I don't know if I have this right. And its freaking me out a bit.
Right now I'm 232 lbs and have a limit of 1600 cals a day. Sometimes I hit that number, majority of the time I'm under to some degree.
My question is, when I'm say, 200 lbs, to lose 2 pounds per week, with moderate exercise, according to my BMR calculator to maintain that weight I'd eat 2698 calories a day. So to lose 2 pounds a week (-1000), I'd be eating 1600 cals a day. Now this is where I'm confused.
I've decided to eat 1600 cals a day because that's what I feel takes me to get full and not have any weird side effects. LoseIt! came up with 1700 cals a day, I chose 1600.
NOW, if I'm 232 and eating 1600 cals a day, and according to my BMR when I'm 200 pounds, to lose 2 pounds a week I'd be eating the same amount. That's what worries me. Will I still lose 2 pounds a week (approximately, I know) even though I'm eating the same amount. (I am going to be exercising I'm just excluding that right now as that won't change). Or will I need to cut back THEN.
I don't know if anyone will understand that. I think I just confused myself.
