I believe the reason why SP has your calorie range so low is b/c you have stated you want to lose 100 lbs by a certain date. Your best bet to lose healthy weight is to lose 1-2 lbs a week. And your SP can reflect that if you say your 1st goal is to lose 25 lbs in 12 weeks (or similar). Hope that helps!

I am thinking the same thing. I am going to vary the carbs but keep the calories on the low side. I am going to check out the book also, maybe on the weekend...

Maybe continue what you are doing until you get to a plateau( I don't know) ....... I skimmed through the book and it seems really informative. I will definitely go back and read it chapter for chapter. From what I gathered, the program is not a one size fit all, you tailor it to fit your specific needs. Maybe on of the experts will chime in, because advice from me, is like the blind leading the blind.
emoticon on your weightloss!!! That's great!!!

I am new to this and I like the variable idea. I have been eating low carb(40-70) & low cal (1200) for about a month and lost 16lbs.
SP suggests I eat 1200-1550 calories, and I have to fight to try to get in all the calories as I am not hungry and desparately want to continue to lose weight. HOWEVER, I want sustainable weight loss & to be healthy.
I would like to switch over to carb cycling BUT the calories are huge. Its reccomending a minimum of 1750-2000. Why is SP so low in comparison?
How do I figure out low/high carb amounts? I need to keep it simple and work into this. I was looking at BFFM (?) and its man based and looked complicated.....

I am NO expert- by ANY means- but I find this site is very helpful in finding how many cals to eat- plus it gives you a 7 day zig zag... and you can make high, medium and low carb days based on the cycle of cals you are allowed!!

I am new to Carb cycling and I am confused about my calorie intake. Well I calculated my BMR so my cals should be 1908. That seemed too high. I decided to do 1300 with a 45-30-25 ratio on my lc day and 1700 with a 50-30-20 ration on my high days. Or should I use the number given as my BMR and just subtract 25% in order to create a deficit. I hope this made sense and any help is appreciated.
