Hi everyone.

I just started on the site. I entered my weight, height ect ect ect and FatSecret told me I have to eat 4900 calories p/day.

That sounds like too much to me...... thoughts please..
Start weight 20/04/2013 = 240kg Goal weight 120kg (total loss 120kg)

It won't happen over night, but if you don't give up it WILL happen.

FatSecret tends to overestimate calorie intake. I would start around, oh, maybe 3000 and see how your body reacts to that.

At your size you can easily drop 1000 calories below your rdi without feeling deprived.
Make sure you move as much as possible I would say lots of walking but build it up slowly but do our every day if you can

At your size you should see fairly quick results if you stay in a calorie deficit consistently

Good luck

As Spacey said. Easily drop a 1000 without a thought of being deprived or hungry. Do half our of light exercise eg walking and build it up so you burn fat and don't lose muscle instead. As the weight comes off reset your rdi. You can specify your own rdi rather than take the FS rdi calculation. Dont forget your body isn't always hungry...its usually thirst so try drinking more water instead of snacking. Good luck Smile

An easy way to drop calories is to make better food choices. Some carbs/refined products are packed with calories even in the smallest portions and they aren't very satisfying from a hunger standpoint. Think about better proteins, omega 3 rich fats and fresh veggies/fruit in place of empty calories and you won't even notice you're eating less and you'll probably notice a difference in energy, etc.
this damn tracker below hasn't been right in months! My current weight is 137!
