Ive recently lost 11kgs by eating clean. Basically I eat an egg or apple for breakfast, salad and salmon for lunch, almonds, fruit or veggies as a snack, and meat and veg for dinner. I try to avoid anything in a can, any preservatives, anything fermented, and any white refined carbs or sugar. I am also eating minimal dairy. Eating foods in their original state has been the easiest diet I have ever been on, and far easier than calorie counting. I don't deny myself a piece of cake if I really want it, but on the whole I just make more sensible choices. I thought clean eating was a bit of a fad but it has really worked for me.

Im not a believer in counting calories or carbs. If you're eating, fresh, healthy, whole, nutritious foods, plenty of raw fruits and veggies then I eat until my hearts content, exersize and drink plenty of water .

1200 is pretty low. Its the minimum you need to keep your metabolism ticking over. I am trying to eat about 2-300 cals under my ideal daily calories. But I find it so hard to actually track them every day I would rather not count. I'm really struggling with it. I just know that if I eat 12-1300 I am absolutely STARVING after a day or two. 15-1600 is more realistic I think, plus eat back the calories you exercise.

I started eating high fat and only whole foods, no processed foods and the weight fell off. Restricting cal is very dangerous.

I stick to one meal so I have a bowl of salad with an egg and tin of flavored tuna or i make a tomato based soup. Some people eat smaller meals but I find it makes me hungry to eat, its easier to just switch it off completely.

I'm doing it all wrong then. Ive been using my fitness pal and trying to keep to 1200/day plus exercise 3-4 times a week. I honestly thought I would lose weight fairly easily (aiming for 15kg this year) but so far only lost 2.5kg in 6wks.
I gained 3kg when on 1500/day for a month so dropped it.

OP,.I've had great success with calorie counting in the past and used the calculator on the .au calorie king website to work out the amount and always used a heart rate monitor when working out and ate back those extra calories burnt. So if I was having 1400 calories a day and did a 600 calorie workout I would eat 2000 calories that day. I'm finding restrictinguyen my calories for longer than a day or 2 impossible while breastfeeding though!!
