calculating my daily calorie allowance
I have worked out my TDEE and BMR using TDEE Calculator - thefitgirls
Lowest amount I can eat each day: 1530 (because I can't eat below my BMR)
This creates a deficit of: 574 calories a day
1kg of fat contains: about 7700 calories
Which means if I am eating at my BMR, I should lose around 1kg every 13 - 14 days (574 x 13.4 = 7700 approx).
Does this seem about correct?
Also, I don't want to eat 1530 calories per day :flirt2: I want to eat more. I'm happier on around 1800. So, if I eat 1800 calories a day and do enough exercise to burn about 300 calories a day (I usually do some gentle walking for about 90 minutes a day + I'm going to add in a weights and toning video each morning), then I should get the same (or better) effect, than if I were to eat 1530 calories and do no exercise - yes?
Thanks for your help.
