A frozen banana blended with a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa and a tablespoon of almond meal (optional) - Yum!

Nice plan... Being a fat person, I was looking for this kind of thing! Twelve years old, 4'9, 110 lb... Need to lose a bit! I eat about 1400 at the moment, going to cut about 400 calories I think! Along with about an hours cycling a day and going to be taking up at alley again... Hopefully will lose fifteen pounds by September... Hopefully...

A 400 pound person probably consumes 5,000 calories a day to maintain that weight. So yes, 4,300 calories would prob be ok for a 400 pound person starting off. They would have to continue adjusting their caloric intake when they hit certain points, like once they lost 20 pounds, they prob need to chop 300 calories out in order to keep losing, and continue adjusting along the way.
