Full Member
Hey, I'm only just starting out too and I'm aiming for 1100-1200 per day but I'm short so can't really afford to eat much more than that compared to what i'll burn off!

I'm on 1000 a day too. Works really well for me, but I was advised by my doctor to do it, I am supposed to have the odd week at 1200 but I haven't really bothered.

there is a calculator thing you can get that calculates how many cals you need to drop before you lose weight.

Good luck!!

I'm on CD now but have calorie counted. My advice is to start as high as you can because as you lose you may need to drop down. If you start at 1000 there isn't very far you can go!

Work out what you burn (there are daily calorie needs calculators on the net) and decide what to drop from it. 1000 cal drop per day should give you 2 pounds a week loss, 500 cals a 1 pound loss.


To infinity and beyond!
Just joined my slimming club tonight and I have been given a calorie allowance of 2000!! Of course I have got a lot of weight to lose and I am 5' 10".

Lost weight before at 1500 a day and didn't drop below that right up to goal.

I have decided I will do this week at 1,750 and see how it goes.

I shoot for an average of 1,200. Sometimes it's 1,000, sometimes it's 1,500. Today it's, er, about 1,600 due to an urge for crisps :D
