Compute Trend

Once you've collected a couple of weeks of daily weight readings you can compute the weight trend, chart the progress of the trend, and interpret the chart as described in chapter 7. We began with a rough estimate of the number of calories to achieve an intended weight goal. The trend figures and chart express reality: what actually happened. By fitting a straight line to the trend, you obtain the actual calorie shortfall or excess, based on your own body's true rate of burning calories, not a number picked from some table.
