Re: Calorie intake
That's pretty good sbdot...gets me almost right on. I agree completely with the BMR (mine at 1905 seems almost exact) but the effect of exercise seems less for me.
But the Mod. activity (where I'm pretty sure I am) takes me to 2952.7 and I'll put on weight there.
Even the 2619 of Light Activity might cause a very very slow weight gain...
And I do hit the gym 5 days a week.
Perhaps though I am not working as hard as the averages (but I AM 62) and maybe that 2619 might be closer than I think.
Good formulae though.
I guess that from the CONSTANTS (women: 655, and men:66) women are much more alike than men in BMR because something like HALF of their BMR is determined by their "femininity." Interesting!
I'm putting the formulae in my DOCUMENTS folder!
