|My Current BMI|
This week, I decided to start counting calories. I won't do this permanently, but I need to gauge just how many I am consuming on average. Last Friday, I figured out my body mass index (BMI) and then what my daily caloric intake should be if I want to lose one pound a week. You can check yours at WebMD.
I have a healthy BMI, but you can always be healthier and I could stand to shed a few inches around my tummy and thighs. If you take a look at the graphic above, you will see that there are actually tabs across the top and one reads, "Your Calories." If you complete the profile - it is FREE - then it will figure your BMI and tell you how many calories you should consume to lose weight. It looks like I am going to be eating 1700 calories a day. So far today, I've had 300, so I'm getting off to a good start :)
Have you checked your BMI lately?
