    Fair enough mate. I work 9 hours a day as a mechanic swinging spanners and doing a lot of work i mean i rotated 2 cars with 35" muddies today and removed and refitted a 90kg transmission and then go and work out for 2.5 hours a day.

    I leave the house at 7 am. I get home from the gym at 830. If someone could kindly help count calories out of any of my days i can supply a full accurate diary and maybe just because the calories are low doesnt mean shit. Maybe theyre all the wrong calories i dont know . Hence why asking for help if anybody else just wants to whinge about how im to inactive and dont exercise enough feel free but you'll be falling on deaf ears.


    Anyone actually wanna help and give me some guidance on some meal planning my attentions all yours.

    We can't tell you what to eat. We don't know what you like.
    40:30:30 C:P:F is a good start.
    Count the cals on My Fitness Pal. Don't start on too low cals. Maybe 3000. Weigh yourself once per week. Adjust cals up or down as necessary aiming at around 1kg or slightly less of weight loss per week.

    I work 14 hours a day as a dairy farmer and I managed to slip into low activity days. Not because I was being lazy, infact just getting more efficient. My steps on my iPhone per week had halved and I was doing just as much if not more work. That included lifting weights every day. Most jobs even physical ones are not that physical anymore.

    Fair call mate that would have been a confusing one to work out. Ive been researching step and calorie counters. I havent found anything thats theirs no innacuracy when worn on the ankle yet. I'm not allowed to wear a watch at work and the phones are toolbox only so i can't do one of the android pocket step counting things. I think one would really help me with the working out calories burnt to counter act the diet but all the fitbits aren't reccomended on your ankle because it exagerates the calories burnt and well, no use having a gauge that reads wrong is there.

    I'm not using it for any perfect accuracy. It's just my phone in my pocket but it gives a reasonable picture of what's going on activity wise even if it's not perfectly accurate.

    Ensure you're being accurate/honest with portion sizes as it's easy to under estimate. Weigh and log shit for a week if you have to.

    If 2000 is maintenance and you're hitting that regularly, then you're not going to drop weight. Originally you said you were averaging 1300-1700, that's a pretty big range. It sounds to me like you just need to be more consistent.

    I wouldn't believe the machine when it says you burnt 700cals in half an hour. It's probably more like 1/3 that amount. If you're taking that in to account and still eating 2000 cals, you may be as high as 2700 or something and well above maintenance, hence the weight gain.

    Get back to basics. Eat consistently and log accurately for a week. Aim for ~2000/day not accounting for cardio and see what happens.

    Don't actually worry about what you exactly burn. Is a bit of a guide but not worth focusing on.

    Get your intakes accurate. Weigh your food and log calories. Start at around 2000. Give it two weeks minimum. If you don't lose weight drop 200 calories and give it another 2 or 3 weeks. If you lose more than half a kg up it by 200. Repeat until you hit your goal weight.

    Sorry hectic weekend . Will start this fortnight by measuring n weighing individual ingredients for each meal and see how it goes.

    1400-1700 had been about average and its a bit of a difference as until a fortnight or so again had never contemplated counting calories so never really knew what their was to it.

    Also the machines calories being so incorrect when i use the bpm calculators its saying around 500 calories just on my 157-162bpm average I hold over half an hour and i have bursts up to 175 bpm . I dont understand the theory on it burning a third of what its claiming if my bpm alone 90% verifies it am i missing something here?

    Todays been 2 wholemeal ham cheese tomato sandwiches and a no added sugar yoghurt struggling to eat today hopefully gym changes that after work.

    How old are you? And how are you measuring your heart rate?

    But track the cals and see exactly where you're at. A break down % of protein/carbs/fats would also be good but not essential at this point in time. Just focus on cals in/out
