Since I had to abandon my Elimination Diet experiment for a while (due to confounding medication changes), I'm starting another non-pain related experiment. Using the Calorie Differential Over Time Chart and compairing it to the graph of my weight loss in the same time periods, I noticed I lost the most weight when I was averaging around 1500 calories per day and exercising about 1500 calories per week -- 1500/1500 -- easy to remember! The medication I'm on changes my metabolism and/or makes me retain a lot of water, so I've found it hard to figure out where I should be in the calorie/day range Spark gives, since it doesn't take into account my turtle-y metabolism.
So, I'm going to try and shoot for 1500/1500 the next couple of weeks and see what happens!
Question for the group: How do *you* use Sparks charts and graphs?
