Exercise and UD's
Hi All!!

I've started working out too (at least 3 days per week). I checked the calculator withmy current weight and inputted that I exercise 1 to 3 days per week. My UD numbers went up. Is this a good idea?? :dunno:

Hi! Most of us leave it at little or no exercise. If you're doing near marathon exericising, you might want to up it. :lol:

:welcome: :hiya: Lisa,

Most of us do not add the exercise in to the calculations. However, as you JUDDD, you will be able to see if it seems to be working fine or if you need to up your calories in order to get the magic going. I have a difficult time eating to my UD calories when I work out because I feel so bloated. As a matter of fact, I kind of like the lower number.

Keep track of your weight and cals on a spreadsheet and this will help you to figure out which way you should move calorie wise to get the best benefit. Best wishes to you! :up:

I run a mile a day, and I keep my calories lower. I dont want to eat what I "worked off" so I can hopefully drop below my current weight. That being said, I also like knowing that on days I am busy and mis-calculate my calories I do know I have a little cushion!!! There have been a few times that I was wrong with my math and that cushion saved me from doing the old, "well since I screwed up already" routine!!!
