    Hi everyone:D

    lookin for some advice.. im a bit of a yo yo dieter, over the past couple of years iv went between ww and sw, losing between7 and 14 pounds, never seemed to lose anymore as I got so bored with it to be honest.. a lot of people have recommened calorie counting and this sounds good to me as I presume u can eat anything as long as it is within your calories? I am at the min 23 yrs, 5”5 and weigh 13 st 2lb and am a uk size 14.. my main area is my belly, I roughly would like to lose around 1 and half to 2 stone, would like to be in a size 12 again.. could anyone tell me roughly how many calories I should have?and also (silly question) but does the likes of lettuce, peppers mushrooms etc have calories?just wonderin how I cud count them without any packaging lol.. any advice would be much appreciated

    c xxxx

    hello hun and welcome to calorie counting, its really fun if you put your mind to it.

    i found out my daily calorific allowance by joining myfitnesspal.con for free, it tells you how much calories you should be eating eachday to lose weight, it also has a food and exercise log where you keep track of what you ate plus it counts the calories for you.

    goodluck with your journey, if you need support its right here for you x

    well 100g of lettuce is abiut 18cals, mushroom is 20cals red bell pepper is about 40cals, so you can tell that the cals are quite low in veg, but if you join myfitnesspal.com it should help you out quite a lot x

    I don't count veg... I think it is such few calories anyway that it doesn't matter too much and any way of me eating more veg is a bonus!

    Welcome :)

    Be careful with fruit though. I count all fruit as, for example, a banana has about 100-150 cals!

    Also, double check the veg before as avocado is very high in cals x
