Yes, your body needs those rest weeks to heal and recover, so don't feel bad about taking them. You will only come back stronger! Just use this as a time to get some fun other activities in...

As far as your intake, I would just play it by ear. If you are simply less hungry because you are not lifting, then it's fine to cut back a bit. if you are hungry, then just stay where you are.


Hahaha!!! Great! I am glad to hear that you agree with this suggestion!
Thanks for the advices Anitra!
So lucky to have you nearbyHeart

RE: A noob in the forum
Hello everybody!!!
It's been two months now that I haven't any contact with you....In that period of time lot's of things happened in my life and I was too frustrated to concern about the gym or the diet.

However now everything seems to be better and finally I did a membership in a new gym (I live in a new city now...)
Anyway, I started again my old weight lifting program and I'll follow it until my body used to weights again.
My diet is the biggest problem for now....I try to maintain 2000 cals but i can hardly afford it. I lost my job and it's a nightmare to find a new one (Greece you see....). I am always looking for the best bids in the super-markets but still....the expenses are too many.
I'll try to do my best for now....For one more month I 'll keep on 2000 cals and then I will consider to lower my calories. I would like to increse them a little bit more but I will not afford it.

RE: A noob in the forum
well....
some weeks have already passed....
I love that I go back to the gym!!! I feel much better now both physicaly and psychologicaly, although I have not found a job yet... Undecided
I was on 2000 cals those weeks but at the end of the day I was hungry like crazy....Maybe I am too active for those cals...I will make an up to 2100 cals from now on. Also I consider to up those cals at least to 2300 that is my calculated TDEE...What the hell ...few more cals won't make me poorer...
The bad news is that , through the time I was away from gym and the calculation of my calories, I gained some centimetres in my hips and that pissed me off.....I try really hard not to think about it....but it's unfair because I made the most of the trip of upping the cals without any gaining and the previous two months were an dissaster for my body and my psychology too...
Anyway....

My macros right now are: 175gr Protein, 175 gr Carbs, 70 gr Fats
I think that my protein intake is already high enough for my kilos (66kilos) and I am not sure how I should incorporate the new cals from now on....
My question is.... How would be more appropriate to up my cals? Should I up only the fats by 100 cals? Only the carbs? Or I should distribute the 100 cals to all the macros?

RE: A noob in the forum
If you keep your macros at the same percentages they will be distributed correctly. 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% fat. Just keep those the same.

RE: A noob in the forum
Today I started a strength programm.
It has 2 days for upper body and 2 for lower body per week.
It lasts for 4 months and comprises 4 different phases.
The first one is "the foundation".
I desided to do something different from the classic bodybuilding split of 12 reps, so I will be able to add some strenght mainly in my upper body that is more week.
For these 4 months I'll do my calories maintenance too. I 'll keep the 2100 cals /day for this period of time and then , if everything goes according to plan, I'll begin my healthy journey to weight loss.
