Confused!


Wednesday, January 05, 2011

So I had intended to finally write down my rewards today. However yesterday I decided to move from Stage 2 to Stage 3 of the SparkPeole diet. Before it changed stages it asked if I wanted to update my goals - so I said yes and POOF out popped a new calorie calculation for me: between 1330 and 1680 a day.

However, it didn't ask what my activity level was, like it did the first time I set it up. So now I'm puzzled.

I'd previously figured out I have BMR of 1821.75.

So then according if I workout for at least 30 minutes a day, 7 days a week (I only selected moderately active just to be safe) I'd multiple that by 40% and add that amount to my BMR which equals 2550.75 calories a day to support my current weight. (That's a lot of calories! )

So SP currently has me set to -1000 calories a day roughly. I don't think that amount will support my activity level and will slow down my weight loss rather than help it.

But is my math right? -.- I'm not so sure anymore.

    Yea that doesn't sound right. Give it a try. If you feel like you are starving constantly or sluggish, it might be wise to change your calorie range yourself. Good luck and welcome to SparkPeople!

    Apparently, it is assuming you have lost weight and now need less calories in this Phase. I'd try it, and then u can always UP your calories to what u feel it best for ur body.
