Q1: I run marathons. The day I run a marathon I burn 2500 calories to easy. How much of that should I be eating?
Q2: I keep getting this warning message from spark people on my activity page:
*The number of calories you should eat to manage your weight depends on many factors, including how many calories you burn through exercise. It may seem counterintuitive, but eating too little while burning too much can actually hurt your weight-management goals and the outcome of your fitness program. If you are consistently burning more calories than recommended here, please update your fitness settings as soon as possible. This may adjust your calorie ranges (if necessary) so you can reach your goals in a timely and healthy manner.
How do I know how much I need to eat. I seem to always have this problem. Eating too little and working out too much. How much do I eat? I went with my BMR plus how much I was working out just like spark people said. I am 31, female and 175 pounds eating 1400-1700 calories a day and burning an average of 600 calories 5 days a week. What say you spark peps? What do i need to do?
I work out a ton because of races I do. Doing 42.4 miles in one weekend in Jan. 2013.
I'm a marathon runner, triathlete and making my dreams come true one mile and one pound at a time! ;)
