Changing Weight; Changing Nutrition Needs
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Since I went back on the Spark Program about 3 months ago I have lost about 10 pounds. I have been finding it increasingly difficult to lose another pound and even a half pound a week seems beyond reach. The Spark Plateau Busting program for today says to update my program to meet my new needs. I did that a couple of days ago and, because I am already at the bottom of the calorie range of 1200 to 1550 It didn't change. Then I went to my old diet site and it does change as your weight changes. It tells me I need to eat 1076 calories per day to lose 1 pound per week and it adds in calories as you add in your daily exercise. Because this has worked for me in the past I am going to try it again. I would still be eating over 1200 calories a day because I usually exercise for at least one hour a day and burn at least 300 or more calories that way but it changes my perspective. If I want / need to eat more, then I will exercise more. It's as simple as that. On days like Sunday when I exercise very little, I should eat a little less; make sense?
