Hi all

I need some advice, I have been calorie counting for over three weeks now using the Food Focus website, it gave me 1359 calories to eat daily, I hardly ever reach that amount and am averaging at about 1000 a day. I have also been hitting the exercise hard, doing 25 mins on my exercise bike daily, a 45 min workout/or a 3.5 mile walk:rolleyes: However after all this I have only lost 4 lbs:sigh: OK I know its 4 off and not 4 on, but I would have hoped I would have dropped half a stone at least by now. This is where my query comes in, with me doing the exercise, do I offset that by eating more calories? Or do I still carry on with 1359 cals and continue the exercise i'm a bit worried that perhaps my body is in starvation mode and thats why my weight loss has been poor:rolleyes: Any thoughts on this would be fab:)

I am at the point now where I am about to gice up the CC and go back to SW, as I seemed to have a better weight loss:rolleyes:

Look forward to your opinions, thanks:)

You're eating too little! Especially with doing a lot of exercise! Are you not logging your exercise too? WHen you do it'll adjust your calorie target for the day- you really should try & hit this target (within 100cals anyway) or your body will be hanging on for dear life to any food it does get! Trust me- I've been there!


is going to loose!

Hi Wish,

I agree perhaps try 1200 cals and the same exercise amounts. Let us know how you go.

When I was doing ww I heard the best piece of advice - if you cut down your cals too much in the beginning then you have no where to cut should you reach a plateau. You want to be loosing a steady amount of weight and leave room for manoeuvre later on. If you are full on what you eating it seems daft to add more food but just more energy dense food like nuts or dried fruit and you will get your calories up without being overly full.
