    Hi I've started today. I've read many books & their advice is you can eat up to 2000 kcals or don't count any at all.

    I'm following the fast beach diet, and it's a little more restrictive than the fast diet, so it's 500 cals 2 days a week and anywhere between 1200-2000 for up days. I'm doing this for six weeks to get into the swing of it and then I intend on stopping calorie counting on non-fast days to make it more liveable.

    I only started including fast days a few weeks ago, but yes I do count my 'feast' days. I'm short and have a very sedentary lifestyle so I would only need around 1850 calories a day to maintain my current weight, with a margin that low I have to keep track of my other days
