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.

except mine comes out at more than 2900 to maintain, and I actually only need about 2300 to maintain...ah well I can work it out based on that!

lol - didn't mean to freak everyone out. I just thought everyone would be like and be really neurotic about trying to predict their loss.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!! oxo

p.s. 1600 calories -misery! Fill up on 'no point' foods if I were you.
