How much do we have to eat to lose???

Tuesday, August 05, 2008

DixieDjC cannot seem to get over 930 calories into her meals per day. Will she lose weight at this rate? She must have a very small appetite. Perhaps she should try to get more fruits into the mix...Any suggestions?

    You have received some great advice. I eat extra fruit and snacks to get my count up.

    I have trouble getting my calorie count up to. Usually have to stick an extra snack in to get it up to 1100. I think in spite of what the "official" count is we all may to play a little to see what is working for us. Are these calorie ranges really appropriate for 70 year olds and 25 year olds?? In spite of being fairly active and my official exercise I sure know I am not as active as when I was raising children, taking care of a house and working full time. One to two pounds off a week - balanced against the calories you consumed to get there should tell you what is working - not all in one week, of course, but balanced over several.

    Nuts are a great, healthy way to kick your calories up into the "acceptable" range. (I have trouble with getting enough most days too...) You just have to make sure the nuts don't knock your fat column out of the ballpark. Almonds are the best overall. I do walnuts on occasion, but those are higher fat, so a little more difficult to juggle. Hope that helps!
