Re: Eating to run and lose weight
You should be aiming for around 1600 calories a day for your weight and activity level in order to lose weight. That will keep you in a calorie deficit but not too far as to cause a starvation response or to make you tired. Keep in mind that content is important too. Eating a clean 1600 calories will do infinitely more good than 1600 calories of junk. Make sure that you are getting enough protein to facilitate your weight training too, which is about 1g per pound of body weight.
Keep your body lean, your blood clean and your mind sharp. -Rollins
