Have you Been Counting your Calories?

Have you been counting your calories and really watching what you eat,but you haven’t seen the results that you’ve wanted in your body weight?

Hi. My name’s Hunter Grindle. I’ve helped over 100 women get stronger, lose weight and feel more confident through exercise, nutrition and motivation. Today I want to talk to you about figuring out how many calories it takes for you to stay at your current body weight. It’s very important because if you don’t know that base line calorie level, also known as your basal metabolic rate (BMR) it’s very hard for you to make decisions on what you eat throughout the day to reach that goal that you want.

A very good rule of thumb is I want you to take your current body weight and multiply it by 15. If you weigh 100 pounds and you multiply it by 15, 1,500 calories would be your daily intake to remain at that bodyweight. This is a ballpark estimate. It might not be exact, but it’s a very good place to start. Pay attention by weighing yourself every week or a few times a week. Look at the fluctuations in your weight and that you can get closer to your exact caloric intake.

Of course, when your weight changes and you start losing weight or if you want to start gaining weight, then you need to make those adjustments and increase or decrease the amount of calories that you’re eating.
