    Hey Yasmine,
    I'm not calorie counting but usually you can buy books which have the calories of loads of takeaways in them, obviously they will be a rough estimation as every place will make their food differently, but Its good if your wanting a rough estimate of how many calories a meal will be.
    There is a really big one called the calorie bible which i always see recommended.

    Hi and thanks for replying.

    I have that Calorie book but I wish it had details about takeaways in more detail. I want it to be as presice as possible so I don't have to guess how many calories I've taken in.

    I guess I could have 1 naughty day where I don't count, but I will be sensible when necessary.

    Thanks hun :)

    I'm on a total food replacement diet so the weight loss is very fast. You shouldn't be ashamed at all, your weight loss progress looks great so far! keep it up :D

    I agree, hats off to anyone that can do the meal replacement thing - I could never do it! I have a friend who did Cambridge last year and she lost loads though.

    I guess we all need to find something that works for us. I did a VLCD (Camrbdige) to lose my weight and am now counting calories to find a balance (most important) and lose some more weight (bit less of a priority). I feel a VLCD doesn't teach you how to deal with food when you've been a bit of a binge eater.. It teaches you want is right but you yourself have to find a balance after a VLCD.

    I'm doing okay but hats off to caloriecounters, seriously... I would've had a harder time doing that all the way.. VLCD is, to me, in some ways easiert than CC. :)

    ^ I agree at the time I was on CD I lost loads of weight in no time at all, however once at goal I piled it all back on again :( maily because I hadn't dealt with binge eating... now I feel I am gaining some control back with that and I monitor my intake through calorie counting. Calorie counting is forcing me to face the issues about why I over eat.
