HOW IT WORKS
First, calculate your base calories. Then gradually increase or decrease your calories depending on your goals.

DATA LIES. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY.
Based on the Mifflin – St Jeor equation, this calorie calculator will provide you with a rough estimate of how many calories you will need to gain or loose weight. When starting out we recommend loosing 1 lbs. or less per week. Taking it slow is the best way to know how your body will respond to the change and give you time to get use to the new meal plan and active lifestyle. Simply, don't try to act like a level 100 when you are a level 1. That's how you get hurt.
SELECT A MEAL PLAN
EATING RIGHT IS 90% OF FITNESS
Based on the calculator, select a meal plan that you think will work best for your goals. We recommend gradual caloric changes. So, pick a starting meal plan, then adjust every few weeks if results stall. Remember, weight will fluctuate each day, so if you weigh more one day then the previous day, don't freak out. We recommend tracking your weight everyday then average the total weight for the week.
ONCE YOU START IT WILL BECOME AN ADDICTION
Each meal plan is designed with the user going to the gym three times per week. Now you can go more and substitute in a workout day for a rest day's meals. We just figured 3 days a week would be a good start, but if you can do more go for it! Just don't burn yourself out, take it slow and get use to going; Then slowly increase the frequency. We can promise you that after a few weeks the gym will be as addicting as your favorite video game. You won't be able to stop going once you start seeing results.
