Say i wanted to eat a total of 1200calories a day and ive consumed 900calories so far but burned 500calories would i i have to eat 300 more calories or 600 more to get to the total of 1200? I don't want to be under eating
It's very hard to calculate exact calorie intake and it's hard to keep track of it all. Are you trying to loose weight, gain weight, or tone? 1200 calories is a nice healthy intake for a woman your age. As long as you are eating the right amount of nutritious food at each meal, and you aren't skipping meals or over-eating until you feel bloated, you'll be fine. Make sure you balance your diet and exercise within reason there is really no need to count calories.
You would eat 300 more calories. Even though you burned off 500 you're still consuming the calories you'd eat....At least that is how I was taught. :p Hope this helped!
well i'm counting them because i have a bad habit of under eating even when i am overestimating the calories on the foods i am eating
