How many calories do you consume daily?

My doctor told me I need to consume about 6,000-7,000 calories a day! The magic of swimming - you get to eat a lot!

I'm not entirely sure, but it is definitely in the 3,000-5,000 range. Although I do exercise regularly, drink plenty of water and I also work out whenever I get the chance, so there's no chance of me getting fat. :P

I do not worry about counting calories, life is too shot for that. I focus on eating nutrient dense food, when I eat food I think about the nutrients it offers rather than the amount of calories it contains. If a nutrient dense food happens to be calorific, I don't care.

I don't keep track of my caloric intake anymore. I recently learned that calories don't really matter. As long as you're eating healthy foods, you can have as many calories as you want. A thousand calories worth of nuts is healthier than a 200 calorie Hershey's milk chocolate bar.

Eat well. Sleep well and ensure you at least walk a mile or two a day.

I'm consuming 2040 kcal per day for this week. I'm on weight loss plan now. 

Next week it should be a little bit more, may be 2100 or 2200. 

My calorie intake changes every week (it's based on Minus Pound diet plan).

As long as you're eating healthy foods, you can have as many calories as you want.

 

Quite simply not true. If a person eats more cals than they burn, they will gain fat. Period.

 

Say a person burns 2500 cals a day, and eats a diet of pure garbage, fast food, candy, and chips, but this garbage only totals 2500 cals per day, their weight will stay the same. If they only eat 2300 cals of junk, they will actually lose weight.

 

On the other hand, say a person eats like a complete healthfood freak (like me :) and they burn 3800 cals a day. If that person (or I) eat 4000 cals a day, they will gain fat ! This was a lesson that I had to prove to myself, first hand. Because believe me, I can eat a truckload of healthy food, and arive at whatever # of cals I'm shooting for. I have an endless appetite.... which is good, as I'd like to build as much muscle mass as humanly posible for my age and genetics.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The only difference that healthy food over junk food will make, is that the person will likely feel better, have more energy, have a stronger immune system, and "posibly" live longer.

 

Peace,

Fish
