I thought 1200 Cal seemed a little extreme, but they didn't think so at lite'n'easy.

They sent me voucher for a discounted week's trial so I thought I'd give it a go, maybe I should double check the calories with them.

I estimated I should have about 1500 based on my current weight, age and activity level.

The site uses BMI, which is wrong. I've said it before and I'll say it again BMI is WRONG. Muscle weighs more than fat and I'm muscly! >: (

Ah well it doesnt matter my goal is 80kg and thats what the site says.

Your Body Mass Index indicates that you are overweight.

Based on your BMI, you are overweight and should aim to reduce your weight to between 62 and 81 kg.

Losing this amount of weight will not only affect your appearance but also decreases your chances of developing many major health risks.

Target Nutrients
Calories - 1968 cals
Carbs - 244g
Fat - 60g
Protein - 113g
Exercise ~ 45 min walk/day

In order to reach your weight goal, we recommend consuming no more than these nutrients every day.


These figures assume that you're doing exercise equivalent to ~ 45 min

Following this plan, you should lose half to 1 kg a week or about 5 kg by March 1st.

I want to lose more than half a kilo each week anyway!

Also it said I need to be in Australia, I wish we could actually contact them!

Could anyone that uses the forum see if theres a contact email or actually say the problem for us?
