Know Your Numbers

Now that you have direction- are you ready for crunching a few numbers?  I promise to make this simple…

1. Calculate your daily calories for weight loss- take your weight in lbs and multiple by 11 to get your daily calorie needs.  Now for weight loss, subtract 300 kcal if you are not exercising.

Example – 120 lbs x 11 = 1320 daily kcal

2.  Calculate your daily protein grams to preserve muscle- take your weight in lbs and divide it by 2- increase by 10 grams- 20 grams if you are weight training aggressively.

Example – 120 lb /2= 60 grams of protein.  If you are working out aggressively, increase to 80 grams.

3.  Calculate your daily fat grams by taking your weight in lbs and divide it by 3.

For example- 120 lbs/3- 40 grams of fat per day minimum.

4. All types benefit from watching sugar- read labels, and keep sugar grams under 40 grams per day.

Good Luck and remember- your weight is a reflection of your overall health- and one of our many vital signs.
