4,000-5,499 SparkPoints

New Calculations

Friday, July 19, 2013

My doctor said the numbers Sparkpeople is giving me are a little off. Here's what they should be:

BMR 1577
Daily calorie goal: 1200-1300

If I want to lose 1.5 lbs per week I need to burn an additional 3,311 calories per week, which is 473/day if I work out every day, or 662.2/day if I work out 5 days.

This week I am at:
Day Calories Used Calories Eaten
S 1721 1432
M 1832 1597
T 1688 1645
W 2320 1201
R 2269 1938

Total 9830 7,813

Differential: 2013 calories = .57 lbs
