14 lbs to lose

What calories do you eat? Iā€™m not interested in weight, height etc I just want a straightforward answer. It would be refreshing not to over analyse šŸ˜

    Depending on whether I get some exercise in for the day or not, it is 1800 a day, otherwise it is 1500.

    To maintain 3,000 roughly in winter, quite a bit more the rest of the year.

    To lose 14 pounds you'll need to ingest approximately 49,000 fewer calories than you burn. I choose to eat somewhere around 500 fewer calories than I burn each day.

    I eat 1750. Have lost 70.5 lbs in precisely 10 months as of today.

    My cals have varied from 1600 to 1850 over the last 10 months. I settled on 1750 as the least cals I could eat and feel satisfied. 1750 works for me in a way that 1725 does not. I start nibbling and then binging within a day or two as soon as I try to push it under 1750.

    I eat back ~ 40 % of my exercise, on top of the 1750. If my exercise machine reports 500, I'll usually eat back 200 of them. My machine has a terrible problem with exaggeration & that's why.

    I already said that calorie targets truly need to be individual. By way of further explanation, I'm adding this into the mix, as thought-fodder:


    The 1200 calorie is undertaken by many women . . . often for a very short time, frequently followed by regain. :neutral: It's actually suitable for a few.
