I forgot a few things in my calorie log for yesterday. I added them and my calories were over 1400. That's over the CICO total my little fitness tracker app says I should get each day (they say 1200 if I want to lose a pound a week.)
ItsTheWooo says that on low carb she can eat way way over her base metabolic calories and lose weight/stay skinny (and she is way skinnier than I think would ever be possible for me). She says: "My RMR was measured at a ridiculous 1000-1100 calories (yes sthat bad!) yet I am losing body fat eating over 1800 calories". She doesn't hardly exercise at all. That's pretty amazing.
If I hold steady at 135lbs at 100g of carbs a day and 1000-1500 calories, and I exercise an hour a day most days, it would be interesting to see what happens if I raise calories to 1800 and go super low carb. Would I have similar results to her?
