    just thought it would be interesting to see how many cals people are having a day?
    i am trying to have between 1500-1800 a day for now, and then if i hit a brick wall i will lower them.

    MyFitnessPal.com works mine out at about 1270 for my height and weight, more if I exercise and I try to stay within that. Doesn't always work though but I don't stress it, just vaguely calorie count.

    MyFitnessPal says I can have 1530 a day but I rarely use them. Especially when I exercise and it adds more. That`s why I get so frustrated at not losing much weight even with the Xenical :sigh:

    I haven't been counting calories at all, just fat so far. However I am going to start counting calories too as some days I seem to eat quite a lot, all be it healthy foods but I am wondering if I eat too many calories.

    I'm going to be aiming for no more than 1400 calories a day. :)

    I have around 1500 calories each day, but I try not to get too obsessed by it.
    I try to stay under 250 calories for my breakfast, 350 for lunch and 500 for tea, which leaves a bit of room for snacks/treats. The meals I buy/cook routinely are all within these allowances so I don't have to think too hard about it.
    I just have to re-think/re-adjust when something out of the ordinary comes along, like meals out, or if I decide to treat myself to something a bit more indulgent.
