Sounds like you’re playing dumb to get sympathy. If you did nothing for 3 hours you would burn 250-300 calories in the same timeframe. I’m sorry math is so difficult for you.
how hard do you breathe sitting still breh :patrice:

...what? 75-80 calories/ hour is pretty standard RMR for a 180 pound male. Bump it down to 200-250 over 3 hours if you want to split hairs.
from my experience its usually easier to underestimate you needs while cutting and just aim for more protein relative your caloric intake

you can always bump up in increments depending on how active you are

that said heavy cardio is secondary to weight training

What does protein intake have to do with your RMR?

how full you feel after you eat

mentally it plays a part in how you approach training

FYI I use this routine with a fasting period typically

small early-noon meal (<500 cals)

large dinner (1500-2500 cals depending on the goal)

This has nothing to do with what I was talking about. But OK.

its a big part of it in order for it to become habitual to your body

its a little thing that is trainable over time, like giving yourself a new rhythm metabolically

Again, has nothing to do with what I was saying.

I'm trying to add muscle mass while burning/losing fat.

My body fat: 12%
Weight is: 165
Height: 5'10
Age: 38

I want to cut down bodyfat to single digits. Between 6%-8% bodyfat is my goal.

Is this attainable if I eat 5-6 meals per day? The meals I eat will be clean and mostly protein (Eggs w/Oatmeal, Chicken Breasts, Lean Ground Turkey w/Rice).

I plan to workout in gym 4-5 times per week. Cardio (jog outside) 4-5 times per week.

Doubtful that you will be able to add a significant muscle while trying to also lose fat half of of your body fat percentage. I don’t want to say totally impossible but it’s pretty close.

The meals and frequency as described shouldn’t be an issue but the question is do they fit your macro targets.

6-8% BF is like elite athlete level numbers. How did you determine you are at 12%?

I doubt you can diet your way there in general and more problematic is I doubt you would be happy with the results or be able to sustain them.

Informative info in this thread thanks.
no problem

glad people still finding benefit from it

in retrospect id say to people to consider the patterns they form for themself physically and mentally

the only issue with fasting, is the behavior spills over to other walks of life

same thing with gluttony though :whew:

spiritual pursuits are great while you are cutting.
