It was 17%. I would like to cut that down to 10-12% but according to the trainer, I need to eat more to loose weight. She came to a conclusion that I should eat about 3500 cal/day to loose fat. Seems very strange to me considering that 3500 is about what I ate in order to gain all the weight. Just for reference 2 years ago I was 126lbs Then I managed to get to a peak of 177lbs Now I'm down to 165lbs (for about 6 months now) Now I'm trying to cut the fat off of that 165, and have made basically no progress after just over a month of 1800 calories, and intensifying my workout (1hr lifting and 30min cardio 5/days week) So question is to all the knowledgeable nutrition guys is, is she right,(depriving the body of too much calories therefore I store fat easily) or do I need somewhere in between?
