Hi guys.

Apologies if this has been posted before! Found this and thought id share it on here as im finding it really useful! Its a calorie calculator really similar to mfps 'in 5 weeks you will weigh' feature, but tells you what your weight should be every week if you have a certain amount of calories per day.

Hope it helps!

What? If you're set to lose 1 pound per week then just count the weeks... why do you need a web site to calculate this for you?
June 21, 2012 5:07 AM
This is neat, thanks so much for posting it!! I won't be at my goal by my birthday next January but I'll be darn close. Amazing!

I checked it out, and it's a good general estimate for those just starting out. I like MFP as I add exactly what I do as calorie burn and track it closely. I'm sure the results would be close to the same.

This is great, I estimated It would take me a certain amount of time to drop to a certain weight and it will. I love it... printed it off and going to check each Thursday.

Thanks a million x

Didn't work so well for me. I eat 1600/day, but exercise off about 400. So do they consider that light activity? Or moderate? For me, that's just working (I stand/walk all day) and housework - I get lots more exercise calories when I actually put effort in. I tried it with 1600/day at light and moderate activity and 1200 with sedentary and got completely different results each time. Makes me wonder.

Wow, what an eye opener, to see how the deficit can potentially decrease so substantially with the same calories is good to know. This will help me set goals. Thank you.

It seems a little more complicated than that. It calculates the changing calorie needs and deficits as you lose weight. So if you weigh 250lb you need a certain deficit to lose 2lb, but if you weigh 125lb you would have different calculations. As you lose, your calculations change.
June 21, 2012 5:21 AM
Woohoo! One year from today I'll be back to my anorexic high school weight of 103! (Obviously not going there, espeically since I am only .2 lbs away from goal, so really I'm just in maintenence right now)
June 21, 2012 5:23 AM
This is awesome! Thank You :)
June 21, 2012 5:23 AM
Intrigued.... it says February for me, I'm looking forward to seeing if it happens!!!
June 21, 2012 5:23 AM
This is awesome!!! Thanks!!!

I really like this. Thank you for sharing!

Thanks for posting - it seems pretty accurate as my weight loss is very slow and sometimes masked by water weight. Nice to see when I could arrive at goal if I keep making healthy choices.
June 21, 2012 5:25 AM
EHR MER GERD! I'M GONNA BE 43 POUNDS IN JUNE OF 2014!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your calorie needs would change, yes, but as long as you maintain a consistent deficit your rate of loss should not change. It's simple math. Actually no, it's simple counting.
