My best advice as a non-professional is to not focus crazily on calories. Yes, it is important to have a rough idea of how many calories you are eating, but it should not be a priority. You should focus mainly on eating the right foods. It’s actually extremely filling (for us folks with big appetites) to eat healthier foods in larger portions. For example 100 calories of fresh broccoli is two large stalks, while 100 calories of fries is like ...8 fries lmao. I recommend creating a 500 calorie deficit instead of 750, solely because it’s easier to obtain, and you’re more likely to stick with it. Continue exercising, but again focus less on calories and more on what’s going in! Vegetables and Fruits should be the main thing, while including small portions of meat and starches. Best of luck!
