Perfection Is the Goal, Peace is What it Brings

Oh what can I say? Yes it is a wonderful, devious, ingenious idea.

So I learned in nutrition that one pound of fat has 3,500 calories. This gave me a wonderful, devious, ingenious idea.
Work out for 3 hours: 1800 cals in the am
keep my intake round 550 calories
keep up my with my studies. Finals are not even a month a way.
Then go for my usual nightly swim. (around 500 cals).

My BMR: 1,550 calories

BMR is how many calories your body needs if you were to lay completely still all day to maintain you current wait. Essentially its the calories your body needs to preform basic physiological functions, breathing, heart beating, metabolism, producing atp, digesting nutrients ect.

So if I eat 550 calories,
Just being alive: 1,000 calories
working out in the am: 1,800 calories
Swimming: 500 calories

That would mean equal a burn of 3,300 a day. 
So I know what your thinking your 200 calories short?!

But in reality, I actually need 2,000 (who could eat that much) Calories to  maintain my body weight once you factor in my lifestyle, (Geez nutrition is the best class I have ever taken). I get professional advice with out even having to pay for it, (well I do have to pay for it, but its tuition vs a doctor bill)

So if anyone would like me to figure your BMR or daily caloric needs I would be happy too!
Also if you are following me and I am not following you just tell me, I love you and appreciate you all so much, I would hate not to follow you, and give you the same support!

with love,

  1. So I tried to figure out my BMR... but I totally got confused, and I don't think I did it right. And I don't think I understand BMR.. Hm.


Your word are inspiring!
