For the past 4 weeks I have been tracking my weight and every morsel that passes my lips. I have calculated and recalculated my daily calorie needs and now it’s time for a little test. From the fourth week data I have averaged my weight against calorie intake to arrive at a figure of 2820 calories a day for weight maintenance. I have designed a 5 meal a day plan that provides adequate protein and just under 1800 calories a day. In seven days, staying strictly to the plan, I should lose exactly 2 pounds, give or take 500 calories worth. The worst case scenario is that I learn something new.

Here is the planned diet:

  1. I really enjoy your methodical scientific approach. I don’t know if you take meds, have high stress levels, get enough quality sleep, etc… that also effect weight management. The results will be interesting.
