I know this is an older post, but since I didn't see that anyone replied, I wanted to...well...correct your math?
To lose 1 lb a week, you have to eat 3500 fewer calories a week, or 500/day. According to the calculator you used, the number of calories you need to lose 1lb is 2826, so to lose another 2 lbs a week (3 total) 3500*2=7000 calories a week. This means you need to eat 1000 fewer calories a day, which would be 1826
, not 942
Just don't want you to get frustrated by not losing weight because you're eating too little!
I hope you've been doing well the last month and a half and don't even need my math!
