Am I doing this wrong


Full Member
Hi Guys

I have been aiming to eat 1350 cals a day, this was what the HCA told me to have. I have gone over a few times but have done exercise to compensate.
This what i have had over the last few weeks.

Cals eaten Cals Burnt @gym
Week one

Fri 2549 300
sat 1276 540
sun 1371 500
mon 1566 0
tues 1307 160
wed 1626 0
total 9695 1500 95 cals over the week

Week 2
thurs 1628 0
Fri 2697 220
sat 1330 1020
sun 1481 200
mon 1371 0
tues 1424 800
wed 1239 0
Total 11170 2240 520 cals down on the week

Week 3
thurs 1481 700
Fri 1974 0
sat 1817 0
sun 1321 850
mon 1654 0
tues 1513 120
wed 1200 200
Total 10960 1870 360 cals down on the week

Food i have eaten includes fruit veg, choc, jacket potatoes,chicken,salads, crisps, jelly, only pasta or rice once a week.
Any ideas on whether I'm eating too much or should i just increase my exercise?

The HCA at my gp surgery has told me to eat 1300 cals, and not too increase it just because im exercising and feeling more hungry.

Thanks Everyone

Hi there, weight loss is a funny thing, I don't lose in one go at all.

Just glanced over you cals and gym sessions...

I would discount any cals burnt at the gym, I always thought that your cal intake accounts for excercise in the first place?? I never count cals burnt off and take off the overall cal intake... I'm also on about 1200, this takes into account any excercise I do, so I can't consume more (unless I'm planing a trip to south pole or something)

hope it sorts itself out hun xx

I could be wrong though I'm no expert.
