    Cutting calories

    May 3, 2017, 2:41 am

    Hi guys!

    I'm currently cutting and calculated my calories I need at 2850 based on activity level etc. However, I wonder do I need to take in more calories on workout days, as I am also burning calories? Or should I stick to this number for both workout days and rest days?

    Generally you should be in a Caloric Surplus (on paper) for workout days as your likely to expend more calories than your taking in on those days. Here is a few articles for that I wrote a little while ago that contain some really good tips that may help you work towards your goal Have Abs Without Sacrificing Muscle and Lean Bulking For Beginners.

     Alright, thanks! I'll be sure to check those out! Just to be clear, on workout days my calories should be just above the 2850 mark so I won't dip to low right?

    Hi guys!

    @jesse15 that number has been calculated with your activites per day in mind.. therefore I would start there and increase or decrease the number as needed. Just keep the protein high (1-1.5g protein per pound of bodyweight) and keep some heavy training in your program to help maintain muscle as well.

     

    Make sure you check out the articles @time_is_muscle linked you to as well!!
