What’s the formula behind?
Total Energy Expenditure (TEE) – The amount of calories that your body expends in basal status (let’s say if you lay in bed 24 hours without moving, your body will expend that)
Daily Calories Intake (DCI) – The amount of calories that we put in our system through our daily food intake.
Intentional Calorie Expenditure (ICE) – The amount of burned calories on a structured physical activity. Doesn’t count ride to work.
TEE – DCI – ICE = Daily Calorie Outcome (could be deficit or positive)
Age: 30 y.o
T.E.E.: 1800 calories
Calorie Intake: 1500 calories diet
I.C.E: 300 calories burned during 45-60 minutes of exercise.
Applying the formula: 1800 – 1200 – 300 = -800 calories in deficit
Maintaining a deficit of 800 calories per day, it means 5600 calories deficit per week. You will lose 0,5-1 kg per week.
What’s the structure?
You will complete 6 workouts per week and this is the structure:
Three times a week of 45 minutes of vigorous exercise. Examples: HIIT, Boxing Class, Personal Training, Weightlifting, climbing …
Three times a week of 60 minutes of cardiovascular exercises. Examples: walking, cross trainer, running, cycling, swimming, rowing, hiking …
How to keep you motivated and accountable?
I believe that the best motivation is to keep yourself accountable of success and fail, to set your intentions and to tick off from your plan. There are two components to keep under control: nutrition and exercise.
a. Nutrition: highly recommended the smartphone app my fitness Pal is an intuitive/user friendly software that will help you to set your goal, to keep track of the calorie intake and to give you daily and weekly reports.
b. Exercise: design a table of 7 columns by 4 rows. It will give you 28 squares to plan ahead your workouts and tick off once you finish it. Also it will allow you to review it every week and to make improvements for the next one.
