    Shhhh
    So i decided to take this nutrition and exercise seriously this time. I have a strict diet and exercise plan. I keep reading some of you using Fitday to log your shit. Sounded good to me, so i joined in.

    Now I weigh 197 and want to get to 174 before NYE. Fitday says that i need to intake 1650 calories a day to meet this goal. im more concerned with adding more muscle than getting to that exact weight. Im worried that 1650 calories is insufficient to properly add muscle.

    Am i right in thinking that its not enough? Should i just ignore fitday for anything more than just logging what i eat and using it as a journal?

    Someone help a scrub out. :sadwavey: Need advice and direction.

    So you want to drop 20lbs+ fat and gain muscle at the same time? Not going to happen. Focus on one thing at a time.

    Why set New Year's Eve as your goal to hit some arbitrary number when you could look better by putting on muscle while losing fat, although being at a higher number weight?

    1600 isn't enough for a school girl to add muscle.

    consider this: if you did it by diet ALONE that's what you would have to eat. if you workout, do cardio, other workouts your caloric deficit will be high enough to lose to weight while eating a little more than that
