I've started counting calories to ward off the "newlywed bulge." I've been pretty successful (6 pounds in a couple of months), but I'd like to know for sure how many calories I can have per day and still lose about a pound a week.
I tried eight online "weight loss calculators" and got different numbers each time, ranging from 2,040 to 1,314. I then found the Harris-Benedict Formula, which gave me a daily caloric total of 1,831. I've been hovering around 1,400 calories per day, though, and 1,831 seems kind of high.
Has anyone else had this problem? Is the math to be trusted, or does it have to be trial and error?
