Forgive me if this is posted somewhere else on this board, but I have a question about the calorie range Sparkpeople set for you based on your pounds-per-week goal you set.
Mine is set for a goal of 1lb/wk. I factored in NO exercise since it adjusts itself when you do workout, and so my range is 1440 - 1790. Well, that's a 350 calories difference. If I ate 1790 every day, I'm still within my calorie range but at the end of the week, I'd eat 2,450 more than if I ate at the low end every day. That's almost a lb difference right there.
So is the calorie range figured so that you can eat at the high end every day and STILL hit your "lbs/wk lost" goal, or is it figured so that you need to be as in the middle of your range as possible to lose your goal (or offset a higher day with a lower one)?
It's not been an issue, I just got thinking about it and now I can't stop obsessing about it. LOL
