Ive lost about 5 stone and started running again, however the charts i use tell me i need "X" amount of calories if i run "X" amount and i will lose "X" amount of weight...i often dont eat as many calories as im allowed , and im putting on weight , my measurements stay the same if anything the odd inch has come off my body but i weigh about 7 or 8 pounds more....can i assume that this is added muscle?
I run 90% of the time 6 days a week with 3 to 4 10 mile runs filling in between with 3 or 5 milers and i never seem to eat morethan 1900 to 2000 calories. Im female and 58,.
Any advice gratefully recieved as i am in dread of putting the weight back on but i know i cant run on 1200 calories i just dont seem to have the energy if i try it for long.
