I am a little curious about calories lately. Especailly since the amount of calories I am taking in should have me dropping weight like crazy. So I did some research. In order for me to maintain my current body weight I need to take in almost 2800 calories a day. My BMR is 1793. So simply by me cutting out soda and starting to exercise I should, in theory be dropping weight fast.
According to my research in order for me to lose 2 pounds a week I need to take in 1780 calories per day. Sparkpeople, as much as I love them have me taking in 1200-1500 per day. According to theit theory I should be losing weight. I found that when I was takin in more calories I was losing more weight. I am going to try something and adjust my calorie intake so that I am consuming more.
Lets see what this little experiment leads to. If I can consume more. I eat when I am hungry, until I am satisfied and most days I can barely make 1300.
I am shooting for the stars here. Wish me luck.
