How do I lose weight instead of building muscle???
« on: September 02, 2020, 11:47:43 PM »
Hi all, thanks for taking the time to read!! I am 5’1 and ~159 (down from 165, woo!), but I feel I’ve reached a standstill. I have been trying to eat around 1700-1900 calories a day (I admit I ate a lot this weekend on my birthday) but I feel like every time I try to lose weight, I don’t lose any weight and build muscle instead. I would consider myself to build muscle fairly easily, but I would like to lose weight. Any advice??? (Picture for ref of my body type)

Maybe spend more time on cardio less on weight lifting.
