    Lol, I don't know why people perpetuate that crap. Women seriously do not need 2000 unless they want to be fat as houses. I know everyone says it, but that doesn't make it true. :rolleyes:

    And if you don't eat crap, 1000 is more than enough. Genuinely, I eat on average 800 a day and it's not particularly challenging, I just don't eat much crap. It's a case of counting and balancing. Looking at the last 2 weeks, the most I've eaten is 1000ish in one day. :dontknow:
    This.

    Women who eat 2000 calories a day will end up being built like a ******* house.

    good lord..I probably eat 5 times more in a day than you do..well at least your food bill won't be much, unless you live on caviar (sp) or something. Do you get three meals a day?

    I need 2000 at least to maintain my 8stone4 (5'7) because I do so much exercise. However if like the OP I was a lazy arse, I'd only need 1400.

    But yeah tink if you keep your net calories over the week lower even with the two treat days then I assume you would still lose weight.

    Exercise? So what if it's boring. It does you good. I run for 45 minutes on a treadmill, not think I get bored? But what keeps me going is that I know it's doing me good. It's fine to treat yourself. As long as at the end of the week, you have a calorie deficit you will lose weight. But exercising can allow you to treat yourself more. If you want of course. Or help you lose weight faster.

    Your BMR is about 1975kcals. Eat between 1500 and 1600 to lose weight. Only healthy stuff. 1000-1100 will be counter productive, as your body will probably enter 'starvation mode' and cling to every last calorie you get.

    Get down the gym as well.

    That's what cheat meals are for. Once a week, eat your BMR and include some treats. Stops your body from getting used to the restricted calories.
