calorie plans??

i have recently read a post from a women about the BMR, this i never knew about and its probably the reason why i havent lost or get stuck on diets. my BMR was 1341.09, this is the rate my body burns calories to stay alive even if i just lay in bed all day, now u X's this by a number (u can find on net) me, i dont do much, so mine was by 1.2 which gives u 1609. 308. now to lose 1lb per week, u need to burn 3500 calories, so take 500 calories away per day leaves me with 1109.308, and then the next 3500 from exercise.
the problem is, i am crap at counting calories and cant cope with meal replacement shakes. so can anyone tell me of a 1100 calorie diet plans??

Eeeerm my maths would be rubbish? Soooo there's a sticky thread on here or go to the My Fitness Pal site (there's an app if you have a smartphone) and they work it out for you!! It's free to use and You can also log all your food there to find the calorie contents and keep a record of what your having (I can't live without this!! No maths!! It's all done by the wonder of technology lol) on an average 1200 day I eat something like the following

Lunch....small can of tuna with a big salad
Dinner.....chicken breast lots of veg and 100g of new potato's with a drizzle of gravy or dressing
Snacks.....couple of coffees 1 sugar yoghurt, fruit, and sometimes a low fat ice-cream.

Have a look at some of the diaries and the what's for dinner thread :) they have good ideas! And remember the calories are almost always listed on your food packaging so it's generally fairly easy to keep track.

Can you download myfitnesspal to your computer? Or is it just for your phone??
Haha once again what fattack said :) it's the best site I've used and if you don't have it for your phone then most foods do have the cals on if you look. Keep a little notebook in your handbag an just jot down what you have as you go. When I was on WW I used to write my points on my hand haha so I'd not forget what I'd had but a tiny notebook is much more discreet!

I too would recommend myfitnesspal, can't help you with 1000 days though as I'm on 1350 at the moment. Good luck. x
It's fab, eh?
