Weight Loss spin class - watt hours to calories? Apr 13 2012

I don't know that doesn't seem possible that in a 45 minute spin class I only burned 25 calories.  I saw other people's counters and a girl near me had 30 something and a guy had 70 something.  I sweat a lot and I am sore today.

She advises to calculate your BMR.  So I did that, and I got 1346.  I multiplied that by 1.375 so to maintain I should eat around 1850 calories.  To lose weight, about 1350.  But that falls in this woman's range of 1200-1500.  So I'm conflicted...

Woops - I missed this post:

"you dont times it by your 1% of body weight

on the site it says

  1. If you are moderatetely active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.55
  2. If you are very active (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days a week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.725

which for you is either 1. = 1346 x 1.55 =2,086

2. 1346 x 1.725 = 2321.85"

Nevermind!!

I don't understand the calculation part of this.  My BMR is about 1346 and i multiplied by 1% of my weight (1.2) and got 1615.  What does this number mean?  Thanks.

Your BMR 1,346 is the number of calories your body burns to lie in bed whole day.

The calculationsF1tness89 shows what is refered to as your maintainance level. That means based on you level of activity your body will burn that many calories. So if you were to eat that many calories your body will not lose any weight / fat. Eat less, you have a deficit which the body will get by using body fat so you lose weight. You should not eat below your BMR.

The 1% I refered to in my ealier post which I assume you are talking about is to say you should not idealy target to loose more than 1% of your body weight in a week. So if you weigh say 100 lbs your target weight loss is 1lbs a week. Since 1lbs of fat = 3,500 calories you should target to have a deficit of 500 calories a day.


I understand all of that.  But what is the BMR x 1% of your weight number mean?  if 1346 is my maintenance level, what is that 1615 for?

Maybe I am doing it wrong.. but I know I like to snack when I get home at night so I usually do around:

 

Breakfast: about 160

Snack: 110-180

Lunch: about 200

Snack: range 50-150

Dinner: 300-400

Then snacks or more dinner.. it ends at 1400-1500

I know it looks weird compared to other peoples' numbers, but I am eating things with a lot of protein to keep me full.  Eggs, greek yogurt, cottage cheese, protein bar, etc.

This may sound weird, but I want to give my thoughts as well.  To most people I know I probably look like I'm in shape (I'm not though, I still get winded fairly easily, which I am trying to work on) but I am at the last five pounds.  I notice the people around me at the gym when I am bored on the eliptical and when I see people who look new or like they need to lose a little more weight than some others, I admire them, actually. They are there, not caring about other people, and are TRYING.  It actually motivates me even more.  When I first started the gym I was self conscious and unsure.  I started by just going to this half hour class and leaving.  But after a few times I got more comfortable at the gym and tried other things.  So, I just wanted to give you my perspectice because I bet some of the people at your gym are thinking the same thing as me.

I'm not intending to strengthen them, I'm wondering why they feel so sore.  I often walk at a high incline so I know that does something to them.  Also doing all these jumping moves and jump rope works them some how.  My question is if I do activities so often that work them, why do they still get sore?

Same problem.  I go out to dinner during the weekend, order food from a diner for breakfast, etc.  I do go to the gym after work on Fri usually.. but that just gives me more of a reason to let loose with eating.  Sunday nights are my problem because I feel so down about the weekend ending.  I need some tips too!

I am bad at running for long periods.  I like to do intervals on the treadmill - they are usually 2 minutes running, 2 walking.  Is that okay?  I googled Tabata and it shows 20 seconds 10 seconds.. that seems a little too quick to constantly be switching the treadmill.

Weight Loss I need a buddy! Mar 01 2012

I'll be your buddy if you want.  I am around 120 and I am trying to get to 115 or 114.  I'm 5'2''.  I'm trying to figure out how many calories I am supposed to eat since I started exercising.  But a few years ago I lost like 15 lbs over the course of 5 months or so just by eating 1200-1300 cal a day with 1 or 2 cheat days.  I didn't have the energy to exercise back then.  I kept that weight off for 2 years.  (I got down to between 111-115 - I tried for 108 but no matter what I couldn't.  My 5'2'' body seemed to like 111-115.)
