    Ah ok well still good job on your first week!!!! I tried slimming world, and whilst I thought it was fab, I didn't really loose a lot due to having all the free foods, I guess I kinda over ate thinking it was ok.

    I'm having 1200 a day to, although if I have a particularly hard workout I try to eat some of my burnt calories back. It makes me feel all weak and shakey the day after if I don't.

    Having weighed myself this morning and only lost 0.25lbs I'm going to try a week of 1200 cals and see what difference that makes just about to get some breakfast and head to the gym. X

    The way it was explained to me, and it totally made sense is that 1200 is right for some people but not for everyone. Many peoples basal metabolic rate is higher than this, this is the amount of calories you would need to stay alive if you were completely sedentary, say in a coma or something. There is a calculation that you can do to work this out by the way if anyone is interested. So, if you are eating less that that bmr, your body thinks it's in starvation mode, and whilst you will initially drop some weight, eventually the body is going to go into panic mode and stop losing.
    So at the very least you need to be eating at this bmr, in fact I have found that by using the calculation to work out the maximum you can eat without losing or gaining weight, then dropping the calories by 15-20% I am still able to lose weight which makes me very happy.
    Blimey I really hope this makes sense lol

    I've never eaten as low as 1,200 a day - way too little for me, lol. I started out on 1,800-2,000, then gradually decreased to around 1,400-1,500, which is plenty low enough. I've lost over 10 stone, so it does work quite well. xx

    I agree, it's too low for me, it needs to be something that's sustainable in the long term. If you go too low you're far more likely to fail. Good luck! xx

    Hi, I've read time and time again that we should be eating a lot more than 1200 calories. I find it so interesting but admit that I'm too scared to take the plunge. I have quite a lot to lose. How has your weight loss been on 1900 if you don't mind me asking?
