Silly question here...

Life style...well I sit on my bum at work but then I don't sit unitl I go to bed at night...I'm either walking approx 2 miles almost every day or 1/2 hr zumba & a bit of strength training...is it active or low active?

Thanks Confused

I sit all day at work too and try to get a workout in 5-6 times a week. I usually put myself at low active because of all of the sitting I do during the day. I find that when I'm trying to calculate calories the low active end is more what I should aim for.
Goals for 2018:
Do 20 consecutive push-ups
Use 10 lb. weights for a whole workout
Get one mile pace under 11 mins.
Get stronger physically and mentally

Unfortunately you have to be really careful about entering activity level and activities. You could end up with an extra 1000 calories a day that you never did in reality. Entries for desk work, driving, etc. should be left off IMO.

When I started, I set myself as sedentary, even if I was far from that - just to be safe. The worst thing that can happen is that you will lose MORE weight. Smile

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.

The numbers they give you are only estimates that are based on groups of people who may not be like you. The people who they tested may be exercising harder or easier. Don't automatically add in lots of calories because the numbers say you burned them off. Tweak your program based on whether you are losing or not.

water after eating?
Water has no calories. It will not make you fatter. There isn't a lot of research about when to drink water because water won't hurt you unless you are drinking gallons of it per day.
