Calorie Intake Now vs V-Diet


#1

I’m 19 yrs old and I’m about 5’10" and I’m a female. Right now I eat about 1300-1600 calories a day depending if I workout or not. The V-Diet calculated that I would eat around 1800 calories on workout days and 1400 calories on non-workout days.

I’m just afraid that I will gain weight on this diet because I’m currently not eating that much as it is. I would greatly appreciate some thoughts on this matter. Thanks!

Sometimes, stagnation in fat loss is caused by eating too little. The metabolism drops.

Also, the V-Diet is high protein, which makes you burn more calories than eating a different macronutrient mix. So it’s not all about the calories but the ratios of protein/carbs/fat.

However, there is some room for personalization. I allow people to drop a scoop of protein a day if they feel they need to. (Not every day, but 1 scoop total for their plan.)
