This might be a dumb question, but when you exercise are you still limited to the total amount of 1270?

I mean, with the exercise taking off cals, can you eat whatever you want as long as the exercise brings it back down or do you still eat 1270?

Because I just checked my CalorieKing for today and the figure says ive only eaten 142 of my 1270 but thats because I did a lot of exercise today and its taken it off my cals consumed. Does that mean, now, I can STILL eat up those other cals?

To be honest Zoeh, this is the bit where I always got confused and never really figured it out. I think you can still eat your exercise calories, if that makes sense, as you would more than likely still be in a calorie deficit. I found as I increased my exercise my food intake wasn't enough when I was doing around the same cals as you. However, I increased it as I was getting hungry at times in the day when I hadn't been before.

You can work out your energy needs here to find out how much you should be eating to maintain your weight. If you are under that amount, the theory goes, you should continue to lose weight.

I think that it is completely up to you Zoeh. You can get the extra bonus of the exercise and eating your nominated calories means you will burn more fat than if you ate your whole calorie limit along with the extra calories from exercising. So it is entirely up to you. I eat more than the 1300 cals but once exercise is added in I am back around the 1000 cals on a normal day. You shouldn't eat more because it says you haven't eaten enough once you have taken off your exercise, if you aren't hungry. If you have a look at the total for the day, scroll down to the bottom of your food intake and just above the little bar for the calories is the total amount of food/drink calories you have consumed, prior to exercise being taken off. The bar is just showing you the total after exercise. I hope this has helped you Zoeh. Just listen to your body and if you eat more try not to eat more fat. I'm doing fine with the calorie count, just terrible with the fat count. I tend to be over nearly every day. I wasn't yesterday tho!!! :D I'm proud of myself for that! We won't talk about today tho!!!

Thanks for your help guys

I looked at that calculator thing I entered my stuff and said moderately active and the calories it allows each day is 1000 less than my eating plan(!?)

Oh well

Aren't you having around 1300 per day Zoeh? I may have misread earlier but for some reason that's what I thought you were having.

Oh lol sorry I thought you meant the other way around, that the energy needs calculator was saying 1000 less than 1260! Never mind, I got it now. Yeah that 2259 is for maintenance not for weightloss. I have noticed calorie king rates it a whole lot lower. If you aren't hungry then keep doing what you are doing. If the exercise makes you hungry then eat a bit more, just try to keep the food good quality food. Best of luck.

How long is it supposed to take to reach the first goal? That isnt a weekly goal is it?

What is the goal you are referring to? If you are talking about a weight goal. The experts say 1/2 to 1 kg per week is considered excellent weight loss. Some do more, some do less. Personally I averaged around 750g per week.
