Came across this Ideal Weight Calculator that gives one the idea of what your ideal weight for your gender and height should be.
It is at http://walking.about.com/cs/calories/l/blc
I am 6'3" according to the Ideal Weight Calculator my ideal weight should be 196. My weight has not budge below 206 in about 6 months on a consistent basis. Even with all the workout I do. I may be at that plateau stage i.e I am maintaining but not losing weight.
The rule of thumb is less calories in then calories burned.
Honestly I am not too keen on Sparkspeople diet tracker. It just seems too labor intenstive (call it lazy) for me to input all kinds of data on an item.
Anyone aware of a better way to track your calorie input or give me some idea of pointers within sparkspeople that makes it easier to input calories eaten?
