    I. Must. Calorie. Count

    After trying most diets under the sun, but never really sticking well to any of them, I'm gonna give calorie counting a go...! Heavier than I have ever been, surely the only way is down!!

    I have downloaded MFP and have been pretty good over the weekend, however the plan is to be mega strict as of Monday. Any hints/tips/support will be more than welcome...!

    Onwards and downwards...x

    Good luck!

    Play around with the times you have food to suit you , make a plan eg 200 cal for breakfast how many for tea and dinner but remember if you change it up it doesn't matter as long as you don't go over your limit!

    Have snacks between meals i recommend 3x 100 cals, remember you can have anything you like ..... You just have to choose between that 400 cal chocolate bar or a full meal!

    Thanks tink...snacks seem like a good plan and I suppose it will take a bit of playing about for a wee while!

    I struggle to think of creative evening meals. I'm happy enough having the same for brekkie and lunch but need variety in the evenings. Past chilli, stir fry and baked potatos, my imagination runs out...

    Thanks x

    You can have pretty much anything you want, but it might be a small portion I tend to have things with salad or veg in the evenings. Chicken and seafood are low calorie, red meat is higher, but I make sure I eat all 3 over the course of the week.

    I had paella for lunch this morning, chorizo in red wine yesterday and I know I've got a spicy chicken with peppers lined up for Monday. I think tonight's duck in a soy sauce marinade. Sky is pretty much the limit as long as you keep a handle on calorie count. Often it's not the main part of the meal but what goes with it that will tip it over.

    Thanks Moog! Your right, just takes a different way of thinking. Your suggestions sound fab!

    I have spend today getting organised for the week. Some porridge and fruit for brekkie. Chilli chicken salad for lunch (just about to have this the now) and some cooked chicken, cottage cheese (I honestly love this stuff!) and salad for dinner. Got a few wee snacks organised for when it's required. Whoop! Day 1 is looking like a success so far...

    Xx

    Just remember, some calories are better than others. For example, it'd be easier to lose weight eating 1200 calories of veggies than 1200 calories of candy.

    Bbc good food website lets you search recipes by calorie content. I've had loads of good ideas from there!

    I would recommend watching your sugar in take... I'm being such a diet pusher, but if you're like me your liver only uses a little for energy and converts the rest into fat. Also I've found that level blood sugar prevents the urge to binge.

    Keep on trucking! X
