Diet (sorta)  
So depending on which sites i check my daily calorie use may be anywhere from 2035 to 2400. So unless i can figure out a way to narrow that down i have to assume that i need to average under 2000 calories a day to make any progress. Since i started keeping track i've gone a little under target most days, with a scattering of days a lot over, and a few a lot under. Hopefully it all averages out to something good. Since i was still at 199 point something this morning that would seem to be the case. On the other hand that probably means i need to recalculate my BMR for 200 lbs and figure out a new target =P

And here's a big chunk of data about how much i've eating, although i think only one person is likely to be particularly interested :)

Looking briefly at the list, do you drink a lot of water, or did you fail to record drinks? Or do you drink only diet soda?

Mainly diet pop, except when rollerblading during which i drink a ton of water :)

OK, from a nutritionist's standpoint, it's infinitely better to eat approximately the same amount every day, rather than gorging and starving alternately. (4,000 calories is gorging.) Try to keep the low end at your BMR try to keep it between, say, 1750 and 2250 calories a day. Your metabolism will thank you.
DonAithnendonaithnen on September 2nd, 2008 04:57 pm (UTC)
I'm _mostly_ staying in the 1700-2000 range, there's just the occasional exception where i'm either incredibly or not particularly hungry.

And shouldn't the upper end of the range be at my BMR if i'm trying to lose weight?
Sister Atom Bomb of Courteous Debateakiko on September 2nd, 2008 05:24 pm (UTC)
Counter-intuitively, no. Your metabolism will slow down if you keep it under-fed - it tries to conserve what it gets, which ultimately results in weight gain. You should eat your BMR plus about 250-500 to lose or maintain, but you shouldn't try to do more than 1-2 lbs/week (a reduction of 500-1000 calories a day, either through decreased intake or increased expenditure, ie exercise. Preferably both.)
DonAithnendonaithnen on September 2nd, 2008 07:31 pm (UTC)
Ahh, you're going with the technical "lying there in a coma" version of BMR? Most of the websites i've found giving a "BMR" value aren't very clear if they're including a basic activity level or not.
Sister Atom Bomb of Courteous Debateakiko on September 2nd, 2008 07:48 pm (UTC)
The BMR is defined as the amount of energy your body expends to perform its basic functions (heart beating, nerve signals, digestion, etc.) Anything above that is no longer basal. Any reputable site will include the factor by which to multiply your BEE (basal energy expenditure) as calculated by the Harris Benedict equation based on your activity level. http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/harris-benedict-equation/ has a decent discussion.

good for you for doing things the right way! :)
