Admittedly, math has NEVER been my strongest subject. Unless, it's the simplest of simple math OR I have a calculator, I'm SOL. However, it didn't take much of a math whiz to figure out that, somewhere along the way, I'm going to be in big trouble now that I'm trying to maintain my current weight. Here's the story:
My weekly (maximum) intake of calories is (7*2110) 14,770
My daily BMR is 1557 (approximately) and that burns 10,889 calories weekly
At this point, I'm taking in 3,871 calories per week more than my body naturally burns. HOWEVER, I like to exercise and, on average, burn about 3,100 calories a week. Unfortunately, that still leaves 771 calories left to run amok. Bottom line is, every five weeks(ish), I can expect to GAIN a pound.
Not good. Not good at all.
It's also not how things have been going in the real world. Now that I've got all this off my chest, I think I'll just forget about the math and enjoy the level of health that I've achieved. It seems so much easier than the analyzing of numbers...
