Okay can someone please tell me what I need to do cuz all of these information is confusing. I recently signed up for gym and im excited about it but now what do I need to do, i m aware that protein helps u build muscle as well toning up. That is what im trying to do, but yet i see that I have to have calories intake about 1,200-1,300? But I can't eat that much?! I don't eat that much so how do I know what foods that im eating is healthy AND enough of calories in order to lose weight and tone up? Help????? And one more thing how do I know how much calories do I need to burn?

Hi Kekilei, and welcome to gymrats.


It sounds like your fitness goals are to tone up and lose weight.

It's interesting the different studies there are about replenishing your body after a workout which adds to the confusion.
