(I'm new to counting calories and tracking. So please be patient with me...
I read that in order to keep the weight I have, I should eat 2000 calories per day.
This, however, is a general average for people who are 'not very active'.
My life would be 'not very active' if I did not exercise daily, which I do: I burn an average of say, 450 - 500 calories per day through exercise.
So that means I need about 2500 calories per day to keep the weight I have?
Then, if I want to lose weight SLOWLY, would I be okay with that goal if I ate say 1800-2000 calories per day?
Can someone tell me if this is sensible reasoning or not? If not, what is?
