I know Spark People says use the Daily Calorie Differential report "with caution" - but I get *a lot* of exercise...
I walk or ride my bike for almost all my errands (grocery, pet supply, post office, to the gym, office supply, etc etc etc) in addition to doing the Curves circuit 5 - 6 days per week, a variety of Spark People exercise videos, and swimming 4 - 6 days per week when the weather is warm enough.
I'm hesitant to "up" my predicted amount of calories burned every week (which would then "up" the amount of calories I'm supposed to eat) because I tend to go over by 200 or 300 calories per day as it is.
Still, when I look at the "Daily Calorie Differential Report" my calorie differential probably averages around 400 calories per day. (In other words I burn up 400 more calories than I eat)
I've only been tracking my nutrition for about three weeks now (I promised myself a "scale vacation" for the first month) - but I think as long as I burn more calories than I take in, and do this consistently, I should see fat loss, yes?
Thank you in advance to anyone who responds! :)
Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
