After quitting gym does body weight increases?
I will talk to the point without shitting unecessary things here.
If you working out and following a dirt of suppose 3000 calories comes from 60 % of carbs and 15–25% of fats and protein both each.
And now you have stopped working out ,then there are three cases.
- Stopped gym and eating same
- Stopped gym and eating less.
- Stopped gym and eating according to maintaining your weight .
In first case you will gain weight for sure even though you eat good calories.
In second You will lose weight.
In third you will maintain your weight.
How to maintain weight?
Track your calorie intake for one week and weigh yourself daily during the week. Ensure you weigh yourself in the morning each day to get an accurate reading.
Once you have completed the week, find out your average daily calories by adding each days calories up and dividing by 7.
Look at your weight over the week and see how it changes. If your weight stays relatively similar you've found your maintenance.
If your weight has an upward trend you're eating slightly above maintenance. In this situation lower your calories by a few hundred (exact magnitude will depend on how much weight you gained).
If your weight has a downward trend you are eating slightly below maintenance. In this situation lower your calories by a few hundred( exact magnitude will depend on how much weight you lost).
Once you've found your maintenance you are in a good position to create an optimal nutrition plan.
What's your maintenance calories and bodyweight? Calculate and stick to it to maintain your weight and muscle mass.
