SO today I start. really nervous. 1526 calories today! THATS high! And WED??? eeek. The site I went to calculated this and an "extreme loss" calorie schedule. the Extreme would have me under 1200 a lot . . . thinking that may not be the best thing.
OK! So I'm going to give this a try. I've already started . . sort of. I am going to try to follow some kind of guideline. Scary eating high calories. With a few exceptions I have been in the same small range since Jan (1200-1300) need to shake things up a bit

Actual did this in March and lost 6 pounds. Tried to stick with regular calorie range for April's challenge and only lost 1.5 pounds. Now, that the birthday is over, I am getting back to doing this. For example, on days I do the C25K and strength training, I tend to burn 1000 calories or more. So, I eat more: 1500-1700 calories. The days I only do cardio (walking, elliptical, etc.), my calorie range is 1300-1500 calories. Starting Monday, I am going to really focus on this again.

It's also called calorie cycling. There is a great team on here that you can join.
The basis of it all is that on your higher workout days- say if you do cardio & weight training you'd take in more calories. On your slower days you'd take in less calories. I've been using it for a week and I've lost one pound, but most people who do it lose an aveage of 2 pounds a week. I didn't do it fully last week so I'm hoping for better results this week! Check out the group for a lot more info :)
