* 1,600 calories is about right for many sedentary women and some older adults
* 2,200 calories is about right for most children, teenage girls, active women, and many sedentary men (Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding may need somewhat more.)
* 2,800 calories is about right for teenage boys, many active men, and some very active women

found this from here: http://www.uihealthcare.com/topics/nutrition/nutr3176.html

dunno if you should follow it or if it's really true but i think the average person needs about 2000 daily.

Anyways eating only veggies everyday is not good for you, well unless you add some protein related vegetarian food like tofu, soy or nuts...

At your "meals": so you don't have breakfast or you at least have a snack during breakfast time right? anyways you are making progress indeed but just hope you are coming out of this healthy... The most healthy eating schedule for a diet i heard is still have more meals a day (4-6) but just smaller portions, that way your metabolism should speed up (but i know tons of people don't have time for that haha...including myself)

Well so far I have lost 7 lbs in the past two weeks... I think I am making progress.. On average how many calories should I consume.. right now I am eating one meal with some snacks.. My meal consists of one small bowl of rice with one protion meat and two portion veggies..My snack includes salad or chinese soup also digestive cracker.. I usally have my main meal at 2-4 ish and my snack at 7 ish or 10 ish depending on what time I get back from work or school. When i went to visit my parent for 3 days all they had was veggies for 3 days because my older sis is too overweight so my mom force her to diet. Sad I was lookin forward to some good home cooking too...lol
You may consider having salted crackers instead of digestive crackers (or better yet, UNSALTED crackers)... Digestive crackers may have too much sugar and fat for a light snack...



Soup + crackers :)

Costco got some pretty reasonably priced stuff (and their price actually reflected the USD/CDN fluctuation, they lowered their price!)

i think natural vitamins (mostly from fruits and veggies) are better lol, i never really take tablets...don't see how artificial vitamin is more healthy than natural. Though the intake process is much is easier since it's compacted into a tablet.

Oh yea what's with the fish oil tablets and shit like that ha, i know someone old who takes it, sounds nasty.

It's called Frosh 15 sweetie.
Only way you can lose weight and keep it off well is by exercising and lots of fruits and veggies.
Cut back on those sugary drinks too!

=O.....
my advice to everyone who wants to lose weight...

Healthy food & move it!
dont forget the 8 cups of water!
very important to the dieting process :) Also be careful not to go anorexic lol.. -sweat
take everything easy.

First, reduce the amount of food going into your body. Maybe a light dinner or something. That would be a start.
Remember your water and green vegies! Just a side note: if you want to become a vegetarian.. which i never want to be lol.. but apparenlty its really healthy to be and good for weight lost.. make sure you have the same amount of calories going into your body as meat. So, the same amount of calories when eating vegetables,equivalent to that of meat calories.-chef

goodluckk!

Fast as ever. Eat only chicken, egg or prawns for 5 days with multivitamins NOTHING ELSE!!! No vegies, fruit or even soy sauce. eat normal for 7 days and repeat....not healthy, but very effective - not recommended for long term

Effective to the extend that when your body can no longer stand the stress induced from the diet, the weight would yoyo RIGHT BACK UP.

I think if you want to loss your weight then follow my diet plan.
Eat 2 piece of bread with 1 glass milk in breakfast.
Eat fresh salad only in lunch.
Take green tea at 5:00 pm.
Eat some boiled rice in dinner.
