    It depends on your weight and height - try MFP app that'll help you work it out

    Good luck

    Seconded!

    Also, losing 8lbs in one week seems like a LOT! It's always tempting to pick the lowest amount of calories recommended for a plan, but in the long run you might be better going a little higher with a number that won't make you crave and cave, and will let you lose weight steadily.

    Good luck to you. You need a bit of patience as well, 1-2lbs a week is a good target, there's no quick fix.

    If you lose a big number one week its very common to stall the next week, so just keep at it and next week should yield normal results. Think about it... 8lbs over 2 weeks averages to 4lb a week! That's brilliant :)

    Calorie counting is not a quick fix, you can fit into your life better, losing weight too fast is not always a good thing! Get yourself on mfp and start thinking of cc as a lifestyle change not a diet!!

    Good luck x

    I concur with Wish. You need to eat what you are supposed to, not starve yourself to a quick weightloss, and very likely put it all on again.

    And you can't really go by what someone else is having calorie wise... everybody is different... just because someone is on x calories doesn't mean you are
