How my calories should I be eating each day?
The following is my opinion and the one that has worked for me. It needs a lot of patience, but I believe it is better that yo yo diets.

I would say think of this as a marathon, not sprint. If you start with 1200-1500 cals and train every day, well it is hard to keep up and not to fall into old habits and there is no way to improve on that numbers.

Let me expand this. I advise you to start with 2700 cals and do resistance training for two times a week and cardio two times a week. This will save you from hunger all day (compared to 1500 cals), give you energy to put REAL work in all of your workouts.

Now comes the critical part, do this for a week, and see how much you lost. If it is 2 pounds or more (hats off to draglist), keep everything same. If less than 2 pounds, increase your cardio to 3 days a week. See where I'm going with this? you will increase cardio and resistance training slowly and lower your calories bit by bit, when you don't loose enough weight. You will start with small guns, don't nuke all over the place Smile

In terms of meals, there's word going around to lower your carbs (so that you will have less carbs to deal with and more fat to burn) and higher protein (helping to preserve muscle tissue on dieting plus high thermogenic effect of it). Also, healthy fats are essential too (nuts, olive oil etc).

And most important of all, do and eat what works for you, not for the others. Every metabolism is unique.

Hats off to gnat as well, it's the caloric deficit determines your weight loss, so slowly by increasing your caloric burn and decreasing your caloric intake, you will see exactly where you are at.
