Well the thought is.
I will eating 2000 calories a day, that is a lot of food if i eat healthy, I will introduce foods like sandwiches (healthy ones), and not be afraid to eat carbs. I will eat bigger breakfast, more oats or weet-bix than I do now. At this present time I am more restrictive on carbs and calories until my goal is met.
For dinner I will still continue to eat Kangaroo meat, I love it, favorite meat so I see no need to change. I will continue to eat vegetables, and maybe still even have all protein dinner as I do now (kangaroo meat and eggs).
Not a whole lot will change, I will still eat the things I do now, just a bit more of it, more fruit and so forth.
I am rather restrictive on calories, about 1200 a day at present (today I had 1300-1400). My target will be 1800-2000. And I will still do a 5km job every night. I probably be burning close to 3000 a day. That 1000 calories spare will be used up with 1-2 bad meals a week, if I want KFC, I will get it, if I want McDonalds I will get that too, even if it is a large meal and extra burger (1400 Calories). Even a KFC Zinger box up sized with extra crispy strips hit around 1600 Calories I think. But if I leave 1000 a day, that is 7000 per week less than maintenance. Enough to cover those bad meals with a little interest.
That is the plan, still enjoy my food as I have always done, but do it smartly.
Last 7 days I have burnt 4800 calories through exercise, my job is on my feet a bit, plus 1.2km to work and back on foot. So without exercise I would burn 2227/day (http://www.caloriesperhour.com/index_burn.php
), That is based on desk job, which I am on my feet a little more than that. I am eating 1500 at most. That is 727 per day free with no exercise, average exercise is burning 685 NET Calories, total for day 2912 Calories. But in my calculations my BMR is 1750 Net, if I laid in bed all day and never moved. That is 72 calories per hour, I would have to subtract that from anything burned to find proper NET amount. A 10 jog/brisk walk burns 748 Calories in 87 Minutes, 104 calories would of be burnt if I did nothing, so subtract that from 748 gives me 644.
My 5km jog (I will be doing when finished, no 10km) burns half of that 322 Calories NET. So 2227 + 322 = 2549 Calories burned per day, usual day with work and 5km exercise every night. Keep in mind my job is a little more on my feet and I walk to work 1.2km each way. So probably add another 150 Calories.
2549 + 150 = 2699 Calories per day is what I will be burning if you understand my math. That is NET result.
If I eat 2000, I have 699 spare x 7 = 4893 Calories per week for food I enjoy. I won't push that all the way, I will say try to have 3000 per week on Calories of that I enjoy. If it is cake, so be it, KFC, so be it. I will leave that 1893 Calories free for days when I do not work, where my base BMR might be lower than 2227. But I will still exercise those days.
I re-read 10 times, it confuses me even.
So 2000 Calories a day in, 2772 Out = 772 * 7 = 5404 Calories.
