    Hi guys! I'm new to calorie counting and finding it a bit daunting! I was following exante meal replacement diet but due to medication I need to be on my doctor advised me to switch to calorie counting as I can't take my medication on a vlcd. The plan is to have 800 cals a day which according to my current bmr should give me an average loss of 3-4 lbs per week. I weigh in on Monday's at home and will also be weighed by my doc once a month if I feel i need the support! Anyway looking forward to gettin to know everyone here xx

    Good luck :) it is tough at first but once you get into the swing of things and start remembering certain foods it gets much easier :)

    Thanks lovies!! I'm so happy with 6lbs and I'm amazed cos although people say have 1200 minimum I'm feeling great on 800cals and already feel the benefit of eating healthy! Xx

    I'm on about 800 too. It can be done, and done healthily too - it just takes a bit more care and attention to make sure all bases are covered.

    STS is so annoying :( hopefully you'll have a nice big loss next week tho! U 800 girls are so hardcore lol I'd be eating the furniture!! Saying that it would be worth it for a 6lbs loss I think!! ;)

    Thanks ladies :) my sts has been due to totm cos had a sneak peak and I'm down 2lbs since yesterday. Always get really bloated at totm :-( so next weigh in hopefully a good one! I agree tho about metabolism, I have a weekly treat on weigh in day so one day a week I consume way over calorie wise. Keeps me on the straight and narrow and confuses my body a bit lol but it works for me xx
