When I log on to the NHS BMI tracker it says I should eat between 1851 and 2380 calories per day to lose weight, and stick to the lower end of this range to lose weight.
On a previous weight loss attempt I ate between 2000 and 2200 each day and lost 0.5 pounds a week on average. If my maths is correct, and 500 calories a day = 1 pound then that means I would need to be eating 1250 - 1450 a day in order to lose 2 pounds per week ...
Clearly those are two very different ranges for losing two pounds per week and can't both be correct? I have PCOS which means I need less calories than some in order to lose weight but surely it can't be that drastically different?
Any suggestions of what I should be eating? I would ideally like to lose 1.5 - 2.5 pounds per week.
