YOUR PERFECT WEIGHT: get there and stay there!
--Determine your ideal size with our body-analysis guide--
by: Julie Upton, R.D.
Of all the numbers you carry around in your head- security codes, credit cards, gym lock combinations -- there's one series of digits that probably drives you crazy. Not because it's hard to remember-- in fact, you could never forget it. This number represents your ever-elusive perfect weight. If only your could achieve it -and stay there- you're certain you'd be better in bed, more confident in meetings, sexier and sassier in jeans, and in every way 10 times happier that you are right at this minute.
There's no single formula for predicting an exact down-to-the-decimal weight for every woman alive, but there are certain guidelines you can use to set a realistic weight loss goal.
You know the drill: To lose weight, you have to consume fewer calories than you burn. And to do that, you need to know your metabolic rate - the amount of calories you burn throughout the day. 'Most women have a metabolic rate of just under 1 calorie per minute, or about 1,440 calories per day,' says David Nieman, P.h.D., a nutritionist and exercise professor at Appalachian State University.
A. Your Weight in pounds ___
B. Multiply A by 11 to get your basic calorie needs (how much your body burns just by existing) ___
C. Multiply B by 1.6 to estimate your resting metabolic rate (rate of calorie burn when you factor in daily activities) ___
D. Aerobic Training - Multiply the number of minutes per week that you run, cycle or play sports by 8 ___
E. Strength Training - If you're doing a total body exercise plan, add 600 to your answer from D. If you're doing 3 sets, add 840 to your answer from D. ___
F. Divide that by 7 ___
YOUR CALORIE NEEDS
G. Add C and F to get your daily calorie needs ___
H. If you're happy with your weight stop here.
Otherwise, subtract 500 from G ___
This is your estimated daily calorie budget if you want to lose 1 lb per week. Subtract 1,000 to lose 2 lbs per week. Anything more and you'll be losing more muscle than fat.
