My name is Natasha and I'm a certified personal trainer. In 2011, I decided to change my life. At 5'1", I went from around 200 lbs to about 120 lbs in a year and a half (give or take). Since then, I have lost even more fat, gained muscle, and maintained my healthy lifestyle. I have found a passion for fitness, nutrition, exercise and yoga and made it my career. I had a breast lift, reconstruction and augmentation in February 2014 to remove the excess skin on my breasts. Some of my other interests include Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Star Wars, Supernatural, comic books, horror flims, sci-fi movies, Smallville, LOST, cosplaying, tattoos, my dog Fozzi-bear and my boyfriend Mitch!

Are you sure that eating 1600 calories when you're exercising an hour a day (strength and cardio) will make you lose more weight (not less) than eating 1200? I want to be sure, I am scared of upping it to 1600 and gaining. TY so much!

Reply:

Positive. Basically, if your eating 1200 calories a day and then burning off 400 working out, your body isn’t getting the fuel it needs. Essentially, 1200 is the minimum that any body needs to live if you were to just lay in bed all day. Your body needs energy to workout - once again, the car metaphor. If you’re going to be burning more ‘gas’ while working out, you are gonna need to fill up more.
