Subject: how many calories?

I have a base of 1,200 calories & if I workout and burn 900 should I be eating those calories to equal 2,100?  I am trying to find the best nutrition plan for getting to race weight.  I have 16 more pounds to go.  Would like to know what has worked for people.

I would honestly say to be in as small of a deficit as you can to reach your goal. Training takes fuel, and holding this back from your body may hold back recovery and adaptation to your workouts.

If you are going through 2100-2500 calories a day, I would recommend eating at least 1500-2000.

Yes.  Taking in no extra will lead you to crash.  Replacing everything you burn will lead you to no weight loss/gain.  Also FWIW, I find it way easier to lose that last few with weight training rather than tri-training.  And even if the number drop the same - I look better/more tones/less jiggly on weights.

I am a light fella..~63kg. Saw a nutriotionist last month when I was ~64kg and looking to shed some mid-rift blubber.

I am a veggo and my main intake is carbs...

The nutritionist has got me to cut back carbs and to be honest..though I have shed a kg or two....i generally feel very low and tired....

Not sure if this is just an adjustment period or if I my intake is too low for 8-10 hours of training a week...

or if i should give up trying to unearth the six-pack in my late 40's!
