Confusion on my 1,200 calorie diet
Okay, i hope someone can answer my questuon because i have been trying to find an answer but still end up confused. I use my fitness pal and my calorie goal is 1,200 (thats what they put for me) i work out around 4-5 times a week. I normally burn 600 calories by working out. Okay heres where my confusion starts: since im working out almost everyday, do i eat more than 1,200? What i have been doing is eating 1,200 calories a day and if i work out, ill eat some of the calories back or else i would starve. Can i still lose weight this way? Im remaning at my goal and working out so im just confused on whether i can remain there or have to up my calories!
Wow really?! 2050? The difference is too much, fitness pal told you the 1200 calorie intake? If you don't mind me asking what's your age, height and weight? I have a fitness pal too. :) Maybe I can check it out for you.. or here's a link you can try online http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm.
I also use livestrong app, pretty nice too but I love fitness pal's prediction with your weight in 5 weeks.
I didn't really exercise right then.. it was horrible.. I lost only 6-8 lbs in several months.. I was just using a stationary bike back then.. but, when I started boxing and used the 1200 requirement, I did lose weight. :) I didn't keep track anymore.. since I was just enjoying eating and working out. haha.
I was 125 before and now I am 105... :) But I had boxing to thank for and braces... the braces forced me into eating only healthy stuff. :)
