Many of us are fairly savvy when it comes to adjusting our nutrition in order to create change in our body weight. We know what it should “feel like” to be gaining or losing weight. However, when it comes to maintaining a particular body weight, many athletes aren’t as familiar with the process.
In today’s episode, Eric, Brad, and Andrea discuss maintenance calorie intake — the amount on calories (i.e. energy) you need to consume in order to maintain your current body weight. The coaches cover methods for how to determine your maintenance calorie intake, why it is a moving target, the value of tracking, and more.
Join us this week to hear all about programming for the goal of maintaining your body weight, and how the methods for doing so can change based on your experience level.
