I continue to learn things about dieting.
RESTING METABOLIC RATE (RMR) accounts for the larg-
est component (60-75%) of total daily energy expendi-
ture (13) and therefore plays a significant role in the regu-
lation of energy balance.
be careful reducing your food calorie input below your RMR.
My RMR is 1500 cals according to a Web calculator.
I am currently losing 2.4 lbs/wk (3500 cals/lb of fat, assuming I'm not losing muscle mass) but over the longer term I am losing 1 lb/wk so in principle I can stay on this regime.
Post whatever days/weight data you have; I might be able to pull some conclusions out of it using Excel's data reduction functions.
I'm tired too.
Our bodies are like food-fueled machines and they obey the laws of physics. Those laws will not change despite our wishes.
