I just want to make sure I am having enough, I am worried about eating too much and think I may not be eating enough in the process. By my reckoning, if we are going from 500 cals per day to 2000 cals per by the end of RTM (I have checked what I should have for my age, weight, etc and it is just over 2000), then it should go as follows or thereabouts. Week 1 add 100 = 600 per day Week 2 add 100 = 700 per day Week 3 add 100 = 800 per day Week 4 add 100 = 900 per day Week 5 add 100 = 1000 per day Week 6 add 100 = 1100 per day Week 7 add 100 = 1200 per day Week 8 add 150 = 1350 per day Week 9 add 150 = 1500 per day Week 10 add 150 = 1650 per day Week 11 add 150 = 1800 per day Week 12 add 200 = 2000 per day I made the trigger weeks more as it is higher cal stuff. Does that sound about right to you? I am on week 8, and have been trying to stay down at 1000 mark, but with adding staples this week it is hard, but I am scared of putting weight on. Logic tells me that I can't put on weight by eating 1350 per day, but I am getting panicky. Also I have upped my exercise, like today I did 1 hour step aerobic class then a 40 min power walk round the park. According to my calorie counter that is about 800 cals burnt. Is that too much if I only eat 1000 or even 1350 per day? Unsure about all this.
