Found this formula on a blog, it seems to be what fat secret uses too, cuz if I put in that I sleep all day I get pretty close to the same number. The blog I found it on is here.

To calculate your BMR:

Women: BMR = 655 + (4.35 x weight (lbs.)) + (4.7 x height (ins.)) – (4.7 x age (yrs.))

Men: BMR = 66 + (6.23 x weight (lbs.)) + ( 12.7 x height (ins.)) – ( 6.8 x age (yrs.))

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Red yeast rice worked for me. I now take it only intermittently, and my cholesterol is stable around 5.8. Good luck!

Chart for daily water intake
I think it's weight related - not a standard of so many glasses. Plus some people then add in activity level and environment variables. There's tons of calculators online.

Hi everyone, hope you are all going well. I am struggling to get started. Keep forgetting to add the food I consume. Does anyone else that problem?

Don't spend the money - do it youself if you can get ahold of the diet plan.
