Much of what my diet plan does is reduce calorie-counting to estimations. We’re going to estimate almost everything we do.
Frankly, this happens anyhow. Calorie counts on food packaging are usually off the mark anyhow. And, exercising uses calories are highly varying rates, depending on what kind of exercise you do, how long you do it, and how much you weigh.
I’ll try to give you tricks to keep the raw numbers to a dull roar. The whole idea of using coins is based upon an estimation: it takes roughly ten calories to maintain each pound of body weight. But, it is known that this estimate is a little high. The diet tries to make up for that by adjusting itself over time.
So, prepare for some small amount of math (estimating). I’ll do my best to make it easy to understand.
