Am I eating enough?

19NewMe

I've started to really watch what I eat after over eating at Christmas. I'm now concerned I'm not eating enough each day. I'm sticking to basic meals (one slice of toast or unsweetened porridge for breakfast, soup and bread for lunch with fruit and my evening meal with a yoghurt for afters). Should I be eating a bit more? I'm not sure...........

Hello 19NewMe and a very warm welcome to the Weight Loss Forum 😊

That’s a difficult question to answer without knowing all your details Our calorie requirements vary depending upon our age, height, activity levels etc If you google NHS BMI Checker it will suggest a range for you. (There’s a link in the Welcome Post below)

What we eat is also important, and we have a menu planning post called Daily Diary that will also be able to help you.

To make navigating the forum easier, we've put all the information you'll need in a Welcome post and here's the link healthunlocked.com/nhsweigh...

Best wishes in your weight loss journey

Hi there 29NewMe -as IndigoBlue61 says, we are all different. You don't sound like you're eating a lot though! If you work out what your calories are for what you've eaten you might have a better idea and check this against recommended guidelines. I work on the principle that however I eat now will be how I eat forever, otherwise I will just like the weight back on. Good luck
