I see a lot of posts about people trying to up their calories? I'm confused... I'm trying to lose weight, about 22 pounds, and have been trying to lower my cal intake. 1200 to 1400 seems like a good level to me and I've noticed others aiming for around 2300 or more? Any clarification is appreciated :)
Some women here are extremely active or are athletes, so they need a lot of calories. I sit on my ass in front of a computer all day and don't work out like I should, so I couldn't possibly stuff myself with so many calories without turning into an elephant. I only need about 1300 calories a day.
By the way, I think you're perfect. I don't know where you can carve off 20 pounds.
