My husband has just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes which was a wake up call for us. We've decided that we need to lose weight, get fitter and generally try to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
We've both been on the NHS bmi calculator. It's given a recommended daily calorie intake for my husband, but not for me. Does anybody know what's a good amount for a middle aged woman who's not very active?
And is it really essential to count calories? I've never tried and it seems a lot of faff. Has anybody lost weight by just cooking healthier meals, cutting out snacks and having smaller portions?
