Today’s workout: DDPYOGA “Energy” session (mostly unmodified), quick stroll on the treadmill, and some light weight training (arms) for a total calorie burn of several hundred calories.
Like any machine or engine, your body takes a certain amount of fuel to do its job. One of the things I see a lot of people do when they’re trying to lose weight (I’m VERY guilty of this), is to crush a workout like this and then restrict their caloric intake for the rest of the day in the name of huge calorie deficits.
Your body still needs fuel to push you through the day.
As a food addict, workouts like these are a dream.. not because I can maintain a massive deficit for the day, but because it means I get to eat more.
If I try to maintain, say a 2500 calorie a day diet (spoiler alert: I don’t actually count calories… this is for demonstrative purposes) and I crush a thousand calorie workout, I COULD take the aggressive deficit OR I could eat another 500-750 calories of good, clean, whole foods AND still rock a 250-500 calorie deficit for the day!
This helps to keep me on track throughout the rest of the week. I find that when I strive for huge deficits, I last a few days before I go insane (because I’m using a ton of fuel and not replacing it) and go off the rails.
I’m no doctor, nutritionist, or health or guru or nothin’ so take that for what it’s worth. Just something to stew on.
Love you guys! – S
