Cutting (personal preference) on 2000 cals, 2200 on lifting days. This is 300-500 deficit according to my TDEE. Obviously it varies in accordance to your daily activities.
What I'm wondering is what would you class my exercise levels as? (Inactive, little exercise, moderate exercise, active, very active)
I work 5 days a week, pretty much labouring for a printing company. 7.5 hours a day including lunch break. Work itself is standing on your feet all day, walking around fairly often, very rarely sprinting from one end of the machine to the other (about 30 meters), occassionally lifting sub-heavy to heavy stuff for brief periods. Some days it's flat out but most days it's just standing and walking around. When I come home I'm sedentary. Just eat and watch tele. I lift at least 3 days a week, around an hour each time, doing SS, sometimes 6 times a week too from learning about babylovers approach to SS and overtraining. If I'm not tired I'll lift otherwise I'll rest.
I put in the TDEE I'm moderately active as I'm sedentary when I get home and on weekends. I know work can be active but I don't feel tired from work which is why I'm thinking its not as active as I make it out to be cause if it was an active job I'd be tired right?
I'm just asking cause I was curious about raising my calories a hundred or two each day. Weigh myself each month, going by results in the mirror and I'm seeing what I want so I know I'm in a deficit, but would just like to eat more lol ...
