My total Calorie Needs at 205lbs are 2510 per-day
My estimated Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) 1620 calories burned doing nothing..
The amount of energy (in the form of calories) that the body needs to function while resting for 24 hours is known as the basal metabolic rate, or BMR. This number of calories reflects how much energy your body requires to support vital body functions if, hypothetically, you were resting in bed for an entire day.
Ø Meaning I was consuming 890 calories more than my body burned in a day.
For a 30% weight loss, the recommended calorie intake is 1757 calories per-day
For an aggressive weight loss, the recommended calorie intake is 1510 calories per-day
Using an activity calculator below are Calorie Burn Calculations for 205lbs @ 5’7
1) Water Aerobics 1.5 hours = 586
2) Water Aerobics 2.0 hours= 781
3) Walking 3.0mph 1.0 hours= 322
4) Light Weight Training 45mins= 220
By continuing my present schedule of water aerobics twice daily M-W-F and incorporating Light Weight Training Tuesday’s and Thursday’s, as well as a Brisk Walk every Saturday and Sunday, it is estimated I will use 5185 calories to complete these activities. In addition, considering my body burns 1620 calories in a day without activity, to maintain vital body functions, my weekly calorie burn now totals 6805.
As we know, we must burn and/or eliminate 3500 calories to lose 1lb. Therefore, on this schedule it is estimated, I will lose 1.7lbs per week, before Food Calorie Reduction. Reducing my food calories to 1510 calories per-day, will eliminate an additional 1000 calories a day from my estimated total calorie need. Thus, in seven days I can decrease my present weight by 3.7lbs… INTERESTING!
