I basically just use Calorie King, stick within my kilojoule limit for the day, but I know my BMR and from that have worked out my AMR (active metabolic rate), so I just have worked out a deficit to lose weight each week.
So I stick to that, and make sure I do at least 8000kJ worth of exercise per week (I have a heart rate monitor which tells me exactly how much I burn!), including weights and cardio.. and I make sure I mix it up a bit so my body doesn't get used to it! I do classes like Body Attack, Hi/Lo, Body Pump, Step, RPM (can never get to it anymore though
), Kickboxercise.. and I also do free weights and cardio, and if I'm having a slack day I just go for a decent walk!
I stay away from takeaway, make good choices when out at dinner, make sure I get enough protein and fibre in my diet.. Eat loads of fruit and veges and drink about 3-4L of water a day... Umm eat low fat/diet dairy products eg yoghurt, cheese, milk..
I'm lucky because I don't often crave chocolate and lollies and things like that but if I do, I have a square or 2 of choccy, or a fun size bar, or a little serving of something else!
Everything in moderation
