    I'm about 5'6 and 95kg, (I know I'm a fatty!). So I'm looking to hopefully lose about 25-30kg by July, desperately want a beach bod for my summer hols! Is this possible if I stick to a diet of around 1000-1200 calories a day and running 15km a day? I have MyFitnessPal installed on my iPhone which recommends that I eat 1340 cals a day but I'm just not hungry enough to reach that many! Any tips or advice is muchly appreciated :) thanks!

    As a women you should aim for about 1200 kcals a day, for womanly reasons.
    Also if you eat too less your body will stop losing the weight, so it's better to eat a little more, if you can't eat your 1200 you can always take it up from 1000kcals by having a glass of orange juice or something :)

    I'm doing the same, working away from home and it's soooo hard to keep to the 1200 calories over by about 200 today :(

    To gain weight with a high metabolism you will really have to up the calories. This means adding an extra 1000-2000 calories to your maintenance level calories. This will literally force your body to gain weight.

    If you're having that much exercise you really need much more than 1000-1200 a day (you shouldn't go below 1200 anyway unless it's a properly supervised VLCD). 1340 still sounds much too low for that amount of exercise. I've never gone below 1400, and I do no exercise at all (and have lost 8 stone so far). Good luck. xx
