(2) I am seriously considering dropping cardio, currently I work out very high intensity intervals, sprinting and slowing down on treadmill. Usually work out about 700 calories in 60 minutes (my daily net goal is 1500, eat 2200, burn 700 on cardio + lift weights as well). Taking your advice I am going to drop this to low-intensity walking 30-60mins. When you say “low-intensity” how low?
As in what speed and incline would you recommend? Or in terms of heart rate, how much of a target heart rate should I go on?
My 60%-80% HR range is 117-156. And usually if I walk at 3mph at 2% incline I burn ~490cal an hour. Is this considered “low intensity” walking?
Without going into ad nauseum do everything right. I am a thyroid hasimoto pt....69. Good energy. 5'8, Weigh 180 I hate it. It won't budge. On right dose. All labs right down the middle very healthy, even have cholesterol under 200 with high good cholesterol..my nutrition is perfect . I LOSE ANYTHING-even if I reduce calories then I am cutting out nutrition cause I don't eat ANYTHING WRONG to cut out!!!! no sugar lo good carbs, blah blah blah . I am so angry I can't stand it nothing works. I have insomnia if I don't have enough protein during the day and often have to eat egg whites at night to get back to sleep cause I eat so little during day. I am going nuts. Help! I have a public job with a nonprofit art programs and need to look nice. Having this 20 lbs is depressing and feel hopeless. I have to haul equipment..Everyone else loses 5 easy I CANT LOSE 1 no matter what I do.
