WOW WOW WOW
Ok so I know that to maintain my current weight I need to be consuming 2600 calories a day
which is your weight x's 10
so for me I am cutting my intake down to 1600 calories.
by cutting down 7000 calories a week that is a loss of 2 pounds per week
now if I burn 500 calories a day that is another pound...
easy right? lol it is overwhelminnnggggg
and 1600 calories seems like a lot but it's NOT
I had an eye opener this morning.
I bought a healthy cerial by Kashi.
I ate it and then decided to count the calories
ok let's start cerial
1 serving was 1 cup
190 each cup
and I ate 2 cups
then milk 2%
1 serving is 1 cup
I poured 2 over the cerial
at 130 calories each cup
for ONE BOWL OF CERIAL 640 CALORIES which is 40% of my entire daily intake. WOW!!!!!!!!!
so I am going to be keeping a food journel now as well.
What an eye opening experience
Here is the site I found this information
Hope this helps someone
