    So from what i've seen the bigger you are the harder it is to work out how many calories you consume. So i've gone with how many i need when i get to target apparently at 11 stone with little exercise i'd need 1800 calories and thats about half most of the sights say i must eat. Soooo i've decided to see how it goes sticking to 2000 calories a day, if the calculations are right i should loss 2lbs a week and if i struggle i can still drop and not starve myself. What does everyone think?

    Most sites are telling you that you need 3,600 Kcal a day to stay the same weight? I can't imagine you losing much weight on 2000Kcal daily. Have I misunderstood your post?

    Well I guess it's worth a try, especially if 2000 is quite a lot less than you are eating now. You can always lower the allowance if your loss isn't satisfactory.
