    Good Afternoon everyone!

    I'm starting Alli on Sunday. Your probably thinking why Sunday. Well i'm going out Sat evening and even tho i plan to be good you just never know! ;)
    From today, i've started to eat healithy and to monitor the amount of fat i take in each day.

    I have a question tho....In the alli book it says according to my weight that I should be having 1800cal a day. Now is this set in stone or can i follow a 1200cal or 1400cal a day??

    Look forward to meeting you all.
    Please comment on my diary if you feel the need to guide to me or correct me as i'm new and its all abit alien to me lol

    Hello cheeky.

    Nothing is set in stone although if you exercise dont forget to eat a few more calories, you don't want your body into starvation mode.

    40mins walking is a nice amount of exercise :p Remember gym isnt the only place to work out :D

    Walking is great exercise, one of the best, make sure you walk quickly and swing your arms. You'll look ridiculous but it will help you lose weight!
    It frightens me when I look at the amount of fat in things I would just have stuffed in my mouth, particularly if you look at the percentage of daily intake. My Mum had cookies at her house yesterday and just one of them contained 20% of sat fat for a day. A fifth! They did look gorgeous but I managed to resist...
