How old are you? 19

What’s your diet like? I have recently started trying to go totally vegan, which is pretty difficult if I’m being honest.How many calories should I eat a day? That really depends on your BMR. You should normally be eating around your BMR even when trying to lose weight if you’re active throughout the day.

Will cutting down calories make me lose weight? No it won’t. Your body needs at least the amount of calories your BMR says you require a day to work properly. If you eat less it will start going into what is called “starvation mode”, where it stores as much fat as it can to use as energy later. As soon as you eat more it will continue storing the fat due to your metabolism slowing down and not having eaten much in the days beforehand, and you’ll actually end up putting on more weight than you had lost.
What’s the 30 Day Shred? I made a page about it on my blog here
What’s your workout schedule? At the moment I go to the gym 4-5 times a week and do 30 minutes of HIIT on the treadmill, then I hit the weights. Depending on which part of the body I’m working I’ll do a different routine. Then I finish up with an ab routine.
