How to Calculate Your Calorie Bracket
Some people are fine consuming 1,200 calories a day, but other people need more or they risk their body going in to starvation mode and actually holding on to fat.
That is why it is important to calculate your calorie bracket before picking a meal plan.
To find out what bracket you are in, you will use this calculation:
- Multiply your current weight in pounds x 11. This number is your Caloric Baseline.
- Add 400 (What you are burning from working out, if you are not working out- skip this step) to your Caloric Baseline. The resulting number represents your Caloric Needs to maintain your weight.
- Subtract 750 (the caloric deficit) from your Caloric Needs. This number is the Caloric Target you should eat for weight loss.
- If your Caloric Target is less than 1,200, round up to 1,200. If it’s more than 2,300, round down to 2,300. If you are trying to gain weight, add 750 instead of subtracting 750.
Example of a 150 lb person with a goal of weight loss:
- 150 x 11 = 1650 (Caloric Baseline)2. 1650 + 400 = 2050 (Caloric Needs to maintain weight)3. 2050 – 750 = 1300 (Caloric Target for weight loss)

Exercise Program for Even Better Results
If you’re looking for an exercise program to speed up your progress, I highly recommend the 21 Day Fix.
You can see my results from my first 21 days following this meal plan along with this 21 Day Fix exercise program by clicking here.
The exercises are only 30 minutes each day but pack a lot of punch! They are also easy to follow while burning a lot of calories.
Before I started this program, I could spend an hour at the gym and burn less than I would in 30 minutes of doing this program.
You will see results fast when you pair this meal plan with this exercise program.
Please share your results after completing the full 21 days 🙂
