Morning,

im looking into maybe using CC to help me sort my weight problem. I have a lot to lose so was wondering if this is suitable long term. Also how would i work out the amount of calories to be consumed. My BMR was around 2200 the last time i checked if i remember rightly. Would i just gradually lower this? All info gratefully recieved.

Since your doing this long term I suggest you reduce your calories by at least 500 per day. After a week you've created a 3500 calorie deficit (500x7), which means you'll lose 1lb of body weight. In order to do this properly you need to find out what your current daily calorie need is (BMR x 1.2).

Hi Lisa. If you google BMR calculator, you can work it out exactly. As posted, 3500 cals equals 1 lb of fat. Good luck - cal counting is easy and it does mean you can eat what you like - but not quite as much as you might like.
