Had a very useful website- My Fitness Pal - recommended by someone else on this site. Great easy way to count calories. It suggested I was not eating enough calories and that my body was storing fat because it thought I was starving myself! Ok, I thought, could be right as all my totals for the food types were way lower than should be even for intake of recommended 1350 calories. So cut down on sugar as that was a bit higher than should be ( caused by eating dried fruit and drinking concentrated apple juice ) ate more of every thing else up to or just under the 1350 cals. 2 weeks later I'm 6lbs heavier. Not good!! (I am 2 and a half stone overweight ) Conclusion, . I think my diet is healthy and low in calories. Only way for me to lose any more weight is exercise, exercise, exercise! Oh boy!
