Confused....

Ok - I just did a free analysis to see how many calories I should be eating if I want to lose weight... it said 1594 as long as I do moderate activity... so I am still a little confused... if I work out hard and burn say, 700 calories... do I add those calories on, to a 2294 calorie intake (I think this is what Traner Momma says) or do I count that as a deficit so that I lose the weight? 1500 calories seems like plenty!

It confuses me to. I am not sure. I don't add them, unless I am really hungry during the day. From the times that I have done it to the times that I haven't I have not seen a big difference in my weightloss. Fifteen Hundred is a lot. Lucky!

LOL - it IS a lot, I still havn't gotten in that many yet.... ;)
Thanks - I think I will just eat what it says to and not add in more too. When I recalcullated with "light" activity instead of moderate it said 1394 calories so it seems to me they already calculate in the exercise for you!
