Here are the two conditioning workouts that you will do after our Tuesday and Friday sessions. They will be short and sweet!

Here’s your nutrition breakdown. First, your total calories right now are 1,580. This is based off of the highest number you gave me (for example, if you said 2-4 eggs, I added 4 eggs). I said that we will decrease calories so that you continue losing body fat, but we may increase them because your total is pretty low for your activity level. And by increasing them you won’t gain fat weight, probably lean mass weight, but increasing the right calories will increase your metabolism (mainly protein). And increasing calories will increase the G-flux, so you increase calories and that increases energy expenditure during your work outs.
Your macronutrients came out as:
Protein: 210g, 840 kcal
Carbs: 160g, 640 kcal
Fat: 90g, 810 kcal
Your fat, right now, is right where it should be. Your carbs are a little low for your activity level so I raised those a little bit. And your protein is too low for your activity level. Increasing your protein will help with recovery and fat burning.
Now that you know how many calories to eat, you can divide your macronutrients into your meals (to make it most convenient for you).
A few tips for you to consider:
- Eat less fruit. Fruit is good for you, but too much can be hard for fat loss because fructose can cause insulin resistance. Try to eat no more than 2 servings per day. Instead, throw in more veggies, especially leafy greens. You can replace some of those fruit carbs with sweet potatoes or yams, it’ll give you a more sustained energy level.
- Protein should be consumed pre and post work out. Shakes are good for this because they are fast and easy, but whole foods can be consumed too. Try to aim for 40g pre and post exercise. This will be good for energy, focus, and recovery.
- Eat whole foods in the morning. You can still drink your coffee with coconut oil in it, but think about adding in 3-4 eggs in the morning for breakfast. Add some leafy greens to those eggs for your micronutrients.
- Consider using myfitnesspal on your computer or phone to track your calories/food. This helps keep you on track with nutrition so you know how many calories and macros you are eating. You don’t have to do it every day but it’s good to do a couple times per week so that you can stay on track.
- Because your carbs are already pretty low, you don’t have to change your calories for non work out days. You can stick to the goal of 2.290 kcal per day for all days.
I believe you’ll feel a lot better with the added protein. Give this a go for a few weeks and we’ll adjust from there!
