    Steph's attempts at calorie counting

    I've been calorie counting for about 5 days now, I was on slimming world up until then but I've gone gluten free and am struggling to fit that in with SW. I haven't been massively hungry and have definitely NOT been eating the best foods but I'm sticking with 1250 and will be eating my usual healthy stuff once I've got my head around gluten free.

    B
    Snack a jacks - 128

    L
    Home made leek and potato soup -150

    D
    Quorn chicken curry w/ 50g long grain rice. Only had 1/2 the rice so added a bit of milk and sugar after - 385

    Snacks
    Cream egg :0 feels veery naughty to eat this even though its in cals - 175
    2 sips of dr pepper-46
    Cranberry juice - 130

    I put in my stroll to Uni on mfpI'm very wary of going under 1200 that's the only reason.

    948 cals- no idea how I'm supposed to fit any more food in, 252 under :| may have a hot choc and banana later.

    Hello Steph

    I sometimes find it difficult to make up the calories in a day and wonder how on earth I ever managed to go over them to begin with?! I have a limit of 1,400 but usually aim for around the same as yourself.

    I had a few days this week of feeling really hungry and am also blaming it on my * week. Just been trying to fill up on water and fruit!!

    Good luck with your weight loss journey


    http://www.minimins.com/calorie-coun...yle-quest.html << MY FOOD/LIFE DIARY

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOV8_NH4nLU << ABOUT ME VIDEO (Originally made for a facebook group I am part of so a bit of wig talk at the start haha)





    2013 = 2st 1lb loss (14st 4lb to 12st 3lb)

    2014 start weight: 12st 3lb

    Weigh ins:
    10/1= 12st
    7/2 = 11st 7lbs
    7/3 = 11st 7lbs
    4/4 =
    2/5 =
    30/5=
    27/6=
    25/7=
    22/8=
    19/9=
    17/10=
    14/11=
    12/12=


    (Mini goals: 1 - get into the 11s again! 2 - Fit comfortably into size 14 trousers! 3 - Get into the 10s! 4 - Fit comfortably into size 12 trousers!)

    Slow & steady wins the race!

    Hi and Thanks for popping in I'm the same, really happy with my amount except today. its insane the amount you can fit into 1250 cals! I just hope I can get good results as I really do enjoy calorie counting. I'm drinking as much water as possible to beat the bloat and fill me up too, this is always the worst week of a diet. Do you find you have good losses with that amount? Some people say its too low x
