My 2,400 Calorie Diet
By the time I reached Phase 2, I was pretty happy with my weight-loss (-13.5 pounds in 30 days). Therefore, I was concerned about changing up the ratios that had been working so well for me. After some research, I decided to keep the same "50/30/20" ratios I had been using, but add approximately 400 calories or so to my daily caloric intake. My intent for keeping the same ratios was obviously to continue the same rate of fat loss and weight loss I was experiencing. However, because I was becoming more and more fit, I needed some extra "fuel" to continue putting increased effort into the workouts – hence the extra calories.
