Time For a Change Mom's Journal, 22 February 2013

I don't understand how FS calculates the RDI. It says based on my info I can have 2300 calories per day. That is insane. If I ate that a day I would never lose. I aim for 1400 per day and that is working but I don't understand why it is figuring it as it is.

Diet Calendar Entry for 22 February 2013:
1520 kcal Fat: 58.50g | Prot: 52.00g | Carb: 201.50g.   Breakfast: nutri grain strawberry bar. Lunch: lean cuisine tortilla crusted fish. Dinner: Kettle Cooked Reduced Fat Original Potato Chips, Rising Crust Pizza - Pepperoni. Snacks/Other: FiberPlus Chewy Bars - Nutty Delights, Nuggets. more...


Dee Dee, mine is over 2000 too! I don't know based in what they calculate, cause using 1500 I was barely loosing...

I always set my activity level to sedentary when calculating my RDI. Then I figure any exercise I do is purely a bonus. :) It makes a big difference on the FS RDI.

Even I set to sedentary it still doesen't work for me. It gives me 1900 cal. lol

I set my RDI to match whatever my est energy used if I slept 24 hours a day would be - that tricks my mind into 'I'm not maxing my RDI and can concentrate on eating to satisfy my hunger rather than eating just because the number says I can.
