    Helping you set your recommended amount of calories...

    I'm part of a group on minimins that promotes eating a few more calories a day for an easier time dieting and better fat burn.

    Here's the link to the thread:

    In Place of a Road Map 2.0 (Revised) 7/2/12 | MyFitnessPal.com

    You'll need your weight, height and a few measurements. If you have any trouble or get confused, feel free to post and I'll try my best!

    Hiya! I've just worked it out and I'm scared that it's too many calories! I apparently have 27.9% body fat percent! Anyways I'm 143lbs and my goal is 119lbs. It says that I should eat 1616cals for sedentary and 1852cals for lightly active. Don't know which one to pick. I'm a nurse so I work 8hrs a day and am standing for those 8hrs. I also walk 30mins 5days a week. Will I still lose weight if those cals are so high? I used to eat 1200 and id lose bout 1-1.5lbs a week so I don't know what to do! Would really love your input on this, thanks!

    I'd definitely put it at LEAST lightly active. Being a nurse is hard work. The main thing to remember is to eat above your BMR so that your metabolism doesn't slow and your body is getting enough calories to function. The calories after that are to help fuel you through your day <3

    I'm losing and it's much easier and enjoyable! Loads have people have lost but you'll probably find that you will lose fat before weight, possibly. It's more of a fat burning program so you don't end up 'skinny-fat'.

    Yea of course I will! I'm gonna do the sedentary calories as eating 1850 (lightly active) scares me! So the sedentary is 1660cals. Very interested to see how I do! I walk 30-60mins daily about 5days a week-I'm not a fan of exercise but enjoy walking to and from work!
    My starting stats for week 1 are:
    Weight: 143lbs
    Waist: 30inches
    Hips: 37inches
    Ill measure my thighs tomorrow morning.

    Day 1 complete-total 1660cals
    Wish me luck!!

    Hi tdee is total daily energy expenditure ... That's the number you get when you have your BMR and then calculate your exercise .,!! ie: sedentary or lightly active etc ..!!
    The link that is in this thread suggests minus 20% from this in order to lose weight ..
    For example:-my BMR is 1350 cajs per day .. Whaty body needs just by breathing heart beating etc ... I then multiply this by a number that relates to me being lightly active ... (you'd have to look which as I can't remember it) ... And that gives me 1860 cals daily ... And them fur weight loss minus 20%... Which gives me around 1460 cals per day ..!!
    The link on here takes you a piece written by a bloke who explains it all .. I had up read it and re read it ..!!! Lol til it sunk in ... If you google tdee you'll find loads on there about it and calculators .!

    Ohhh!! Makes sence now! I'm the same as you so 1460 a day I'm lightly active so should have been 1850 a day but that seemed too high so I went with the sedentary at 1660! Which I ate yesterday but walked an hour and on my feet all day so hopefully will be ok! So my cals now changing to 1460
    Thanks a mill!

    You should lose weight but if you stall up the calories for a couple of weeks
