Please check out this article, do the math and let me know what you think. I did the math, I seem to be in the right ballpark but it isn't working like they say it should. Is it possible that I have messed up my body that badly? Is there a test for that? This article is noted on a blog that I follow. It is a spark person but I do not know who it is. Here is the link:

copy and paste it. My number is 2537.325 to MAINTAIN my weight. I regularly eat between 1500-1700 calories per day and get 60 minutes of exercise 5 days a week of cardio and strength combined. I really want to hear your opinions......do you fit this model?

And, he says to know the approx. cal. you need , put a zero after your present weight.

Mine is 250 , so I should need 2500 cal. per day to maintain. that seems to work out about right for me. As a person loses weight, they need fewer cal.

If I weighed 150, I guess I'd need about 1500 cal. per day to maintain.

This is very rough, but it does give a pretty good picture in my mind. Does that make sense? chris
