    I am mainly calorie counting - though I must admit I am ignoring calories in steamed vegetables and salads!

    Just tried Food Focus, it's giving me totally different results to what Nutracheck does, not the right products too.

    Think I'll stick to Nutracheck, it seems to be more accurate.

    How do you know which is the most accurate? The cals in foods I eat most seem to be higher on Nutracheck, but the foodfocus log checks out with a few others I've used? (not exactly but within a few calories). I guess its what you're used to? I'll use both for a while & compare.

    Check every now and again with the packets. Personally, I found nutracheck inaccurate. Haven't tried focus.

    I chose WLR because the way they administrate it means the calorie values are more up to date than most.

    I'm not sure now. Go to the website

    weightlossresources.co.uk

    They usually have a free 3 days to try out.

    hey, i am here too. although i don't really know what i count as. i'm doing the juddd thing, so i alternate between a very low calorie day (about 500) and a day where i eat what i want, but for me this has to be sensibly with a treat or two. it's an experiment. it's my first day today and i'm going to try it for a week. hopefully i won't get fatter. will let you know how i get on...

    Thanks :D

    i'm ravenous. how do people stick to vlcd? and cd where you don't eat it seems!! i will survive today, but only because i know i can eat tomorrow, ha. but will have to be careful not to go mental!!

    to be honest if i stick to this 500cals every other day thing i don't see how this can fail. this week is the ultimate test as i'm going up to scotland to see my mum for the weekend for her birthday so am sure there will be several meals out and lots of yumminess and drinking. so i do really need to be careful on my up dates leading up to the weekend and really strict on my down days!!
