    Am I right in thinking that this is something I can do for a week or so to give my weight lose a boost?

    Does anyone know how many points I can reduce my intake too for a week?

    Thx

    i think its 4 points less than your daily allowance.

    So if your allowed 22 id say 18

    Thx. I was thinking something like that sounded right but didn't want to cut down too much.

    I've got a similar amount to lose as you and am aiming for the same time - not sure it's possible for me to be honest!!

    WMBB is right. It's not just a case of knocking points off it's either 22 or 18 dependant on your weight

    I'm finding it difficult on 18 pts.

    Always seem to be hungry.

    Don't think I could cut it back by 4
    I'd collapse in a massive heap :eek:

    Think my will power is zilch. :17729:



    Good luck Edwin.

    it depends on your weight becks.

    heres the general equation

    weight(lbs) X no of mins X 0.000232 (light)
    " " 0.00033 (medium)
    " " 0.00081 (vigorous)

    light = still talk and sing
    medium = can still sing and breaking a sweat
    vigorous =panting, cant sing and sweating alot

    Thx for the replies.

    I am exactly 14 stone :( so I'll try for 18 points but be a bit flexible if I'm struggling. My allowance at the moment (until I drop another lb) is 23 so not much point in dropping down to 22 points for kick start. 18 does seem a bit low though....!!
