Did you see this on embarrassing bodies? Their special "fat" edition? I watched it last night and it actually really annoyed me!! Some of the "advice" was such a load of rubbish!

They measured the metabolism of a "fat family" and how many calories they burnt of in a day and came up with the amount of calories a day that person could eat without putting weight on. The mum could eat 3200 a day.
Any less and she could lose weight.
Really. Lose weight on 3000 calories a day??
And another girl went in with weight problems and instead of discussing the benefits of a healthy diet they just prescribed her diet pills.
I could go on!

Exactly - and it would still take a *long time* to lose anything at this rate - but he/she *would* lose. At the end of the day it always comes down to basic maths of calories in v calories out. If your body takes 3200 calories just to exist and you're eating 3000 calories a day it'll take about 17.5 days to lose one pound, given there are 3500 calories in a pound.

I weigh a lot and the estimate is I burn up 2800 calories a day just to exist. Someone who weighs a lot less will burn up a lot less just to exist as there is simply 'less of them' to burn up any energy. I eat about 1600-1800 calories a day so am under by about 1000 calories a day or 7000 calories a week which equates to 2lb - which is almost exactly what I do lose.

I'm the same! Except because of my running I now find I'm not eating enough-as I'm burning off between 700-800 cals each time I run :)

If you didn't watch the programme you won't quite understand where I'm coming from.

Stupid phone posted before I was finished!
I'm not saying someone who is bigger and does a lot of exercise won't lose weight on 3000 calories, I'm saying the way it was implied on the tv show any larger woman who did some house work could lose weight on 3000 calories a day. It didn't follow up it's advice with the education behind it to make people fully understand why this particular woman could eat 3000 calories and still lose weight.

Put it this way then, I've just done a check and to MAINTAIN my body needs almost 3,500 calories per day if i'm inactive. So for someone my size you could absolutely lose weight on 3,000 a day.

Please read my posts properly. Ignore the whole calorie debate, I was trying to explain I felt there was a lack of education and expirations behind their advice and that people were likely to be miss informed about it.

I did read it properly.

I was just stating that it is true and was not the wrong information.

I saw the programme when it was on a while back.

Sorry, but I think you have just contradicted yourself in these two posts. If it was seen that they measured the specific basal metabolic rate of that woman, I don't see how can it then be implied that this is the BMR for any larger woman.

I don't understand how iv contradicted myself?
Whatever. I'm walking away from this debate cause my point was about miss information and everybody seems to be obsessed over the bloody calories.

What I mean is that they measured her personal BMR. Why bother if they are going to then broadcast that all larger ladies are the same? I didn't pick that up from the programme, that's all :)
