I just started ww (2nd time around) about 2 weeks ago.
I never looked into counting calories before until today.
I calculated everything on an online calculator and it said in order for me to lose weight based on everything, my daily calorie target was 1820.
btw im 29 y/o f, 5'2, 130lbs, moderately active
and would like to lose 15-20 pounds.
WW gives me a total of 18 total daily points.
When i calculated how many calories I ate yesterday (I ate all 18 points), it showed my calorie intake to be 825 calories!
I am now confused as to why it is so low and how it reached my tdp of 18.
I must admit I am hungry a lot of the time since going back on ww, but I am just following my target daily points (I also use my 35 flex points).
I thought if you count calories, you'd be eating less calories than on the weight watchers plan, but it turns out it wants me to eat at least 1800?
I hope I made sense, I probably didn't but if anyone could make out what I'm trying to say, please clarify for me.
Thank you in advance for any comments
