I’m trying to lose belly fat from having children so I can have a tight toned stomach and trying to eliminate my hip dips for rounder glutes. Any recommendations on nutrition and/or workouts. I’m not big into cardio but I love weight lifting.

Dawn - I totally understand! Have you used the BMR calculator above to figure out your daily caloric needs? Once you do that, check out our Clean Eating Diet Plan Guide ( https://www.muscleandstrength.com/diet-plans/clean-eating-diet) and our Flexible Diet Guide (https://www.muscleandstrength.com/diet-plans/iifym-flexible-dieting-diet). With kids around, it can be hard to commit to a specific diet plan. Even if you can't stick to a specific plan 100%, a great rule of thumb is to stick to eating whole foods and stay away from eating processed foods. Hope this helps!

Hey Michele - plug in your data to the calculator above. That will give you your daily caloric need. A good rule of thumb is to add 250-500 calories to that number for weight gain.

Ashleigh Flood

I'm 5'5 female. Currently 136.2 pounds. Trying to figure out my maintaince calories to determine my calorie deficency for the week but every calculator is different. One calculator says 2044 this one says 2581.

I don't know if I'm choosing right excercise/sport level. I work out 3 days a week mostly 40-60 mins. Would I be considered light or moderate ?

Hey Ashleigh - I'd say moderate. Best to use the calcs as a starting point and monitor for yourself. Choose a starting calorie number and check your weight/bodyfat weekly. If you're gaining weight when you're trying to lose, subtract 300 calories per week till you hit your sweet spot.

Hey Kyle

Your caloric intake should be around 3000 calories/day (depending on your goals and how many days you're playing sports each week). Make sure you clicked "ft/lbs" when you entered your info, if you use the metric units and put in your standard ft/lbs it will be way off.

Hey Jodie

This tool is helpful to find a number to base your daily goals from. If your goal is to cut down then I'd suggest staying around 1900-2100 calories/day (depending on exercise schedule). Any diet will help you lose weight, as long as you remain in a caloric deficit. Here's a few options you can check out and choose which one fits you the best! https://www.muscleandstrength.com/diet-plans

Your daily calorie requirement is how many calories you need to consume to maintain your weight. If you want to loss weight subtract 500 calories from that number. Losing weight and building muscle at the same time can be difficult which is why bodybuilders go through bulking and cutting phases. I suggest losing the excess body fat then focus on adding lean muscle mass. Diet should consist of lean meats, fruits and vegetables. Protein needs to be 1 gram per pound of body weight. Hope this helps.

I'm a 59 year old female and I am trying to lose weight. I've paid for programs and had free programs and they are all so different. Right now they want me eating 1000-1200 calories. My BMR is 1812 is sedentary and 2000 if lightly active. Please help me! How much should I eat if I want to lose weight?

My wife has been eating 1200 cal a day with great results. I would try that for 2 weeks and see how that goes. if you are still gaining weight, or not losing anything after 2 weeks, add a walk to your daily routine. I would not go below 1200 cal.

when you measure your weight, do it right after you get out of bed with no clothes on. You will fluctuate up and down throughout the day so it is important you are consistent when you weigh yourself. Because your weight fluctuates from day to day, do not be discouraged by the number if it is higher, treat the number as just a data-point for your overall health.

You should gradually reduce your calories from 300 to 250 every week

Id recommend increasing your activity level. I've found that cardio helps burn calories (obviously) but it also decreases my appetite.

The best thing should do is that you decrease your normal daily intake by 500 calories (if it's 2000 then you eat 1500) for 6 days and once a week eat your normal daily number od calories.

If u want to lose weight , u can either eat less than 1000 calories or do excersize .
For example , Im trying to lose weight too . My BMR is 2200 if I do excersize everyday , so if I eat 1000 calories in one day , I will have 1200 calories left for me wothout excersize . Remember 1 kg is equal to 7700 calories . I hope this helps

Eat 500 calories less than your BMR a day, and you'll lose a pound a week. (500 calories x 7 days a week = 3500 calories, which is how many calories equal one pound)

Without any detail about you 1500 calories per day is what i recommend

A 500 caloric deficit from your BMR will cause you to lose approx 1 lb a week. A rule of thumb is 3500 ≈ 1 lb of fat. The easiest way to lose is through consistent eating habits I wouldn’t go lower than consuming 1200 calories a day, but if you want to be in a greater deficit then you must burn calories. Good luck I hope this helped.

Try 1500 but weigh your foods and be really strict for a few weeks to really see what you are eating.
