The formula you are looking for is:

Calories Eaten - (BMR + Calories Burned)

You can see your own personal differential if you click on "MY TRACKERS" and then select "REPORTS". But of course you have to be tracking your food and exercise for it to work.

If you are looking to do a little more reading on calories, differential, starvation mode etc., here is a link to a SP article.

I am doing better thanks, I wasn't on SP for quite a long time either after my Mom passed away. I will be honest I gave up for a few months and kinda slid into a depression, but I know that was wrong and that I need to get healthy once and for all so I don't end up like Mom did.
I am working out very hard these days usually 5-6 days a week is my goal. Right now I am doing the Biggest Loser 6 week Cardio Max workout, I am on week 2 as well as still adding in alot of Turbo workouts.
My daughter is doing Chalene Extreme right now and doing fantastic with it, she is in the push month. I will do Chalene Extreme after I drop more pounds. Our goal is to get Turbo FIre once we both get through the workouts we are doing now. She will be ready for Turbo Fire before I will.

Thanks for clarifying that I was right on the calorie deficit. Glad that it is not too much per day. I know the days I don't workout I need to take in a few less calories so I can at least have a 500 calorie deficit. I try to workout at least 60 mins a day between the two workouts, as the biggest loser one is 35 mins. Some days I workout 75 mins or so and I am amazed that I can do that now without being dead afterwards..lol

you are correct... and 1000 calories range isnt bad! It takes 3500 calories (500 deficit every day) to drop a pound, so the 2 lbs is douable! you can do it!! I would strive for 500-1000 deficti daily.. less calorie intake on the days your worlout is less, and more when the workouts are more intense! hope this helps!! How are things going?? Its been a while!!! I havent been on SP for quiet sometime! ready to get back into it!!

I have kind of a strange question.
What I am trying to understand is calorie deficit. What I understand it to be is the following.
BMR +calories burned thru excersize - calories eaten is that correct? If so what is a good deficit range? I have been thinking about trying to be in the 1000 calorie deficit range that way I could lose about 2lbs a week. I don't think that is too much.
Would love to hear all your input about this.
