Dear all - MFP 'predicted' way back that I should aim for 1200 daily calories. I am pretty sure I distort my portions etc (or I certainly was) as I haven't always lost weight, though over past year I have. This has been mainly through food control (I still eat well) and a bit of swimming. I am now increasing my exercise a lot; I have seen a lot of traffic about it not being a good idea to be under-eating. I am pretty obsessive now about getting the MFP entries honest. (Good cream tea yesterday! well over!) I just did a BMI calculator and it (again!) said I needed to lose another 2 stone to be in the middle of what they say is a health weight range for me; and to be honest that is probably right. It said I should be eating between 1400-1800 (I think) a day. I am really anxious about this but have increased the calorie intake a little.
Should I vary it on days I do do exercise? If I enter the exercise, it adds on the calories it claims I've burned and won't give me a closing entry, which can be a bit frustrating. I got really stuck late November/December but seem to have made a bit of progress recently, so I don't want to sabotage it by eating too much.
Apologies for ramble - any suggestions welcome.
