Hey guys. As most know, I am on a weight loss journey. So far it is going very slow, but steady. This question has been on my mind for a while now, and I have not yet found a good answer to it. So I posit it here. Do I subtract my calories burned during exercise from the total I ate for the day? As of right now, for the whole day I ate 1385 calories. That is breakfast, lunch and dinner. Then after dinner I went and worked out. Did my shoulder routine, then 45 minutes on the elliptical machine. 141 average heart rate, max 155bpm, with 620 calories burned. So the question is, do I subtract calories I burnt working out from my daily consumed total? I ask because right now I am starting to get hungry again, but I really don't want to blow it. Lost 5lbs last week. Want to keep it going. I do 4x8 squats/rows/bench on Mondays and Fridays. I do 4x8 shoulders and 45 mins cardio on Tuesday and Thursdays. I also noticed that, since I reorganized my diet(reduced intake from 2700 to around 1300-1400), and went vegan, lifting has gotten a lot harder. I still have the strength, but my endurance, the reps got harder. I failed my 4th set on the bench yesterday! (200lbs 4x8) Almost failed on my last set of shoulders today. I thought muscles stored energy? Its almost like I blew through a smaller supply really quickly. My numbers for lifts. Bench 200lbs 4x8 Shoulder press. 130lbs 4x8, squat. 250lbs 4x8. Row. 140 4x8. Now the row, the trainer advised me to start over from a light weight because my form sucked. I was not touching chest. It look more like a shitty dead lift.. It was at 200lbs, but on their advice I started over. Thanks for the help guys!
