    Exclamation Calorie intake frustration 🤔

    Hello guys thanks hope you’re all doing well in these circumstances 💪
    I have a question : I’ve stopped training for months and I’m willing to go back and start tracking calories/macros the minute I restart lifting .. anyway to calculate my TDEE should I use my current activity level (lightly active) or should I use my upcoming workout plan/activity ( 4 to 5 days per week of exercise).
    Thank you 😊

    If your activity changes, your intake should change to match it once the activity resumes.
    The power of carbs compels me!

    If you're going track calories, you should be doing it now as well.

    Thank you
    First, calculations are done to give you a starting point. If you use them on a continuous or ongoing basis, you're likely doing something wrong. Second, why would you use current activity level when you only intend to start tracking when you start training again?

    You’re right, Tracking calories / macros is a new thing for me so I’m not fully aware of the procedure … anyway now I think I got it. I will determine my TDEE using my activity level when I’m back to lifting.

    Thanks 😊
