Great Thread -

A question - I am hoping I messed something up. If I weigh 257 pounds and I am a little over 5'8" and 33 years old. The BMR comes out to 1937.45. I put in sedentary (I work in an office, figure any excercise I get in as a bonus). Then apply the Harris Benedict formula to that and it gives me 2324.94. (convert to 16275 calories a week, then make the deficit of 7000 to lose 2 pounds a week, and I have 9275) So to lose 2 pounds a week I would have to average 1325 calories a day? Please tell me I messed something up?


Onederland by the 4th of July - my "independance day"

Changing my life.
