Fiddling with ranges...
Wednesday, July 24, 2013
My initial activity level/weight loss goal put my calorie range in the bare-minimum bracket: 1200-1550. This is easily doable! But then my fitness goals changed, and when I adjusted it on the fitness tracker, my calorie range went up. More food and still losing? So worth it!!
So then I got curious: how much more /less activity warrants a calorie-range adjustment? I tweaked the fitness goals up and down, then checked the revised (or not) nutrition goals, just to get a feel for it. I guess the new tracker does something like this automatically. This gave me a new perspective too, noting a lower-than-normal day of eating, or even going over range a little, isn't such a big deal. In the long run, things will even out. As long as my efforts are consistent!!
