Body Transformation: Weekly Update 132
Oh calories! My calories!
I was told by numerous people that it’d be beneficial to give some insight as to what my calories look like every week. While I’m not going to post every single meal, I do have a few highlights to share starting this Wednesday and going forward.
Weight: 202.2 pounds | down 0.6 pounds since last week
Average Daily Calories: 2,250 calories
Most Calories in One Meal: 1250 calories at Five Guys with a little cheeseburger, half a serving of regular fries, and 20 ounce sweet tea with lemon
Most Calories Burned in One Session: 500 calories during a 45-minute spin class
Most Repeated Workout Song: Eminem – Won’t Back Down (from MI4)
All calorie figures are estimated. And with that being said, all figures regarding calories in food or calories burned during exercise from myself, MyfitnessPal, restaurants, or anybody else for that matter are just estimates. They’re accurate, +/- 10-20%.
That’s why fretting over exact numbers is futile.
As a general plan, I try to keep my dinner under 500-600 calories and eat most of my calories by 3 PM (1,750 or so). I typically have three larger meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and a snack in between them around 9 AM and 3 PM. Constantly fueling my body with food keeps me from getting hungry and going crazy at lunch or dinner.
That’s my schedule at least, and it’s up to you whether or not you want to follow it.
Just make sure you’re under your calorie count at the end of most days and you’ll keep losing weight. That’s the basic premise behind counting calories.
