Hi there i'm doing sw and getting close to target just thought i'd see how many kcals i should be consuming IF;) i was calorie counting so i used the links in the subforum and it says to maintain i should have 1990 and to lose i should consume 1490 cals im 5'4 and weight 9st 12lbs does this seem right or too many
Thank you :)

Depends on how much you want to lose and how active you are. x

That amount should give you a loss of 1lb, so sounds about right to me. Make sure you don't go too low on cals, you need energy to maintain your active lifestyle. x

I'm also 5ft 4 I weigh 9st 11 so almost identical. I'm on 1210 calories a day which was matched to be on my fitness pal app to loose around 1lb a week. I started yesterday and did fine still managing some crisps and a kitkat! I'm not doing this long term as I have lost 13.5lb on slimming world but I need something more restrictive at the moment as was cheating! Good luck xx
