Whats the correct calorie intake for Les Mills Body Combat?
Hi guys, quick question, in the first week it states that you take between 1200, 1500 i think or 2100 calories, is this right?

My aim is not to lose weight as I weigh 11 stone and 6 lbs, Ive completed insanity and p90x2 and I'm starting les mills ultimate warrior combat January 2nd 2013 but my aim is to bring out my 5th & 6th ab muscles to gain the 6 pack and lean upper body i require.


Do i stick with the 2700 calories I was taking in while doing P90X2 or do I change it for body combat?

At the moment i have a 4 pack and im also training twice a week at the gym for lean upper muscle so surely i would require to take in 2700 calories, any ideas?


Thanks.

Dan

Your calorie goal is dependent on your body's needs and how rigorous the workout are. For more intense workouts where you burn a lot of fuel you will need to eat more. For less intense workouts, well the opposite applies.

With that said most Beachbody programs start you out with a "fat shredder" phase so to speak and ramp up the calories as you progress. Since you already have a fitness base that shouldn't be necessary. You basically just need to make sure you continue eating healthy and fuel your body appropriately for the workouts.
