Hi, So I try to work out everyday or at least 3-5 times a week for 40 minutes. In order to lose weight my calorie goal is 1300-1400 a day. With the workouts I normally burn 300-400 calories. My question is in regards to food, do I eat only the 1400 calories or do I subtract my calories burned and then eat up to 1400.
For example, if I eat 1400 cal and burn 400 cal, am I able to eat 400 more calories and still lose weight?
1400-400 = 1000
Or do I not consume the 400 calories I burned?
I'm just confused about how all this calorie stuff works.
Thanks in advance.
I used to be an active member but went of WW due to pregnancy. My baby is now 3 weeks old and I want to get back to some healthy eating habits so I've come back to my weight loss blog on LJ. I'm not technically doing WW right now as I want to wait a little while longer since I am breast feeding. I do however need to make some changes to my diet and would like some support while I get back on track. (I will eventually go back to WW to lose all the weight.)
Feel free to add me as an lj friend.
I re-joined WW last Thursday for the fourth time. My boyfriend is in Austria until July 1st and my ultimate goal is to lose 15-20 pounds before he gets home. I also started training for a 5K for June 27th. I've been following the Couch to 5K program and It's great but the music gets REAL old, quick. Is the Nike+ program worth the money?
I lost 5.6 my first week back. I think training for my 5K has given me something to work for and forced me to work harder.
