If that's what MFP sets for a sedentary person of a certain weigh with a cert ain target.....are you arguing with the system?

I see what you're saying, but she is trying to get bigger (growth through cell division rather than weight gain) while MOST of us on here are trying to get smaller. And not everyone can work out to excess in order to take on loads of extra calories - for example my knees are shot so anything like running is a no no.

I think the amount MFP has set for me (a smidge over 1200) is a good amount - I can keep full by eating healthily and eat treats by exercising.

Oh, so this is the sort of bashing they were talking about.

Healthiest 20 M.O. in the history of the world. Chia seeds!

I hope to be this awesome some day, my kids will eat like this! ( I hope )

MFP doesn't set anyone at 1100. It won't go below 1200, and that's with the assumption that you will eat more if you exercise.

You don't need to run to eat extra calories and bad knees is a complete excuse...I have a torn ACL in my left knee and my sacrum is inflamed and I have permanent nerve damage in my right hip from falling off a horse, oh and I have a under active thyroid and I am pre menopause... need I go on ???..
I still eat over 2000 calories a day usually and I have dropped 3 pant sizes in the past 9 months

and YES we are arguing with the system because people do not follow it properly, they don't eat their exercise calories back.

and I assume you don't exercise right? because that 1200 is your NET, not your total. If you exercise you need to eat more.

that's the one massive flaw with MFP and I don't know why they haven't fixed it to make folks aware of that issue.

HA!! Awesome post!! But it will probably be followed with about a 100 'why are people on MFP so mean?' threads lol or the current fave 'Why are people such bullies on this site'. Brilliant though, I love it! bigsmile
January 31, 2013 7:42 AM
Wow, people really can't take things in the spirit they were meant in online. I can only imagine what would happen if people behaved this defensively face to face in a coffee shop. Hell, i could add another 1000 then, i'd be burning mad calories slappin stupid people if i was spoken to like some seem to. Smh

Lol. Yet, like moths to the flame, they will gravitate here and make accusations, even though no-one is forcing them to come on the thread and read it. smile

I think she should be on at least 2500 calories, lifting HEAVY 4 days a week, and doing zero cardio. It's the ONLY way she's going to grow up with a beach body. At 1100 calories you are setting here up for failure. She will have no energy, her hair will fall out, she will loose any muscle she may have been born with and will look skinny fat which we all know looks horrible.

The average toddler also takes more naps and probably sleeps longer at night.

Not looking to start a fight, but not all facts are necessarily presented
a) she's growing so her metabolism is working much faster
b) I bet she runs around all day playing burning way more calories than I do sitting at my desk for 10 hours

Just a couple of things that I feel that also need to be considered....


I would imagine at her daughters tiny weight, she is still expending less energy than a person carrying 100-200lbs of weight on their body... I could be wrong though.


Her daughter is growing *every* day in some form. Brain development, organ development, height, weight. etc. She actually is expanding much more energy than you think.

Which is why, OP, I totally get what you're trying to do... but it's a biiiiit of a fallacy.



The fallacy would be if the OP said you weigh 5X what my daughter does so you should eat 5X (i.e. 5,500 calories). Saying that you weigh 5X as much as her daughter so you probably need more than 1,100 calories isn't really a fallacy.

I sit at a desk all day and on days I don't work out I can still eat well over 1,100 (or 1,200 thx MFP) calories and still lose some weight, just not all in one day and if I lose it at a slower pace I'll feel better during the process and am less likely to give up. When I was stupidly trying to stick to 1200 calories/day even with eating back my exercise calories I would get burnt out and give up after about a week or completely binge on weekends and undo any progress I had made during the week.
