lite and easy

Postby Adelaide_Guy_68 » Sat Jun 30, 2007 10:17 pm

Hi reester33,

I wouldn't say that 1200 calories is heaps of food but I am finding it is enough for me.

The sales consultant said they normally don't recommend the 1200 calorie plan for guys as it's not normally enough but I'm OK on it.

In contrast to this - a couple of girls I know tried it and they said they were absolutely starving.
They were both tiny girls and maybe 10 kilos overweight and yet they couldn't cope on it.

I can't explain this. I'm a pretty solid guy and even at my leanest I will weigh 35 kilos more than these girls so it doesn't make a lot of sense to me that they were starving and I'm fine.

Mind over matter maybe?

They probably had a faster metabolism than you.

So did you request the 1200 cal plan? My consultant said I'd have to do the 1500 cal plan....personally I think that's WAY too much food for me.

Just so you know the 1200 isn't exactly 1200 cals it is an approximate amount. I also used the calorieking software and I used to put in my lite n easy meals to get the hang of using the software before I came off the program and started to make up my own meals. It ranged from 1200 - 1350 cals on any given day.

Just remember that 1200 is the lowest anybody wants to go for weightloss. I started on the 1200 myself and like Darren didn't find myself hungry at all but do know of other people on 1200 and 1500 both women and both didn't find it enough food. I think mind over matter is part of it so your own attitude will determine a great deal just like anything in life.

I did find, however, when I built up to more intensive exercising and began including weight training I did start to get hungry.

Overall I still think lite n easy was excellent and Maree I agree a very convenient thing if you are on call. One of the ladies at work is on maintenance but continues with their dinners as she just finds it convenient.

1200 calories

Postby Adelaide_Guy_68 » Sun Jul 01, 2007 9:41 pm

I did request the 1200 calorie plan.

The girl did try to talk me out of it but I stuck to my guns and said I would rather just supplement it with some fruit if I found it wasn't enough rather than ordering and paying for the extra.

So far so good. :-)

This portion control stuff sounds so craazy to me - 1200 cals! Amazing. I'd absolutley wilt on that and I don't consider myself to be very active. I can lose weight on 9500 kj which is about 2300 cals I think. My trouble is keeping it down to that little food. Whoa.

Progress

Postby Adelaide_Guy_68 » Wed Jul 04, 2007 8:36 pm

Hi all,

Well I had my first weigh in today after two full weeks on the Lite & Easy program.

I have lost 4 kilograms in two weeks. That is way above what I expected to lose.

I've just started to add some exercise to my daily routine so it will be interesting to see what happens in the next two weeks.

If i can maintain that lrate of oss I will be very happy.

I'll post future updates in the personal progress section.
