I decided in January to get shredded, and I've been counting my calories since then. I getting really close to my goal, working out in the gym 5 times a week, doing HIIT 3 times, and right now I'm 73kg, 182cm and 18 yrs old. I'm eating 1800 calories a day, but I'm getting tired of counting them, so my question is, how long should I count my calories? I'm just doing the fitness to look good, and to do some sport, so nothing serious, it's my hobby, I won't compete. If I stop counting my calories, what could happen? Would I fall back? Or just watch my intake roughly?
