Currently around 18-19% bodyfat (Down from 20)
Want to drop to 10-15%
Doing moderate exercise but diet is the main limiter here I think.
I don't want to obsessively count calories or what not.
Any suggestions on weekly meal plans, or meal planning websites I could use to cut that last few kilos?
Make your own. It doesn't require obsessive anything, just sit down every sunday and figure out what you're going to eat for the week, then buy that food at the grocery store and Bob's your uncle. Say you want to eat 2000 calories a day, buy 14000 calories worth of food with the right macro and micro nutrient profiles to fit your goals.You can't overeat if you don't buy extra food, and you can't undereat if you finish all the food you bought by the end of the week. Easy peasy.
where do you go to find out what your intake should be, what has how many calories etc?
I'm assuming there a plenty of fit people who have already done all this i can just scab their plans?
Idk, I interpreted "I don't want to obsessively count calories" as "I don't want to have to measure out every meal on a food scale". This is a practical alternative. If his goal is to get a proper diet without counting calories at all then yeah, rat poison is probbs the best option.
Not op, but I was wondering how close I should come to my daily macronutrient goals. ON mfp I'm like 100 calories short of my calorie goal, but I still have have some 10gs of protein and a few carbs left. Is getting super close but not exact okay,and am I just being an aspie or should I redo my meals?
This is a very simple question that has been answered a million times. Take the number of calories you eat to maintain weight, subtract 500. If that doesn't work, walk the number down from there. This is an answer you could have found on Google in ten seconds.
The number of calories you are currently eating, assuming you are currently maintaining weight. Yes, sometimes in life you have to work to achieve your goals and sometimes that is a bit of a drag. As I suggested, it is much easier, less time consuming, and less of a drag to do it a week at a time.
ahh makes sense.
OK so if what i normally eat is maintaining and i need to cut 500 from that,
Rather than count it all could I just count 500 worth of junk I eat a day and cut that. Pretty much counting backwards, Not super accurate but a start?
I should specify for you guys, I'm fairly fit now just wanting to shed a few Kgs, Just wanting to get a rough idea of what kind of meals to make and foods to eat.
I admire how into health you guys are and how you can eat nothing but beans and boiled chicken to become super fit.
But i just want to start the move to healthier diets.
Thanks for all the advice so far.
