I'm new here, but like everyone am trying to lose weight ( two stone to be exact)! I am a young 63, an artist, so a fair amount of standing or sitting involved. I do try and walk every day or cycle , and have discovered I can swim for free at a relatively local pool, so that's definitely a bonus.
I've realised that I don't drink nearly enough water so I am rectifying that , I now drink two litres a day and feel better for it, plus the trips ( upstairs to the loo) are an added bit of exercise! I do feel better for the water and I have noticed that I don't feel so hungry either. My problem is I have no idea how many calories any foods I'm eating are, or how many I should be eating daily, all the apps I've found are American so don't have the same foods. If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd be very grateful !
On a positive note, I started my diet on Monday, cut out sugar, potatoes. Drank my two litres of water per day and had breakfast and one main meal, usually steamed or grilled fish and vegetables. I have lost 4lbs!!
Thank you for your time!
