I’d eat 1200 – 1300 everyday except for 1 day which should be your cheat day. The problem with limiting calories all the time is that your body gets too efficient at getting by with lowered calories. The more you lower, the more efficient it gets. So with a cheat day, you substantially increase your calories which confuses your system to the point where it not only won’t work to keep getting super efficient, it actually won’t process all the calories you take in that day. Let me put this in perspective, I normally eat between 1500 – 1600 calories a day except for my cheat day where I’ll easily eat over 3,000 calories a day. I eat anything I want on cheat day.
As for following the 40/40/20 ratio at each meal, you don’t have to be that precise, consider it a daily target. What you do want to do is eat more of your carbs before 5pm.
