Calculating Your Calorie Deficit
While dieting with V3 it is helpful to understand how many calories you need to be taking in daily in order to lose weight. Your caloric intake to lose weight is determined by first calculating your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) which is defined as the number of calories burned when your body is in a complete resting state with no activity whatsoever other than normal bodily functions such as respiration, circulation of blood, etc. It is calculated this way:
Women: BMR = 655+(4.35 x weight in lbs.) + (4.7 x height in inches) – (4.7 x age)
Men: BMR = 66 + (6.23 x weight in lbs.) + (12.7 x height in inches) – (6.8 x age)
Next you need to calculate your Active Metabolic Rate (AMR). This is determined by using one of the multipliers below and multiplying it times your BMR.
Choose the appropriate level of activity to find the correct multiplier and find your required number of daily calories.
Eve weighs 140lbs., is 5′ – 8” tall, is 35 years old, and participates in light activity on average.
BMR=655+(4.35 x weight in lbs.)+(4.7 x height in inches)–(4.7 x age)
= 655+(4.35 x 140)+(4.7 x 68)–(4.7 x 35)
= 1419.1 calories/day
AMR = BMR x Activity Multiplier
= 1419.1 x 1.375 = 1951.26 calories/day
In other words, Eve’s caloric intake per day to maintain her current weight with her level of activity is 1951 calories. In order for Eve to lose weight, she must create a calorie deficit by reducing her caloric intake, increasing her activity level, or both.
Ideally, losing 1-2 pounds per week is considered healthy. Losing more than this risks your losing lean mass rather than just fat. Creating a calorie deficit of 500 -1000 calories per day should result in a loss of 1-2 pounds per week for most. In Eve’s case, 951 to1451 calories per day would be her caloric intake to lose weight.
Alternatively, Eve could increase her activity level to moderate which has an activity multiplier of 1.55. So there would be 1419.1 x 1.55 = 2199.61 or approximately 2200 calories required to maintain her current weight. If her calories consumed did not change from her usual 1951 calories per day, she would create a calorie deficit of 2200 – 1951 = 249 calories per day from new level of activity. This increase in activity alone would not create enough of a deficit to cause Eve to shed pounds as effectively as reducing her daily intake. However, both methods can be implemented simultaneously to effectively lose the desired 1–2 pounds per week. The most effective results will come from reducing your caloric intake while increasing your activity level.
V3 from Voyager Health Technologies helps with both of these requirements by giving you appetite control to reduce your caloric intake while giving you the energy needed for calorie-burning activity. With this amazing dietary supplement, exercising portion control to successfully create the needed deficit in calories to shed the weight is now easier than ever! And that’s exciting news if you have failed time after time like most of us. I urge you not to get discouraged over your past failures. Instead give it another go with V3 and see just how much easier it is to ignore the desire to give in and stuff yourself with those addictive carbs. Feel the energy level throughout the day while maintaining the best of moods. Don’t suffer trying to starve yourself. Instead feel GOOD while you lose weight with just one V3 capsule a day and finally see your dieting efforts pay off!
Monitoring Your Progress
Be sure to monitor your progress but don’t compare your results to someone else’s. Know that everyone’s body will not respond exactly the same as our metabolisms differ. Also, don’t be overly concerned with minor weight fluctuations each day. Use an entire week to compare results. To minimize inaccuracies in weighing, weigh yourself just out of bed each morning and after you’ve relieved your bladder – fully undressed. Healthy weight loss should be a gradual process over time and you want your weigh-in results to reflect this. However, some minor adjustments may need to be made to your activity level and/or daily caloric intake to lose weight as close as possible to the desired 1-2 lb per week rate.
