Today after a cardio class (BodyCombat) i rushed home and had a bowl (3/4 cup) of NO SUGAR ADDED vanilla ice cream. I was thinking "ok good, some protein, some carbs" it wasnt till after i ate it i realized/remembered that there some fat in there, and not that much protein. I added 7 grams (a rounded tablespoon) of almonds.
So i know (i think?) that that was too much fat for after workout (slows protein/carb consumption of the body) But i wanted to know, especially since im 14, will this effect me? like i wont gain weight right? I didnt go over my daily carb/fat/protein/calorie allowance, in fact, i'm under it
So theres NO WAY i can gain weight from this, right? I mean i dont want all the carbs i ate (total of 24, daily total of 98 so far) to slow way down and cause me to like...not use them efficiently. I'm new to all this info so thats why i am so worried about it...
I have heard several times that you CANNOT gain weight without a surplus of calories, but i just wanted to be POSITIVE, that this is true?
Also, how much fat is OK for after workout? I heard 0-5 grams. Anyone agree? cause most protein/carb rich foods have SOME fat, if just a little tiny bit.
Does being a teenager add to the lessening of the chance of it effecting me?
Ok and now a few random questions, because i didnt want to make a new post (you dont have to answer them, but i really want to know)
I took a break from working out for 2 months due to illness, and then lack of motivation and fear, but i didnt gain any weight, nor am i trying to lose any (which i actually DID lose some on accident). 2 days ago, i did a short 20 min cardio sesh and then some leg exercises. Yesterday, I did Zumba for the first time, and today BodyCombat
Anyone tried BodyCombat? (it combines cardio and strength, and it focuses on combat moves)
Anyone tried zumba?
Anyone know an estimate of how much cals a 107 lb 5'4 14 year old girl would burn in any of those? (idk how to calculate it, but maybe someone knows?)
If i alternate BodyCombat and zumba every week (so like classes 4-5 times a week) and have some strength training throughout the week too, (like after zumba for 2 days, and then on my day off from classes) Is this ENOUGH to keep me healthy? I am trying to ease back into eating enough. I used to starve myself out of fear of weight gain (cause i lost weight before)
ONE LAST QUESTION. Would even just 2-3 or even just 2 classes a week be enough JUST to help me stay fit-ish? I plan on doing it more than that, but sometimes i just dont feel up to it one week. If i eat healthy (beleive me i do, no processed junk, whole foods, whole grains ALWAYS, lots of fiber and lean protein and healthy fat. Its a lifestyle ive adopted for 5 years now) and dont go over my calorie allowance, and exercise 2-3 times a week or more, i'm good to go right?
Just to wrap all this babbling nonsense up
, i ask all these questions because I was on a rollercoaster of overweight/super unhealthy to weight loss/insane working out, to underweight and barely moving, and now im trying to work my way up to the right amount of calories, and exercise, so i hope you'll understand my trillions of questions!
