Started FitDay 1/25/13, but need clarification about calories lifestyle.
 
Hi everyone!

I just started FitDay last week (1/25/13) being 167 pounds. It is 1/31/13 today and I am down to 162.8!!! My goal is to lose about 10 lbs a month. I am pretty sure weight loss won't be so fast my 2nd week onwards... I tend to plateau, level out, then drop suddenly. Not sure if you guys have the same way of losing weight. I just hope I keep losing and reach the 10lbs a month goal. (I have about 40lbs to lose)

I do have a question though... I don't know what Calories Lifestyle means. Mine is set to 2346, and according to my goal, i should eat 1247 calories a day. So, what does calories lifestyle mean and how does it relate to calories eaten/burned? I dont see anything about this in the support section either. can someone help clarify?

Oh and I tend to gain weight whenever i start working out. whats up with that? even if its just walking or something...my weight shoots up! it is so frustrating! :(

Thank you for reading my post!

Hi Tahira
Calories lifestyle is the calories you burn everyday in regular life does not include workouts, walking etc. Gaining weight makes me wonder if you are drinking enough water. Good luck

thank you. so basically i am eating 1247 calories as my goal, and overall i lose about 2346 calories a day (lifestyle calories). Is that on top of the 2346 or the difference between the two (1099 calories?)

as for gaining weight while working out... i was actually having a ton of water (i had a personal trainer that told me to have like 10-12 glasses of water a day)... and still gained weight instead of losing. maybe my body is really stubborn.

It is the difference between the two. That deficit should, on average, net you about a two pound loss per week.

Sometimes muscles hold onto water after exertion, providing a slight weight gain. Does this level off eventually?

thanks for your reply. yeah, it does level off eventually but it takes a while to. a couple of weeks.
