To calculate your calorie needs, we'll need your height, weight, age, and how much you work out.  Let us know if you're breastfeeding as well!

You're not eating enough, mama!

If you'd like, we can calculate how many calories a day you need.  Even if you opt not to track your calories every day, having a sense of how much you should be eating is really helpful.  Eating small amounts every 3 hours or so will help keep your blood sugar more even, but you need more than you're eating now.

BMR: 1451 (MINIMUM number of calories you should be consuming per day)

1451 x 1.55 = 2249 (maintenance calories at your current weight, age, height, fitness)

2249 - 500 = 1749 (to create a calorie deficit)

To lose 1-2 lbs per week, consume 1451-1749 calories per day.

We just ask about the breastfeeding because if you were, it affects how many calories you should consume.  =)
