Well,it's been really hard and I haven't been able to keep calories down to 1200.But I am managing below 1600.Before my diet I am certain I was eating around 4000 calories a day so it is an improvement.

Yesterday I ate weetabix with almond milk and banana for breakfast,vegetable soup for lunch and dinner was at a Mexican restaurant,I had fried calamari in batter for a starter and veggie bean burger with guaguamole and sweet potato fries and a cocktail.So I think around 2000 calories.Today I had weetabix and banana for breakfast again,345 calories,and chicken breast and mushroom risotto for 630 calories and for dinner a falafel and roasted vegetables panini for 600 calories and a toasted crumpet with butter,117 calories.So today a total of 1692 calories.

I found it easy to resist sugary treats,chocolate,biscuits and ice creme but harder to say no to my favourite savoury meals and I am finding it hard to keep my portions small.But I will keep trying every day to get it right.

I have not weighed myself since the 6th February.I will probably get weighed again when I see the diabetic dietician on February 14th.

156 yesterday, 155 this morning. My attempts at dropping a few more have been too half hearted. I am at a great weight - BMI hovering under 24 lately.

Iíve discovered that double chocolate nesquik milk in 14oz bottles is a pretty good idea when I canít stomach actual food but Iím a little bit below on my calories. Itís 260 calories a bottle and has 14 grams of protein. I canít think of anything else. I donít want to go the ensure route. I think Slim Fast would be dangerous since Iím not overweight. Chocolate milk seems like my only option. Does anyone have any other suggestions on what I can drink?

Slim Fast isn't dangerous; it just isn't a great option for most people as it can leave you hungry. But when you aren't hungry and just trying to add some calories and protein it's fine. There is some pricey boutique stuff that's fruity and has protein. I like Muscle Milk; you can often catch it on sale. Depending on how much trouble you want to go to, smoothies are good. We have a Magic Bullet, so whipping up a yogurt, fruit and milk smoothie is pretty quick. But there is nothing wrong with chocolate milk or regular milk. I would get with my doc and see if I couldn't figure out what's up; you should still be able to eat when you are under 1200.

I am a broken record, which isn't necessarily a bad thing - 155.

what calculators do you guys recommend using for tracking how many calories you take in per day?

based on some free online tools I have used they recommended 1200 calories per day for faster weight loss.

I use MyFitnessPal. Web site and phone app. It has a pretty complete database and even the free version gives you a lot of reporting.

I just use the calculator app on my phone. I used to use the Fitbit app but I havenít used my Fitbit in awhile.

Today I was 145.6. I am pretty sick so thatís why the scale is going down so fast.
