Even though I know a lot about exercising trying to figure out my calorie needs was driving me crazy. Yesterday, I took this quiz at Web Md Personal Diet Evaluator and now I have my answers which I will share.
The quiz asks a lot of questions such as your age, height, current weight, activity level, pant size... Mine is age 46 my height 5'6, weight 162, activity level moderate, pants size is 12,my bmi 26 (overweight) range.
So to live my calorie level needs to be 1388, 2151 to maintain, to lose weight 1651. They suggest reducing calories by 233 and burning 233 with exercise.
They say I could be at 150 by April 16, 2011 how cool is that? I thought it was funny that they suggested my shape is becoming pair I always thought I was a apple due to being big chested...My waist size is healthy supposed to be half of your height or less:)
Just thought I would share...encourage any one reading this that is struggling to take this quiz find out your numbers.
Yesterday I did a short but intense cardio session plus weights I am sore today along with my abs and eating was OK. Today is another cardio day probably a long one.
Make it a great day.
