How many calories do you aim for a day?
I am a female in my 20s and very active (60 mins of cardio a day, strength training 3x a week, and walk at least 8K steps a day, often over 14K steps). I found that 1800-2100 is a good range for me. At the moment I am trying to get my weekly average to stay below 2000. I've constantly lost 1-3lbs a week since September. This seems a bit high, but its working and most importantly, its sustainable.
Sometimes I mess up and eat way over 2000 calories, but then I just say, ok, I'll do better tomorrow.
