Could use some help.
I do a lot of endurance training, swimming, running, body-weight circuits, and eat a good clean diet. However, towards the end of a training week just before my rest day I find I'm having a lot of trouble pushing myself, not due to muscle fatigue but due to feeling really weak. I'm worried I might not be eating enough, which I know would be a problem if I let it continue. I was wondering if someone could please suggest to me, with my current stats and training schedule, the sort of calorific intake I should be looking at to lose roughly 2lbs of weight a week?
Waist: I wear 36 inch trousers.
Bodyfat percentage: I have no idea, I can see the outline of my top two abs, but it's all covered in a layer of fat that moves slightly when I walk. Muscular definition is pretty decent otherwise.
On a daily basis, I do:
4-6 miles walking at 4mph
2 miles running at 8mph
30 minutes worth of body-weight exercises, pull-ups, chin-ups, press-ups and sit-ups
20-25 minutes of circuit training- high intensity
40 minutes worth of swimming breast-stroke- low intensity, only slight out-of-breathness throughout.
If someone could give me a rough idea of the sort of calorific intake I'd need to lose 2lbs a week I'd be incredibly grateful! Even more so if you could give me an idea of how much protein I should include within that.
Thanks in advance.
