Well I done the 1200 calories a day as recommended. I had 2 days over but was in line for the week, was feeling quite chuffed with myself. Been doing strength training plus cardio 3 times a week at gym. Weighed myself after week 1 and damn was exactly the same weight as previous week. I'm noticing a different in how I look though and I'm sure I'm getting more toned. See how the next week goes and still sticking to 1200 calories a day and eating much better.
