I found this article yesterday that gives you a formula to tell you how many calories you have to eat a day to maintain your weight. So, obviously if you eat less calories you will lose weight, and if you eat more calories you will gain weight. Click here, and a calculator will automatically do it for you. Now, I am not giving out any of my numbers, but my calorie count is REALLY high....and I am pretty sure that I don't eat that many calories in a day, so I don't know WHY I am not losing weight! Of course, I don't actually COUNT my calories, so I don't know for sure how many I eat a day. Maybe I should start counting.....
I also found this website which has a lot of information concerning your BMI (Body Mass Index) and how many calories equals a pound and what you need to do (based on caloric intake) to lose weight. THIS is a website that counts calorie's for you (I just found it...and if it is right, then maybe I AM eating all those calories in a day.....). All you have to do is put the name of the food in, it gives you options to make sure you are picking the right food, and BAM!!! Calorie counting the easy way! THIS website is one that I have just discovered. It looks like a great place to learn something.....AND it has a blog!
