I have started calorie counting instead of other diets because I find this one much easier to stick to in the future. However, I'm starting to wonder how it actually works.

I'm eating on average 1500 calories or less a day, and the calculator says that I should be having 2500 a day. So, I am eating 500 - 1000 less. In my diet I have also stopped drinking coca-cola and instead having extra light oasis which is 100+ calories less. Even though I haven't cut chocolate out completely, I have limited myself and now eat fruit whenever I feel hungry instead. I exercise four hours a week, and walk around all day.

I'm wondering whether this is a suitable diet? I am aiming to lose 3ibs - 5ibs a week. How much would I lose on this diet? Sorry, I am just a little confused. :D

You don't really lose that many calories via exercise - a few, but not a huge amount.

If you're eating 1500 calories a day versus 2500 needed, you'll lose 2lbs a week. (3500 calories = 1lbs of weight lost). 2lbs is a safe rate of weight loss, and is sustainable.

Bear in mind that any diet (pretty much) works on the same principles - calorie restriction, so it doesn't matter what you eat as long as you're not over on calories.

4 LBS is a great start.

I also lost 4 lbs in my first week and it was a great feeling. I get weighed again tonight, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for 2lbs.

Keep doing what your doing, its obviously working!
