Portion control is the key to losing weight and keeping it off!  Here is a good formula to help you figure out your caloric intake!  

DETERMINING YOUR NUTRITIONAL NEEDS 

We’ve developed the following caloric parameters based on a combination of your BMI, sex (male/female), and your activity level.  However, nothing is more important than listening to your body’s needs and using common sense to determine appropriate caloric intake levels, especially as workouts grow in both intensity and duration.  You must be willing to be flexible, and at set points in your program (i.e., 6-weeks, 12-weeks, 18-weeks), it’s extremely important that you take the time to re-calculate your BMI and make sure you’re on the correct path to UltraFitness.

Activity Level Descriptions:

1) Sedentary activity: mainly sitting at a desk all day. Rarely experiences any physical activity throughout the day. Burns few calories.

2) Light Activity: continuous exercise such as walking approximately 3 times per week for approximately 20 minutes each session. If not involved in regular activity, may be on your feet all day through work (e.g., working as a waitress). Daily activities may include regular walking. 

3) Moderate Activity: continuous exercise 3 or more times per week for more than 20 minute sessions. Walking at a brisk pace, dancing, working in the yard, jogging, swimming, etc. 

4) Heavy Activity: continuous exercise 3 to 5 times per week for approximately 60 minute sessions. Involves lots of physical activity for an extended period and may include heavy labor jobs such as construction.

5) Extremely Heavy Activity: continuous exercise 5 or more times per week for sessions lasting 60 minutes or more. Involves lots of physical activity for an extended period and may include heavy labor jobs such as construction.
