...... recommended 2000 calories per day. If I ate that much, I would look like a balloon. I stay no more than 1000.
However, it did note that the count might not be optimal, and to be sure to weigh every day and adjust accordingly.
According to the site, I'm obese. I never though that would be the case. I see the Doc about six times a year, he weighs me, but never mentioned weight being a problem. Apparantley, according to the site, I need to be a bit more active. Other health problems keep me from doing much, but guess I better find a way. I'm going to mention the results to my Doc. I wonder what his response will be.
I think there can be quite a lot of variation
in weight due to bone density and muscle mass. I wouldn't go by that site. Anyway, they told me I needed 2500 calories.
What if it says
You're allowed no food intake for 6 months. Come back then and re-enter your weight.
None of your \%$&#* business!

I must have missed something ...
I found the recommendations for diet and such. It suggested I eat 2400 Cal/day. What I never did see was any information regarding what the program thought of my weight.
Where are y'all seeing that?
It's no big deal. I already know my BMI (~22) and I know what it does or does not mean. I'm just curious where y'all found it at the web site.
I don't always follow the nutritional advice. My nurse claims (maybe she's right) that I eat all the chocolate I want and cycle enough to burn it off.

Not sure if this answers the ?
At the link in post 1, after clicking Submit took me to a page that mentions "The weight you entered is above the healthy range for your height...." with
a "click here" link to more info explaining BMI, and links to
Body Mass Index
How does overweight or obesity affect my health?
What should I do if my BMI or waist measurement is too high?
I guess since my weight is healthy it didn't point me to that page.
is the best for you. I've read that milk chocolate has marginal nutritional value, and white has zero.
The more bitter...
the better for your health according to some "experts". I guess that goes to show that pure good cocoa without MUCH sugar is the best for you.
I'll take a bit more sugar in mine
I think it'll still be good for me, and I'll enjoy it more.
Supposed to lower blood pressure
M & Ms are available as dark chocolate. I tell my wife I'm just taking my BP medicine. Unfortunately, she read the same article I did and reminds me of the small dose that's recommended.
ALL chocolate is tasty, healthy and fun to eat
I heard that!
I like dark, semi-sweet chocolate the best ... well, actually that's not true. Dark semi-sweet is what I like to have around for everyday nibbling. What I REALLY like the best is dark chocolate truffles with creamy dark chocolate liquor centers. The problem is that I can't keep them around all the time. I eat them too fast and the good ones cost too much.
But milk chocolate, M&Ms, ... they're all good.
