Hey everyone, I just signed up with fatsecret and can not figure out how many calories I should be having in a day. Any suggestion?

Run the RDI calculator and see what it gives you; usually it's a little high and you can manually enter your own value circa 2,000
I feel trim and terrific - well I will eventually!

I would not necessarily recommend 2000 calories. Use the calculator, to make sure. The RDI (recommend det daily intake) varies a LOT from person to person. If you feel that you want a faster weight loss than what Fatsecret offers, try shaving off 300-500 calories more per day, but don't go much under a daily average of 1200.
Losing weight is not about eating as little calories as possible, it's about creating a deficit, while your body runs optimally. If you don't eat enough, you will wear out, get tired, find your weight loss journey difficult and risk giving up. We don't want you to give up.
Feel free to add me as a buddy if you like.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.
