a little mind boggling this 'early' in the day....but good info for sure. Is this the same kind of calculation SP uses when determining your calorie range? I have to admit, I like making the fitness tracker 'yell' at me when I burn more calories than I've set as a weekly goal Oddly, however the days I work out hard are the days I'm less interested in overeating!? I'm more likely to over eat on a day that I feel lethargic and lazy...odd, right? I think I've been balancing it out pretty well though over all.

great subject for sure and another thing that might be cosidered is serving sizes those calories are based on a 2000 calorie diet and higher and i don't know many of us in that high calorie range for sure the lady mary

HOW TO DETERMINE CORRECT CALORIC INTAKE (and More)
Caloric intake based on activity level. Need to determine via conversion of weight into grams (g) The formula for this is weight divided by 2.2 = weight in grams. Lets use me as an example. I removed the ounces to keep weight even in number. 172 divided by 2.2 = 78 (g)
An average norm activity level for women is ,8 - 1.1 calories (burned) per minute
To be considered: Low activity vs High activity days.
Low = (my g weight) 78 x .8 x 24 (hours in the day) = 1498 (rounded up) calories needed
High = 78 x 1.1 x 24 = 2059 (again rounded but this time down - 2059.2) calories needed on high activity day
ACTIVITY LEVEL CHART
Sedentary 1.0 Low Active 1.12 Active 1.27 Very Active 1.45
I am considered "Active"
1498 x 1.27 = 1902 calories on a "Low" Day 2059 x 1.27 = 2615 calories on a "High Day"
These are the calories needed to keep body functioning properly. A "low" day may be normal activity perhaps going to church then taking a nap. "High" may = active day is working out but not hard core gym 7 days a week...remember the more active you are the more calories you need.
Now to recognize the type of caloric intake needed it is divided into calories, protein, carbs, fats. Normally ratio for protein intake is 15-30%, Carbs 50-70% & fats 10-15%. For weight loss however these numbers are moderated. The equation is 1 to 1 ration between protein and carbs therefore the protein is increased to 35%, Carbs are lowered to 35% and fat is increased (fat keeps you full!) to 30%. now to understand how much is needed of each for weight loss in grams the following formulas apply:
Low Calorie Day High Calorie Day
Calories 1902 2605
Protein - 4 calories in every gram of protein 1902 x 35% divided by 4 = 166 g (low day) 2605 x35% divided by 4 = 228 g (high day) These numbers are how many grams needed on high vs low day of protein
Carbs - 4 calories in every gram so calculations are going to be the same 166 g (low day) 228 g (high day)
Fats - 9 calories in 1 g of fat 1902 x 30% divided by 9 = 63 g (low day) 2605 x 30% divided by 9 = 87 g (high day)
This was all so much easier via the video however the video would not come across. If you guy have any questions as I may not have presented it well...kept going back to video LOL!
Just thought this info huge and wanted to share as it helps take the mystery out of CICO. Next week Steph is talking about portion sizes in relation to the above...that too (to me anyway) is a huge thing as I tend to go too big or too small never just right LOL!
