    I was currently doing slimfast but got a bit bored. so done it every other day kind of but still limited myself to 1300 cals a day so just decided from today iam going to calorie count.and ive lost 5lb in the last 2 weeks.i didnt think i would have lost much cause ive had a few take aways but wasnt over eating during the day so maybe thts why.and i go a hour and half walk most days.but from today iam guna be stricter and just have one take out a week.i cant beleive it lol.x

    Well done on your loss - that is brilliant! It just goes to show how effective calorie counting is when you stick at it. I also eat take aways every now and again but when you even it out over the week, the excess doesn't have too much of an impact :)

    I eat around 1300 a day but more on weekends which is when I tend to exercise most. If I go over on any day I try to reduce calories the next day to make up for it but I always have a day at the weekend where I eat more! I have dropped 2 (almost 3) dress sizes on this plan as it's totally changed my eating habits xx

    Brilliant! I'm on 1200 net (I'm pretty short- and do exercise most days so eat those calories on top) this week - I was on 1000 but then was told off! So it's really encouraging to see people eating a bit more and still losing fantastic amounts.

    I was told off because I'm pretty active (burn at least 2k cals a week) and 1k calories is below the recommended minimum for the average woman.
