For most people just trying to lose fat I recommend against a lot of physical activity because it greatly increases appetite. Up to you though.

But yea longer NBPEL is always better :)

I am doing this during 2nd lockdown. 1500 calories a day. Started at 14 Stone 2 lbs and now 13 stone 9lbs so going in the right direction. BPEL is 7 inch NBPEL is 6 inch so plenty of motivation.
