UPDATE: July 16, 2013 I decided I wanted take back everything I have lost by my back and being overweight for the last number of years. Plus, I have an amazing life yet to live in a healthy body! Whatever your motivation is to get healthyı donıt wait another day. ıOnly 1 Lifeı Make It Count!ı I had a back injury from a horrific car accident in 2004 - my L3,4,5 were fractured and my S-1 was torn - 9 years later after being told I was not a candidate for surgery I found a savior. Dr. Etebar in Palm Desert, CA said he could help me. On February 7, 2013 I went through a 7 hour surgery where he replaced my L3, 4 & 5 discs with synthetic discs then added two, six inch titanium rods to help hold them in place. The doctors had me up and walking the next morning with a back brace and walker. I was told no blt's No bending, lifting or twisting, I couldn't even drive. After 9 weeks I was told I could start walking up to two miles with my walker and back brace. After 3 months I am still not able to do any impact until November 2013 however I am walking 4 miles a day and my Husband and I just walked a 5K in 52 Minutes. I am thrilled to have my life back. I am no longer bed ridden, I am off the pain pills and my husband and I are laughing and enjoying our lives together.

You need 1914.1 calories per day to maintain your current weight without exercise. You need 1850.3 calories per day to reach your goal weight slowly and maintain that weight without exercise. If you reduce your current caloric intake to 1414.1 calories per day you will lose one pound per week without exercise. If you increase your current caloric intake to 2414.1 calories per day, you will gain one pound per week. Exercise and Calorie Needs If you exercise for 30 minutes each day, you may increase your caloric intake to 2139.4 calories per day and still maintain your current weight. If you exercise for 60 minutes each day, you may increase your caloric intake to 2421.1 calories per day to maintain your current weight. If you exercise for 30 minutes each day, you will be able to reach your goal weight with 2068 calories per day. If you exercise for 60 minutes each day, you will be able to reach your goal weight with 2340.1 calories per day. Macronutrients The United States Department of Agriculture suggests that approximately 50 percent of your calories come from carbohydrates, about 30 percent from fats, and approximately 20 percent from protein sources. One gram of protein has about four calories, one gram of fat has about nine calories, and one gram of carbohydrate has about four calories. You need 239.3 grams of carbohydrates, 63.2 grams of fat, and 95.7 grams of protein per day for 1914.1 calories to maintain your weight of 151 pounds. You need 231.3 grams of carbohydrates, 61.1 grams of fat, and 92.5 grams of protein per day for 1850.3 calories to maintain your goal weight of 136 pounds. Please remember that these calorie counts are an average, you may need to adjust your calorie needs up or down slightly to get the results you want. Your results are calculated to help you understand how many calories you need to maintain your current weight, or the number of calories you need to lose weight slowly, over several months' time.
