feedback like weight, pictures, energy, sleep, hunger levels, digestion, etc.
While this gives you some direction and is what a lot of the online calculators will do, it is pretty generic. When you are really dialing it in, it’s best to also consider your body type, goals, current intake, exercise program, body fat %, medical history, and general activity levels in a more robust equation.
This is why I collect so much more information than an online calculator when I start working with a client to make sure the plan is unique as you.
The devil is in the detail 😉
