    Oh dear god mr powerlifting man.

    You would be a terrible lawyer.
    You can't just create arguements where there aren't any.

    The biggest loser people can obviously burn more calories doing the same activity than people of a smaller weight. I didn't create the figure 4000 from thin air, it was on oprah :p:

    I don't know why I'm even bothering.

    His point was that it's unlikely the biggest loser people burn off 4000 cals a day, as unless they are athletes capable of doing the tour de france (or at least maintaining a high rate of exercise for 5 + hours) they physically can't burn that much off in a day.
    What if they are epic fat and raising a burger to their mouth costs 4000 calorie points because of the size of their forearms.

    Stop being mean, all the lifters here are evil.
    No, the lifters here know what they're talking about. This is evidenced by their success in lifting. They are then antagonised for not supporting malnutrition disguised as weight loss.

    Hmm Opra huh vs the fact I have been a personal trainer for a fair while, played rugby in the 1st division and came 6th in the world at powerlifting and my better half is a dietician who specialises in sports diatetics and physical training - what the hell would I know, apparently arguing against your total lack of proof to your BMR, total lack of proof towards your 4000kcal suggestion and so on means I have no argument?
    Do you know what argument means?
      1. A discussion in which disagreement is expressed; a debate.
      2. A quarrel; a dispute.
      3. Archaic. A reason or matter for dispute or contention: “sheath'd their swords for lack of argument” (Shakespeare).
    As I do indeed have disagreement with your statements and your total lack of any evidence I do not need to 'create' and argument, as it already is one.

    No do I, you have cited 'Oprah' as your basis for your statement, I stated actual Pysical training knowledge and the National Diatetics board, meh obviously the chat show knows more pmsl

    I get paranoid about weight sometimes, its only natural, but seriously your well proportioned for your height. I mean im size 12 and 5'1 and i wouldnt say im fat. Like someone else has said, its all about eating right, eating healthy and a bit of exercise. And you shouldnt have to worry about such things.
    Stop and read that: has such obsession and superficiality become part of our make-up?

    When I first started to lose weight, I was eating about 1700-1800 cals a day, and you know what? I went from 11 stone to 7.5 stone. I just ate the right foods and exercised; I acted like a thin person, so became one

    You're very sensible congratulations.

    To the people who think this is a good idea, I can't be bothered to read this whole thread as it will be full of crap, good on you!:woo:

    Just thought I'd add my opinion... cutting down to 1000 calories a day isn't as difficult to do as you'd think. I eat around 1000-1200 calories a day and go to the gym three times a week. It doesn't slash your energy levels at all - I find it quite good actually.


    My top tips:
    - Limit yourself with breads/pasta/rice
    - Eat a proportionate amount of lean meat
    _ Eat lots of vegetables, but keep an eye on fruit intake (it contains more sugar, and thus more calories)
    - Drink lots of water
    - Only use skimmed milk on breakfast cereals and in milkshakes. Shocking, I know, but with the Crusha sugar free variety of milkshake syrup, you can have a large shake for about 50 calories!
    - Drink low calorie soda if you feel like it (the new Zero range is INCREDIBLE- Lilt and Fanta Zero taste exactly the same as their full-sugar counterparts), but make sure this ISN'T ALL YOU DRINK. Remember, soda is a diuretic and will dehydrate you
    - Switch all condiments to the low calorie or lighter version (or with things like butter in sandwiches or baked potatoes, just cut them out). Extra Light mayo is awesome with tuna or egg in a sandwich, as well as in pasta salads
    - If you really crave a treat, try one of the Weight Watchers chilled desserts or the low calorie slices you can get at the supermarket. They have all sorts: cherry bakewell, lemon, carrot cake...
    - Finally, if you do feel drained of energy before working out, eat a small bag or handful of sweets. It'll give you the energy boost you need.

    Hope these tips helped some of you guys. My diet was absolutely awful up until a few months ago, and I really had no hope I'd ever be able to change. Now I've changed my eating ways I've managed to shift half a stone and can now run 5k straight
