Confuse about Calorie Counting.

Postby chubbywife79 » Tue Jan 01, 2008 7:06 pm

I worked out that I have 735 calories left from everything I eaten today. My question is:

Do I have to eat all my calories? or is it ok to have this much left over?

To me it seem alot to eat!

It does seem a lot. Have you been napping a lot today? I find I need less food when I sleep a lot, but I'm not sure if that stuffs up the metabolism or not.

I'm not too sure about this issue. My guess would be that as long as it's not a daily occurrence it's not too bad to be well under your calorie count for one day. If you're worried about it being too much of a deficit then you can always have a handful of nuts. They're packed with calories, but also contain a lot of protein so they're a nutrient rich way to make up the shortfall.

Sorry I couldn't be more help!
