Hi everyone, I'd like to know how to be consistent. Something I really want to do is make gradual changes and make them permanent as well. Don't like admitting it, but I get depressed easily and stressed out from college often, and I end up not staying motivated.. I want to change it.
Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.
I get tired after exercise, but I haven't seen that much improvement, and recently I even lost a few pounds from not eating enough.. :/ I'm confused about how to exercise I guess..
Hi, I'd like to gain some muscle. I used to be able to do it when I was younger, but nowadays I can't seem to
Nonworkout Days: 18 calories per pound of bodyweight, 7 meals per day.
Workout Days: 20 calories per pound of bodyweight, 9 meals per day -- including pre- and post-workout nutrition.
Of course, not all calories are created equal! Check the graphic to see the calories per gram of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Use the calculator below to see how many calories you should be eating, as well as how many grams of each macronutrient, on both workout and non-workout days.CALORIES FROM FOOD SOURCES
1 gram of fat = 9 calories
1 gram of protein = 4 calories
1 gram of carbohydrates = 4 calories
1 gram of alcohol = 7 calories
Wow, thanks for all the advice ^__^
You're totally right, I haven't been eating enough; I'll try to come up with 7-9 meals for workout and non workout days.
Do you have a quick way of understanding how many grams of food you eat in a day? (I'm completely unaware)
I'm sorry to hear you're struggling sometimes! It can't be easy to spend so much time at college/studying, then still needing to find time to do some exercise. Scotty has given you some great advice already! A good diet will definitely help make you feel better physically. Mentally it can be quite hard sometimes to get the motivation you need. I go up and down a lot and have to give myself a proper telling off sometimes. However, when I get down, I try to put some music on which know gets me back up. Even if just for a little while. Perhaps you should try have a think about which songs give you a boost? There are some out there which will get your heart beating that little bit faster, I'm sure.
Aside from that, try do some short exercises at the same time every day or every couple of days. Just 3 minutes even! Something to get your blood flowing and warm you up during these colder and darker days. Either way, if you're ever struggling, just send me a little message if you like. I know I've been away for a while but I'm back and I will do my very best to keep your spirits up.
