    Once if that. It depends how low your calorie intake is though. If you plan it all out of the exact intake you should be having, (1200-1500 calories) and eat the junk on top of that, then it will mess up your weight loss more than you probably think.
    I started trying to lose weight a few weeks a go, so far I lost 10lbs. I didn't lose any last week because I ate one of those mini apple pies on one of the days and a few of my sisters left over chips on another. Now i'm admient to never eat junk food again.

    tbh thats what i was thinking, i doubt a 'few chips' and a 'mini' apple pie would stop someone losing weight if the rest of their diet/exercise was upto it

    BMR doesn't account for BF%

    you can EASILY get by on 1500 calories, the extra calories is only used to support the extra fat you have

    I lost 40lbs previously and it's always had the same effect.
    I started eating dramatically less recently as I used to eat a hell of a lot, so yes, eating even one piece of junk food (an apple pie has like 300 calories or something) And you should never snack in between meals, which is proven to stump your weight loss. Your body reacts to a routine when trying to lose weight, which is why most people have set meal plans.

    If you are so adiment to eat the sensations (which you clearly are as you are trying to undermind what I am saying) then eat them!

    im clearly not since i have none in the house and havnt been to the shop for any

    what im saying is just because something works for you doesnt mean it will work for others, 1200 cals is WAY too low for me to have, the more you weigh the more cals you need to maintain your weight so obviously the more cals you can have to lose weight, BMR is there for a reason and you arnt meant to eat 1000 cals less than what you need to maintain your weight

    Well I eat it once or twice a week, and it doesnt do much harm but then again it depends how much junk your planning on eating, I used to be almost 12 stone now im 8 stone 12, and ive still had my fair share of junk food, aslong as your diet is normally healthy and low fat, I don't see the problem in one bag.

    if you had say two of those apple pies at 300kcals each then your total excess food would be the calorific total of 66.6g or 0.14 of a lb - as such you are talking crap!
    This is if your diet was in deficeit to loose as you say you have and if the body could add everything it had taken in, which it can't!!!!

    So I am very much undermining what you are saying as it is scientifically incorrect even with the slowest metabolism in the world!!!!!!!!

    My doctor told me a woman should never eat over 2000 calories unless you want to put on weight and that 2000 is the maximum you can eat to maintain your weight. I weigh 200lbs and my doctor recommended me after I had my baby to start with 1500 calories and after every 15lbs lost, go down around 100.

    You're OBESE

    BMR doesn't work for obese people.

    OBESE people can survive on 1500 calories

    1500 is all that's needed for your organs, brain, etc .. to function

    so stop making silly excuses, even health professionals agree

    and i can find you many other links

    so shut up and stop eating

    Weight Watchers

    ah as i thought, weight watchers is actually crap, yes their food has a low cal content but im not surprised as theres basically nothing in their meals, they do however have a higher fat/sugar content than other ready made meals

    that said their chocolate mousse and chocolate eclairs are lovely lol
