    Calorie Restriction Options?

    When i'm initially restricting my calories by 500 i'm not sure if i should still be eating more when i work out. eating more when i work out would offset things, but not totally negate the deficit i created. it would especially be a smaller offset if my deficit were much larger, like say around 1500 (the lowest i'm supposed to go?)

    my question is how do i utilize this? am i utilizing it just fine right now?

    specifically
    eat more on workout days? or eat only what I've decided i will eat regardless of workout? i know it's up to me, but i want to see if there is some sort of manipulation technique i'm not understanding.

    Using a TDEE calculator, it already factors in your activity level (workout, job type, cardio, etc).

    i have used it and i do use them. you're saying to use it again if my current routine has changed? or if my lean mass has changed?

    I'm more cardio active now.

    I'm saying your overthinking the calories - the tdee already factors in activity level so you don't need to do anything on workout days differently

    Of course if you feel better by eating more on your training days, then eat more on training days and less on non-training days. For example, When I cut 3500 calories a week (which is 500 per day), I might only cut 200 on leg day and 700 on the next non-training day.

    Just a thought.
