Countdown to Challenge 5 - Numbers

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

In Summer 5% Challenge my goal is:
- lose 11 pounds in 8 weeks (23rd June - 18th August)

- eat 1410 - 1760 kcal a day
- burn 740 kcal per week

I'm a bit skeptic about the calories, since I don't track food all the time, and I usually eat a bit more (although I wish I could eat 1400kcal) . Also, I burn more that 740 kcal a week.
As long as it's at least minus 3500 kcal by the end of the week, I should be OK.

+ a 45 min evening walk
+ a normal-sized breakfast and dinner
+ last meal at 17.45h
+ no sweets/snacks

- too large portion for lunch
- pasta for lunch

    If you routinely burn more than 740 kcal a week, and the 1410-1760 is based on that 740, you can adjust upward pretty simply - either here on SP or just manually. (On SP, go to the Fitness Page to change settings, scroll to the very bottom, and you can enter the number of calories you expect to burn. The nutrition page will be automatically updated. Manually, take the difference between what you burn and the 740, divide it by 7 days a week, and you have the number of extra calories you could eat daily.)
