Help with shedding and shredding...

#1 Postby RenataBrooke » Tue Apr 23, 2013 11:40 am

Hi everyone!

I'm very new to this board and thought I would try out this method to see if you all have some ideas :)

I've put on about 10 lbs since August (due to poor eating) that I'd like to release and I'm really struggling with losing it. I'm thinking I should really go down to a 1200 calorie diet but I'm still undecided. What do you think?

Current weight: 131
Body fat: 22.5-23%
Height: 5'5''

Current Diet:

Breakfast: Oatmeal with bran crisps, almond milk latte (150-200)

Snack: Apple (100)

Lunch: Tamale pie, bran crisps (200)

Snack: Raw granola bar (210)


Dinner: Veggies and soy burger (300)

Snacks throughout the day and after dinner: apples and/or banana, crisps and pesto, tofu, popcorn, carrots (500-1000 calories)


Monday: Bodypump and cycle for 20mins
Tuesday: Shoulders and cardio 45 minutes
Wednesday: Chest/triceps and cardio 45 minutes OR cycle/circuit training 60 minutes
Thursday: Back/biceps and cardio for 45 minutes OR running for 15 minutes and weightlifting class for 30 minutes
Friday: Legs
Sat: Step class and Bodypump
Sun: Rest

I'm really in need of some advice. Lately I've been averaging 1600-2000 calories a day...How many calories should I eat to get into that bikini by summer? Should I change up my workouts?

Thanks guys!
