Hey ladies...I've recently joined at thedailyplate.com. Their formula says I should eat 1800 calories for a 1-2 lb/week weight loss. So when I log in my exercise it adds those calories burned to calories I could eat....and it jumps up to above slightly 2000 calories for the day. Is that how you calorie counters handle exercise? OR, do you figure you're eating 1800 calories a day and you will not increase that just because you exercise? I've only been back on the wagon since January and while I've lost about 13 pounds it seems I've hit a lull and I've gone up a pound over the past couple of days. I know it could be due to a multitude of things, including water retention, etc...but since I'm new to keeping track I'm not sure how my weight fluctuates during the month. Mainly, though, I'm just concerned that I'm eating too many calories with the exercise. Comments or suggestions?
