Bit of background...I'm 36, have followed numerous "diet" plans such as slimming world, weightwatchers, low carb...used numerous calorie counting apps including MFP...I've read (or more like bombarded myself) with books/videos on Fasting, Keto, low carb, plant based diets, lowering meat consumption, meats bad for me, carbs are bad for me and now here I am with an unhealthy relationship with food, always viewing food groups as "good" or "bad" and just stuck in this awful cycle of good one day, bad the next...I eat something from my view of "bad" and I then feel crappy! During lockdown I've gained 1st and just feeling urrgghhh!
So I thought I just need to go back to basics of calorie counting, enjoying all food groups and not feeling bad!
So my worries are...Do I literally just follow the calorie goal that MFP has given me which is 1660? I'm 36, 5ft 3in and 13st 13lb, I selected "Light Activity" level as I do have a desk job but I do between 12k - 15k steps per day as I go for a morning and afternoon walk!
My "exercise" is not that great at the moment meaning I don't currently workout other than my steps...
Does my calorie goal sound about right at 1,660 per day aiming to lose 1lb per week?
Any other advice would be greatfully welcomed too 😁
