    For once I understand how to read the back the nutrition facts. Lol yay!...ok so i was under the impression that if a bag of chips contains 150 calories(that would be all I was consuming)..ummm wrong!..My mom showed me today that you have to multiply the servings per container by the calories. hold on let me go get the bag.....ok so yeah I was right so you multiply your calories by the serving per container. For instance in  the kettle brand potato chips "backyard barbeque" it has 150 calories the serving per container is 5....the whole bag contains "drum roll" 750 calories(i know right shocker) get 150 calories you would have to eat about 13 chips..who eats 13 chips??? be careful because I thought a 150 calories was listed for the whole bag.....but i wasnt tripping because I am sort of trying to gain a little

    The only need of counting calories are for those who cannot control their own weight. Otherwise, it's meaningless. smile

    Good looking Lissajean!

    To determine your exact calorie intake:

    1.3 Cal x 12 hours x desired weight.
    For me, I need 3,120 calories a day for normal health.

    To see how much energy you use or need to use:
    multiply .00035 calories p/sec x desired weight. Mine is 252 cal per/hour that I burn during normal activity.

    Well, it looks like I need 1,950 calories a day. I probablly go way over it but I count my WEight Wathcher points. 

    I can't get the calories to burn thing. When I got my answer, it was .04375.   I guess that means I should burn 458 calories per hour to get my ideal weight? (125 lbs)
