On Losing & Lifting Weight | Sheena’s 10 Kg Transformation

  1. A bit confused here.. So the IIFYM plan is what worked for her eventually ? On a diet of 1200 kcal? But 1200 kcal is crash dieting ! It’s too little calories for anyone other than probably a 7 year old kid !! The recommended daily calorie allowance for a woman with an active lifestyle is at least 2000 kcal. So the way I see it , she’s starving herself and definitely not giving good advice ..

    1. It’s not crash dieting. I eat breakfast, lunch, a hearty dinner and snack on fruits all day! In fact I am eating more than ever, the only thing changing is that it’s not loaded with sugar. Try tracking with MyFitnessPal and you will notice the change. I don’t use it anymore after using it for 2-3 years because I have an idea now about the food I eat. I am a vegetarian and From being a picky eater, I have started actually eating awesome helpings of veggies and fruits. I eat a lot of chocolates and desserts too! I also work out very similarly to her and I see a difference in my body. 15 min cardio and weights. From being a girl who couldn’t run for a minute, I do 5K runs, bike challenges, the best hike trails in US.

      1. Ohh also, 1200 Calories depends on lifestyle. For sedentary office jobs/IT etc,, 1200-1400 is okay. If you are a salesperson, or are super active, the number obviously goes up. I am a mechanical engineer who gets on the field a bit so I eat accordingly. And I NEVER starve myself. I love food and eating out too much. It’s almost a hobby. 😉

    2. 1200 is way too low, especially if you’re working out. Right now, I’m at a drastic cutting phase and I use IIFYM (log everything in myfitnesspal) and I’m still eating 1400(mind you this is for extreme fat loss), sometimes I eat 1600-1800 depending on my hunger levels and I’m a vegetarian, so I eat lots of vegetables on a daily basis. There’s actually no way IIFYM could’ve suggested to eat 1200calories.

      1. Aah, interesting! Maybe it depends on age, BMI, body fat % too? When I tested IIFYM now and some other programs few years back, they all mostly suggested me to eat 1200-1400 calories. IIFYM actually suggested 1400 in normal course and 1200 if I want to cut fat.
        Thanks for sharing.
