Hey everyone ๐Ÿ˜

Its been a very slow weightloss for me.. I am down 15kgs since 2020 but am struggling to drop some more weight. I have insulin resistance and hashimotos; I do have a problem with consistency and motivation.

Does anybody have tips on how many calories I should have a day and what to eat without going hungry and without getting bored?

Your assistance would be highly appreciated ๐Ÿ’•

    Hi hunnie :)

    It all depends on your weight and height and what goal you want to get to :)
    MFP will calculate the calories for you and as long as you stick within them calories you will lose weight :)

    Maybe consult with a doctor about how to lose weight safely especially as you have health issues

    Good luck and remember donโ€™t give up :) xx

    Enter your information in the area the GOAL button takes you to. Click the guided setup and it will give you a calorie amount based on that information. Try that amount for at least 3-4 weeks making sure when you log your food that the entries are accurate based on say nutrition labels or other sites like the USDA site. Once you build up a history you won't have to check constantly and that doesn't take long.
