T180, in order to lose 2# a week you have to eliminate 1000 calories a day from your daily intake.
At 270 to maintain that weight you would have to eat 3240 calories a day. That's if your active (cardio) w/ at least 60mins a day.
So if you burn lets say 500 cals a day in physical activity you would take that away from the 3240-500= 2740 - 500 (caloric intake)that would be 2240 calories a day. You would re access that every 10#
It sounds like a lot. However it depends on what you eat. If your eating saturated fats and a large amount of fat that won't help. If your eating the wrong kinds of grains (white bread) that will just turn into sugar quickly in your body. Whole wheat takes longer to process. You might want to balance out how often you eat, certain amount of proteins, grains, and fats
I count calories but I also count how many proteins, veggies, fruits, grains and fats I eat a day.
Personal I would set my goal for 1# a week, if you make 2 that's good. I personal right now eat 1430-1780 calories a day. This is my first week at it so I'll see how that works.
Just let it be a slow and steady process, because 1 it's healthier, 2 you will learn more from it. It will make you become more conscious of a healthy lifestyle. You don't want to burn yourself out on exercise.
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is to try to please everyone.
