Sorry to be a pain but I judt don't get it.

I've done my BMR and it's 1585 - does that mean that to drop a pound a week I need to be eating 1085 cals a day???

I presume that can't be right as it's very low....

Can anyone clarify this please?

Thanks.x

Roughly, yes. Stick with SW hun, it's so much easier and it works on what the calories do for you rather than how many there are!

hey there, i thought i could help you here, you dont need to take the 500 away from your BMR, you need to take it away from your burn figure, which is your BMRx1.2 which in your case is 1902, so you need to take 500 from that which is 1402 which is the amount of calories you need to eat.

This is the correct way to do it. you have to add in how much exercise you do, and at 1.2 its sedentary exercise. for 1-3 times a week exercise its 1.35.

go to Harris Benedict Equation to find out what to multiply your bmr by. :D

I get the feeling my calorie allowance would be fairly high then! last time I checked my BMR was about 1690 and I exercise for 9 hours per week

No. Your daily calorie burn if you're sedentary will be 1902 (BMR x 1.2) so to lose 1lb a week eat 1402cals. Your BMR is what your body needs to function properly, and is what you use up if you lay in bed all day. I'm assuming you get up, work, tidy up etc, so you're at least 'sedentary'- so you multiply your BMR by 1.2 to find out what your body 'burns' in a typical day. HTH?
