    Hey, everyone I'm just starting out.

    I'm planning on calorie counting too and have a quick question - roughly how many calories do you allow per meal/snack and does this keep you feeling full all day? Or do you vary it alot and keep to a daily total?

    :)

    Calorie counting
    Hi, personally I have 300 to 400 for breakfast, 500ish for lunch with milk for coffees and fruit for snacks, I usually have eaten around 1000 calories by the time I get home. Then I have up to 800 calories, but often less, usually 1500 or so by bedtime. I know a lot of people skip breakfast, but it is an important meal to have. I would only eat more than 1800 if I go out for a meal or visit people.

    hey thanks for the replies. I'm aiming for 1100-1200 a day but haven't managed to get into any kind of routine with it yet so your replies have helped.
    Possibly will average out at 200 for breakfast, and 300-400 for lunch and dinner - allowing for snacks or slightly larger meals depending on how I feel.
