AnonymousHow does it make sense to eat back all of the calories I burned by working out? Aren't I working out to burn calories and have a deficit? And then that helps me lose weight? What's the point of even working out then? I'm confused.
Say your BMR is 1500. You say, “Kewlioooo. I’m going to eat 1000 calories total, exercise, and lose all the weight.” NAH.
It doesn’t work that like. Say that you burn 500 calories during exercise & an extra 200 via miscellaneous activities. So, your TDEE is 2200 (1500+700). You need 2200 calories to maintain your weight. You’re eating 1000 though. So you’d be in a 1200 calorie deficit. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHno. That’s a bad idea. You want to end up being in a 300-500 calorie deficit of your TDEE. So, you’d want to aim for 1700-1900 calories. So yis, you’d be eating back some of your exercise calories…but let me tell you, things will work in your favor and your bod will love you even more than it already does.
This is the best way I’ve seen someone explain that omg
When you eat less than your BMR your body goes into starvation mode and stores fat instead of burning it.
1/3 cup of oats
1 ripe banana
pancakes toppings of your choice
1. Blend the eggs, oats and banana with a blender, or simply mash them in a bowl until well combined.
2. Lightly oil a frying pan and cook pancakes on low heat, flipping when there are visible bubbles on the surface.
3. Stack and top up with your favourite toppings
This is far from the traditional pancake but it is a quick and filling substitute.
