Excellent advice. Thanks again. Here we go. Phew.

Generally 30 minutes 3 times a week will be enough, especially if you are getting in some of the bigger compound lifts like squats, deadlifts, bench presses and rows...

One last question. It took me years to build up my endurance to run 5 miles and I'm proud of it. It was a lot of hard work. Where can I put my 5 mile run now? I usually did it 3x per week but I understand this is hurting me more than helping. Maybe once a week on a Saturday perhaps?

Absolutely! If we don't do what we love, it won't be sustainable, If there is a dread factor, the same holds true... It's all about balancing your loves with the results you desire... (If you really enjoy the running, you could also do some HIIT run/walk intervals for one of your cardio workouts for even more possible benefits over the steady state cardio).

RE: TDEE - What is it and why you should not eat below your BMR
So as a rule of thumb, how much cardio should we do a week when healing our metabolism. I love to run, do spin class and recently started a class that incorporates floor weights for 20 min then 25 of interval training on treadmill. I have my calories at 1600..TDEE for 3-5 days a week moderate. Now, im afraid to workout..like I will do more harm than good?. I have lifted weights 2 x week too.

Hi Alex! Welcome to the fam! big grin

Lifting during reset is great! It actually helps to rebuild your metabolism, and intervals (if they are high intensity, short & sweet), aren't so bad either. So you'd definitely want to keep that in there. It's the excess cardio that you have to be extremely careful of during reset. Doing too much will hurt your healing. Aerobic exercise (running, spinning, etc) is actually going to tell your body to release extra cortisol, whereas anaerobic exercise (HIIT or lifting) help your central nervous system to understand how to control it.

I would recommend doing mostly anaerobic type workouts during your reset. Once you are finished healing, you can feel free to add back in some cardio as desired wink

Also...your TDEE sounds a bit low for that amount of working out? Are you already at a pretty low weight (and height?)

Here's an article from the site about cardio during resets: http://eatmore2weighless.com/metabolism-...es-cardio/

Hope that helps! happy

RE: TDEE - What is it and why you should not eat below your BMR
Hi I am Lyn

and I went into MFP change my goals
my BMR is 1570
TDEE 2433
Cut 1947

I workout 3-4 days a week do stairmaster 2-3 miles
Zumba the sauna and just recently added some weight machines

i have been doing 1500 cal per day for my goal on MFP
is it ok to eat 1500 on my 3 nonworkout days
and aim for 1900 - 2000 or more on workout days
depend on the burn if I have a high burn i want try to keep
a 500 cal deficit so my deficit always will be btw 300 and 500 cals
so what di you think will this work or should i change the goal
btw I have been doing 1500 cal just estimating and have lost 10
lbs every month since Dec. But I have added much exercise and have changed my diet drastically and believe i may need to eat more. I am doing low carb and trying incorporate more protein i do a lot of fruits veggies and fiber. What do you think???

______________________________________________

So to cut using *true* TDEE figures, you'd just eat a flat TDEE (-15%), as long as TDEE is correct. It should be fine. But if you are using MFP's calculations, or are not getting a TDEE that includes the amount you burn each day *plus* BMR, you need to eat back some exercise cals.

I make the following recommendations....Change the followiing in your MFP Goal settings under Custom:
Carbs 40%
Protein 30%
Fat 30%
Fiber 30
Sodium 2500
