I have been trying to change my lifestyle habits since around mid January and have lost about 7lbs so far. I have upped my exercise (well started exercise should I say). When I started the NHS BMI calculator stated that I needed to have a minimum of 1400 calories. I have input my details again since the 7lb loss and it has now gone up to at least 1500ish. In the past I have always worked to a maximum daily calorie intake of 1200 so I am struggling with getting my head around how eating more will help me lose weight? Has this worked for anyone or have you had to restrict more than what the BMI calculator tells you?
