I've been trying to lose weight for a while now and have recently started incorporating regular workouts into my routine. However, I'm not sure if I'm eating enough to fuel my workouts and still lose weight. I've heard that if you don't eat enough, your body can go into starvation mode and hold onto fat instead of burning it.
My goal is to lose about 10-15 pounds and I currently eat around 1400-1500 calories per day. I typically do about 45 minutes of cardio and some light strength training 4-5 times a week.
Can anyone give me some insight on how to properly fuel my workouts while also losing weight? Is there a specific calorie range I should aim for and what types of foods should I be eating?
Thanks in advance for your help!
