 BMR 1491 - Avg daily exercise burn 350/day (JUMP START-RESULTS?)

Sunday, October 23, 2011

BMR 1491 lightly active (5'4", 53yrs, 182lbs)
If I want to lose a pound a week I need a deficit of 3500/wk.
How to get there? And does this sound right or wrong to you wise Sparkfriend comrades?

*Eating 1491 daily means wt loss has to be ALL exercise
*3500/ 350 means 10 days of exercise for every pound

*OR REDUCE INTAKE TO 1200/day means
290 credit per day x 7 = 2030 wk
With additional 1500/week needed from exercise 1500/350 =
DEFICIT OF 3500/week = 1 LB

***I need a burn of 375 per session with minimum of 4 sessions per week to make 1500/wk
375 x 4 = 1500

plus

***I need to eat LESS 1205 calories a day to make deficit of 2000/wk
***1491 minus 286 means a calorie intake of 1205/calories day

Calorie Allotment 1205/day
Breakfast 350
Lunch 330
Dinner 350
1030
Leaves 165 for snacks

Right? Wrong? Jiggle it? Let me know if this makes sense for a JumpStart
FIRE IT UP or CRAZYTALK?

 BIGMAMAT 10/26/2011 12:33AM I am with mama on this. I would simply die(ok, being dramatic...) on 1200 calories. seems a little low. All your calculations look right. 4 days of exercise a week seems doable. Do you know how much you burn an exercise session? What sparkpeople says and what my arm band thingy says are two different things as far as what my body burns. All I know to do is try it. Change it up and see if it works.

 MAMADWARF 10/25/2011 9:50AM You make my brain hurt. I hate math. What does spark say your calorie range should be? 1200 sounds little lean to me. I mean I could do it on some days but not evertevertyevery day. Maybe mix it up. As for exercise, what is a sustainable amount for you? Report Inappropriate Comment
