it's pretty easy to work out, just remember . to eat back your exercise calls, a good way to work them out is to get a heart rate monitor xx

So when you say eat back my exercise call. Do you mean when I exercise I should eat in calories what I have burnt off.?

I'm interested in this comment, I have the app and been using it for a week. Loving the scanner.

What do you mean by work out,
just remember . to eat back your exercise calls,

And

Why would a heart rate monitor help.

Appreciate your feedback x

heart rate monitors give a more accurate reading of cals u have burnt, the numbers mfp gives isnt accurate. ive just recently got one and i was seeing myself off my exercise cals. i dont eat them all back i burn about 500-600 at the gym and allow myself 200 if i need them. you will find a way that works for you but CC is the easiest diet ever and the best way to have a lifestlye change to keep the weight off after x

Hi ya, yes I do :D that's because MFP has already worked out your deficit and If you exercise you will go below that deficit so you need to eat them back :D

Another way is to use TDEE, linski on here explained it to me and there is a thread basically that works out how many cals including any exercise ones and gives you a number of cals to eat so you don't need to eat back the exercise ones as they have already been included, I'm on 1680 cals a day

I hope I haven't confused u too much :D xxx

Hi I'm linski ... I can explain about BMR and TDEE if you want .. It's easy really ..
Welcome by the way :)
I have a heart rate monitor ... Polar rs100 and I love it :) lady night I worked really hard at my class and burned 455 cals .. The MFP database would have had me at 310 cals .. So it's well worth getting one x iv also invested in a fitbit ..!! Loving it and its definitely getting me moving more to make my numbers like good lol
Good luck on your journey xxx

I love the MFP somewhere I can log what I eat. I love the scanner. !
I must say that with this being my 1st day I am hungry. But I think it was to be expected with cutting down a lot today. I have eaten all my cals today. Not had time for exercise today. but will try again tomo. !

Hiya

Well done on your first day! It's hard at first but it gets easier so don't worry. I'm on week 3 and have lost 4lb and weigh again on Thursday so fingers crossed.

Good luck with tomoro
