So this week I'm really working on meal planning and staying within the calorie budget. So I know I calculate my bmr and try to get 3500 or 7000 calories off of that in a week, to lose one or more pounds.
So that puts me at 2543.34 cals a day with the 1.2 slightly active
For a 2lb deficit in a week I should only consume 1543.34 cal a day.
But fitday says I should eat 1684
And spart people said I should eat between 1550-1900 calories.
I put the same goals in at each pleace to go from 301 to 175 by Oct 10, 2010.
Now I think I have too much information.
Yesterday I worked out at the gym. I had a apple and a yogurt for snack before my workout and after my workout I had my lunch big salad with chicken and I still seemed so hungry after even though i was very filled up. it was strand, I was wondering if it was afterburn but my workout was only 35 minutes of cardio and heavy weights.
I had a good day and last night my calories were only at about 1474 and didn't make a good choice for a snack, I had toast with pb, for 300 calories, so I should have only done one toast or something else.
All week my number hasn't change much at all, I've been at 301.4 or .6 all week, not change though this morning it teased me at 299.9 before going back up.
I'm really trying to balance what I'm eating and getting all my food groups in, so I feel like I'm doing okay but I'm confused on the calorie budget so I'm sticking to the spark peopel one for now.
