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:

  1. Multiply your current weight in pounds x 11. This number is your Caloric Baseline.
  2. 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.
  3. Subtract 750 (the caloric deficit) from your Caloric Needs. This number is the Caloric Target you should eat for weight loss.
  4. 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:

  1. 150 x 11 = 1650 (Caloric Baseline)2. 1650 + 400 = 2050 (Caloric Needs to maintain weight)3. 2050 – 750 =  1300 (Caloric Target for weight loss)

Now that you know your calorie bracket, select the meal plan that is right for you.

    I’m interested in buying the bracket plan that fits my needs. I’ve tried purchasing ebooks before and the recipes required a lot of steps and the recipes were delicious. But I noticed I don’t follow thru. Are the recipe will easy to fix?

    • Jessica says:
      February 1, 2017 at 2:58 am

      Hi Michelle! The recipes are all super simple. There is one jambalaya recipe that is a little more complicated, but the rest are easy enough for me to make while taking care of a 2 year old and 2 month old lol

    Hi Jessica, are the recipes for 21 days or a weekly meal plan. Also I’m allergic to nuts and fish products, do you recipes include many of thee types of recipes

    • Jessica says:
      February 11, 2017 at 9:28 pm

      Hi Candice. The meal plan is weekly for 3 weeks, totaling 21 days. So there are 21 full days of meals broken up in to 3 weeks. I emailed you a second ago, hopefully that will help 🙂

    Hi, do you have a meal plan with only vegetarian options. Egg is fine but no seafood.. thanks!

    • Jessica says:
      February 16, 2017 at 6:56 pm

      Hi Rashmi. Unfortunately, I do not have a vegetarian version at the moment. However, it is definitely something I can work on!

    Hello. I stumbled across your pinterest while looking for ideas to eat better. I became a beachbody coach because a person told me to do it that way. Never heard back from her therefore I didnt follow the 21 day nor have I done my T25. I am ready and need a jumpstart on ideas because I dont have time to look up ideas and go to the market. I always end up buying stuff that I dont end up doing anyway. Is this part of the 21 day fix?

      Hi Colleen! You should have also gotten a download link in your email that is linked to your PayPal account (may have gone to spam). If you didn’t get it, email me at jessica@easylivingtoday.com with your invoice number and calorie bracket and I’ll get it taken care of.

    I have your 21 day meal plan and I love! Do you have a second 3 week plan? This plan has changed my world! I no longer have to rush home stressed about what I’m going to cook…it’s already decided! Grocery shopping was a breeze and I save money! Thank you! I’d just love another month of meals!

    • Jessica says:
      March 25, 2017 at 2:08 am

      Yay! I’m so glad you like it! I am planning to write another meal plan very soon. Right now I’m working on a free booty building exercise plan that I’ll have out next week. Once that’s settled I’ll start working on new meal plans 🙂

      Nice!! Congratulations! I’m so proud of you! I’m working on the second plan, it’ll be here soon 🙂

    How soon do you recommend starting this postpartum? I understand checking in with doctor for the exercise but what about for the meal plans?What if you’re breastfeeding and feel you need to eat more? Is that a good place for healthy snacks to come in?

    Thank you so much! This is my first pregnancy, I started at 162 and have gained almost 60lbs and I am so determined to get back in shape!

  • Jessica says:
    April 11, 2017 at 3:54 pm

    Hi Patricia! You can start when you feel ready to cook or if someone can prepare it for you. If you are breast feeding, I would recommend going up a calorie bracket to make up for the extra calories you will need so you don’t risk your milk drying up (your doctor can also give you an idea about how many calories you should be eating, not just exercise). You also want to make sure you have enough energy to keep up with your newborn. Congrats, by the way! So exciting! Make sure you get lots of rest and listen to your body 🙂

  • Patricia says:

    Hi need a little extra help. I am raising my grandchild who is vegetarian. Is there a meal plan to accommodate vegetarians?

    • Jessica says:
      May 31, 2017 at 3:08 pm

      Hi! Unfortunately, I do not have a vegetarian meal plan yet but am working on one.

  • Rocelia Lewis says:

    Hi 🙂 I’m two months pregnant and I’m dying here. I have gained 8 pounds so far. I’m extremely bloated and I feel soooo uncomfortable and bloated. I’m looking to change this. It’s my third pregnancy and I want to do this one differently. I think you mentioned you did bracket 2. Is this that true one you recommend for first trimester?

    • Jessica says:
      June 17, 2017 at 10:27 pm

      That is the one I did, but make sure you talk to your doctor first and ask them how many calories they recommend for your pregnancy/body. Because it varies on how your pregnancy is going. Are you exercising at all? Staying active (if you can) definitely helps too!

    Do I need to purchase the 21 Day Fix Base on Amazon that you posted? Do I need all the things in the kit are can they all be found on Pintrest? I don’t know if I should buy the kit or try to do it without the kit? Also, what if the exercises are too hard for a 235 lb. fifty year old woman?? Please advise.

    • Jessica says:
      June 26, 2017 at 2:33 pm

      Hi. You don’t need to purchase the kit in order to do the meal plan. The meal plan will work on it’s own or with the 21 Day Fix exercise program, so it’s completely up to you! If you do decide to order it and feel like it’s too hard, you can definitely return it. I believe you get 30 days to return.

    Hi Jess! I just purchased your meal plan and I was just wondering if there is not a specified serving beside a food (1/2cup) what should we use as a portion size? Thanks!

    • Jessica says:
      July 25, 2017 at 4:06 pm

      Hey Jessica! All of the recipes say how many servings it makes, so if it makes 4 servings, 1/4 of the entire thing will be your portion 🙂 . Always feel free to email me with questions (Jessica@easylivingtoday.com) or join our FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fitbeforesummer/

    Hi My pp weight is 200 im 3 months pp with m 2nd and dying to weigh 140 pounds again.

    But it says I need a calorie intake of 1850 is that right? And do I need to follow a specific gym plan I have a memebership to la fitness and plan on going 5x a week I met with a trainer and I know I need to strength train more than cardio from What there telling me

    • Jessica says:
      October 24, 2017 at 10:23 am

      Hi Nadia! Congrats on your new baby!! Yes, that is correct. To maintain your current weight you would be eating about 2650 calories a day, so 1850 will put you at a calorie deficit as long as you are exercising as you plan to- if you’re not exercising then you would eat about 400 calories less a day. But the best results come from both exercise and eating well.

  • Jamie says:

    Hey! I just bought your meal plan. I will be cooking dinner for my husband as well. Will I need to buy more ingredients to double the dinners to feed him or will it make enough for two. The serving sizes mostly say 3-4 but it looks like sometimes there is leftovers eaten the next day or two?

    • Jessica says:
      December 1, 2017 at 10:50 pm

      Hi Jamie! I would just take a quick glance at the week and how often the recipe is being eaten (if you’re supposed to eat leftovers) and then the serving size. If the serving size matches up with the amount you would need to eat for the week, you wouldn’t need to buy extra. For most recipes, I don’t see you needing to buy extra though- especially since most of the ingredients already come with plenty (for example, if you have to buy cheese you are likely buying a pack of cheese that would already have enough to add extra if needed). But definitely glance at it each week to see. I hope that made sense!
