A sum to work out weekly loss...

#1
Whilst doing his Sports Science HND, My OH learned this formula to work out what your body needs to maintain your current weight. -whilst remaining stationery.

Your body weight in kilos x 3500 (the amount of calories in a lb)/ 100 (or just your kilo x 35)

So I do this wee sum -my weight = 88kg x 35 =3080
3080- 450 (approx LT calories)= 2630
2630 x 7 (weekly left out calories) = 18410
divide that by -3500 (calories in lbs) and I can guess that my loss 'should' be -

5.26 lbs

I know it never works out quite like that but it still gives me something to do and something to hope for. :D
