    fatty vs thinny :)

    hi everyone im not new to minimins but i am sort of new to calorie counting. i have calorie counted in the past here and there but have mainly done slimming world. i have become a little bored and have messed around on slimming world so im hoping counting calories will be easier as most products have calories on them.

    i know its very early saturday morning (01:43 ) but i will be weighing myself when i would normally get up on a saturday.

    so how is everyone doing? and how do you find calorie counting?

    ^^ Like it says, welcome!

    Personally I've found calorie counting really easy. It's straight mathematics basically...which means it works for me because it's so simple in my head:

    My weight = food in - calories burned
    So if food in is lower than calories burned, weight goes down!

    SIMPLE!

    Plus it's not restrictive like other diets. You can really eat whatever you want as long as you stay within your allowance.

    Have your worked out how many calories you should eat to get to a healthy weight? These sites might help:

    Calories required to lose weight: How Many Calories Do I Require To Lose Weight?

    Kj to calorie converter: Kilojoules to Calories (Nutritional) Conversion Calculator

    Calories in food: CalorieKing - Diet and weight loss. Calorie Counter and more

    A lot of people here use my fitness pal too

    Just ask if you have any questions, and good luck!

    I love calorie counting. Easy to do and simple to apply. Good luck
    Nothing is impossible. The word itself says, "I'm possible".

    hi everyone and a big thankyou for my very warming welcome.

    today was DAY 1. and its not been a bad day apart from me weighing in. my starting point is 13st 2lb. my calorie allowance per day to lose 1 lb per week is 1640 (worked out by myfitnesspal) my aim also is to work out 4 times per week. here is my food diary-
    breakfast - 600 ml skimmed milk, 35g oats, 60g blueberries, 1 medium banana = 478 cals
    lunch - 2 x weight watchers thick bread, 2 slices of beef and a small salad made into a buttie, 1 danone snack pot yogurt, 1 grapefruit = 373 cals

    then this aftenoon i went to the gym and walked around the shops etc 700 cals burnt off
    dinner - 200g steak with a large salad, and weight watchers desert = 806 cals
    snacks- 200g strawberries, 200g grapes = 193

    TOTAL CALS EATEN = 1850
    TOTAL CALS BURNT = 700
    i have eaten 210 cals more than i should so that taken away from my exercise calories leaves me with 500 cals extra to lose more weight

    there was a few times i felt peckish but this was down to puting other things first before me having my dinner so on the whole its been a great day and i am very pleased with myself im just hoping tomorrow goes the same way. i will pop round and have a look at peoples diaries now to see whats what and who is who take care and i hope everyones day has gone as good as mine
