    Hey, just wanted to know something… I’m 5′ 5″, and weighs 9st 10lb. My job i office bound and I sit still most of the time at work, but I work out 4 times a week (kettlebells and running). Seeing as I train, I realize I won’t necessarily loose much weight (cause I’m gaining muscle), but I still want to loose inches/fat. Is this app still for me? I use an easy low carb diet, allowing me to eat up to 150 grams of carbs every day. If I choose this type of diet in the app, it will only allow me to eat 80 grams of carbs every day. My wish is that I can set my goals here manually. I’m also wondering about how many calories I’m allowed to eat. A nutrion expert told me that I need about 136 grams of protein not to loose muscle mass. He also told me that seeing as I train (hard) for one hour four times a week, I will need 1672 calories to loose weight in a healthy way. That’s almost 400 more calories than your app recommends. Why is this?
