    You need to deal with your situation, I know you're aware of that, but if you don't stick with it, you'll likely have a life full of health issues ahead of you.

    After reading, come back here if you have any questions.

    If not, come back anyway and let us know what you've decided.

    Stick with it, you'll get to where you need to be if you do.

    Double that--2400 calories carefully logged will be more sustainable and still have you losing at a good rate.

    As for recipes, grilled/roasted meat and vegetables are as easy as it gets. Realistically, you're at the point where just cutting out 90% of the "junk" and eating mostly veg, fruit, lean meat, eggs, and whole grains will allow you to easily lose weight. Just use the scale you bought and log carefully.

    Good deal!

    Just to expand on that spradish posted, you can eat whatever you like, as long as you stay within your limit, and are meeting your macros (fat and protein), but also remember that you can eat a couple leaner meals as opposed to one not so lean. It will take a few weeks to get the hang of it, but you'll pick it up quickly, and learn what the better choices are. Just be sure to get a variety, especially fruits and veggies.

    Again, listen to spradish....that's way too low.

    What did you figure your TDEE was?

    For a 400 lb person? No. Absolutely not. Think about the fact that nutrition labels use 2000 calories as their example for average size people's intakes.

    Hey Camm,

    I'm on a weight loss journey msyelf and the others in this thread are giving you solid (and frankly more expert) advice on how to do it.

    What I'd recommend is that you don't take on too many changes at once, that is one sure way to fail (speaking from previous attempts at weight loss).

    When i started my weight loss this time round I just started by getting used to getting up at 4am for 2 weeks, no exercise, just developing the habbit.
    Then i started adding walks to that, starting at 2mile walks each day, I'd add 1 mile ontop of it when i feel i could do more each day now I do between 8-10 miles walking a day.
    Then in December I started going gym 5 days a week following a weights system on BB.com
    and on the last 2 weeks of december i started a proper diet with macro/calorie counting.

    Perhaps this might not be needed for you, but for me phasing stuff in really helped things become habbits and it wasn't overwhelming. Anyways I hope this might be of help to you, best of luck - I hope you achieve your goals!

    Good job man. I myself am restarting my weight loss journey. Fortunately for me this is not my first time. I have lost 100lbs before then 50or so at a time. I'd always just let my weight get back up. Finding liquor really helped my weight gain full momentum. Anyway it started over late December.

    You are in good hands here. I didn't have a place like this on my journeys past. You have been given solid advice that I have to learn my trial and error and the hard way. On a serious note DO NOT subject yourself to a 1200cal diet at your weight. My fitness pal works and works well.

    I used MFP religiously for my big weight loss and I ate what ever I wanted. I just stayed under my -2lb a week goal. Over time I started making healthier choices just so I could eat more. Hey it worked.

    This community is hear. If you mess up don't give up.
