Thank you everyone for your input. Karin, you are correct. I calculated incorrectly. LaRue, I agree. This individual’s goal is to reduce her weight by 20-25 pounds at a healthy rate of 1-2 pounds/week. She is aware that this may not be realistic the more her body reduces down. She is involved in aerobic activity 3-5 times a week. I have not been one that has been concerned so much about net calories clients consume but rather in maintaining energy exerted to be in excess of energy taken in. There are several schools of thought on net calories which is why I approached you all.
