This weight loss calculator is AWESOME! I have been using Fitbit and trying to eat according to my weight loss goal, but on days when I don’t work out, the calorie goal is too restrictive and on days when I DO work out or am very active, it seems that it allows me to eat TOO much and I just haven’t been seeing any results. I figured my best bet (and how I lost weight before I had a fitbit) was sticking to a calorie goal. In college, I used My Fitness Pal and got down to about 140. (I was active 12+ hours a day between an internship, college courses, and a part time job- plus I went to the gym in between. Now I’m stuck at a desk for the better part of each day, so it’s not as easy.) My goal is to lose 50 pounds by the end of this year, which will get me to 150. I look at pictures of myself at 140 and I was just too thin, so I think 150 is a good weight to aim for. I don’t follow the BMI bs. I don’t believe in it or trust it. My hormone, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels are my top priority and they can speak for themselves over a Westernized weight ideal any day.
Since my goal is ~1500 calories per day, I break it up like this: 300 cals for breakfast (usually oatmeal), 500 cals for lunch (which I meal prep) and 700 for dinner, plus low cal healthy snacks in between. I’ve been doing this since Monday and am already losing weight, which is a GREAT motivator! I know some diets like low carb/keto don’t typically count calories, but if you’ve found yourself at a plateau, this may be the way to go!
