You’ve decided to take on Shaun T and INSANITY. Yes, you are crazy. I mean that in a good way of course. But now what? The nutrition guide can be confusing. How many calories should you consume daily? You will be burning up way more calories than normal once you start INSANITY. Make sure you have a good plan for success. Check out The Fit Club Network’s resources to help break it down in easy to understand terms. http://www.thefitclubnetwork.com/2012/02/insanity-elite-nutrition-guide. They also have some great videos to visually show you how simple it really can be to make the recipes.
It’s been a while since I logged my food with myfitnesspal.com. Since I started a new hybrid program I thought it was time to do some logging and calculations.
First my goal: gain muscle mass and not lose any weight.
According to the INSANITY caloric needs calculator:
1.) 66 + (6.23 x weight in pounds) +(12.7 x height in inches) – (6.8 x age in years). 66 + (1059.1) + (914.4) – 265.2 = 1,774.3 calories needed without exercise
2.) I am using the very active factor of 1.7. 1774.3 x 1.7 = 3,016.31!
3.) Use the number in 2 for your daily intake unless you want to lose or gain. If i want to gain, I would need to add 250 – 300 a day. Wow!
