I just made my first post on SparkPeople regarding my calorie crisis. Soooo, here's the question I posted:
I'm trying to go on a low-carb diet and exercise twice a day, in the morning for around an hour and in the afternoon for around 1hr 30 mins. I know that sounds extreme, but I want to get serious about this. The problem I'm having is how many calories do I eat to sustain this weightloss? I use those calculators that tell me how much to eat based upon how much I want to lose, but those never seem to be accurate esp b/c I'll be doing double-duty in working out.
I know if i eat too few calories, I could be sabotaging myself... can someone help me?
Your help is very much appreciated!!
What do you think? Any suggestions?
So far the responses have been:

I guess I would consider this amount of exercise to be very active, but it's saying I need to consume around 2200-2500 cals a day, that can't seem right. How is it on the BL they only consume 1500 cals and exercise 8 hrs a day! what the....
Also, just went onto a body fat calculator and it says I'm about 44% body fat. Excelllllent!
