Week 1 using BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) to "diet". BMR is worked out by calculating the weight you want to be with your current height, weight etc. The formula then gives you the number of calories you'd be consuming at the target weight to maintain that weight. All you have to do is consume that amount, or less, of calories per day. Easy. Sort of. Daily target is about 2400 calories. Toast (2 slices) with margarine, for example, is about 700 calories. Almost a third of your daily allowance in one hit. Bugger.
Weight this morning using home scales - 118 kg. Last week at the doctors it was about 124 kg (fully clothed and shoes).
