    Soo for about 3 weeks been doing great. Lost some weight, don't know how much but about a month ago I was curious put on my jeans and they fit really tight, now they fit loose and I've been eating great. I eat two eggs every morning with a low carb tortilla. Lunch I eat a wheat ham sandwich. Dinner is either tuna, more egg, or yeah thats pretty much it. I drink crystal light, one packet a day and put half for lunch and dinner. icon_smile.gif!!

    Good for you mate! As your metabolism starts to speed up, though, you're going to want to start eating more. Not sure how many calories you're eating a day (though from this description it sounds like it possibly won't be enough to sustain you much longer) but just remember that too few calories can be as bad as too many, since it may leave you without energy or without the necessary nutrition for building muscle. But besides that, keep up the good work!

    To lose one pound of fat, you must burn approximately 3500 calories over and above what you already burn doing daily activities. That sounds like a lot of calories and you certainly wouldn't want to try to burn 3500 calories in one day. However, by taking it step-by-step, you can determine just what you need to do each day to burn or cut out those extra calories. Below is a step by step process for getting started.

    1. Calculate your BMR (basal metabolic rate). Your BMR is what your body needs to maintain normal functions like breathing and digestion. This is the minimum number of calories you need to eat each day. Keep in mind that no calculator will be 100% accurate, so you may need to adjust these numbers as you go along.

    2. Calculate your activity level. Use a calorie calculator to figure out how many calories you burn while sitting, standing, exercising, lifting weights, etc. throughout the day. It helps to keep a daily activity journal or you could even wear a heart rate monitor that calculates calories burned.

    3. Keep track of how many calories you eat. You can use a site like Calorie Count or use a food journal to write down what you eat and drink each day. Be as accurate as possible, measuring when you need to or looking up nutritional information for restaurants, if you eat out.

    4. Add it up. Take your BMR number, add your activity calories and then subtract your food calories from that total. If you're eating more than you're burning, (your BMR + activity is 2000 and you're eating 2400 calories) you'll gain weight. If you're burning more than you eat, you'll lose weight.

    Thanks I actually messed up Friday, Saturday, Sunday, but that being after one month of successful dieting. I've added chicken salad to my diet and slowly expanding minor things, but I read that lifting weights also increases ones metabolism is that true? Also I'm actually pretty great about sticking to my diet, its just enough to get me through the day icon_smile.gif. I do get dizzy or headaches if I don't drink enough water now though. How do I calculate my BMR?
