Eat More When You Exercise?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Center

A friend forwarded me an post about whether or not a person should eat more on the days that they exercise.  It said that most of us don't exercise enough to justify extra calories.  But, here is the general guideline:  Multiply your weight by 13.  The total is how many calories you should eat daily, whether you are not exercising at all or if you are working out moderately for an hour or less.  On days that you exercise more than an hour, add 100 to 200 calories per additional hour. So, if you took a two hour hike, add 150 calories to a snack or meal that day.  If your energy level is flagging during a particularly active week, try adding more protein to breakfast (a scoop of cottage cheese or an egg) and snacks (a handful of almonds, string cheese).

That sounds like a lot of calculating Kristin, I generally just excersize and then let the chips fall where they may.

I have just started walking every morning for an hour with Bud around our community, it is great exercise in the morning and ensures that we will work up an appetite.

I'm now eating about 200 more calories a day than I was when I first started exercising again a year ago. But, I also can say everyone of those calories is protein, but I also am exercising about an hour to two a day.

It is possible to "eat through" any exercise program by not watching what you eat. I know because I've done it!

That is great advice, Krisin.  While I am not a fan of cottage cheese, I can eat eggs made just about any way.

I try to watch what I eat everyday, but when your working you need a little extra intake of good food.

Good luck and success.
