Just curious! I have noticed that most people are way under me. Just curious as to how many you eat a day and if you are still losing, etc.

I was up to 1700 but my weight loss came to a halt then I started gaining.

I have since changed up to 1400-1600 calories a day and have gone back down to 214.

So far, I'm losing at 1600. That may change, though.

1800 to 2000. I am still losing, probably about a pound per week right now. More importantly to my mind, on this level of calories: I am satisfied with the variety and taste of my food, getting plenty of excellent nutrition, not driving myself insane over calorie counts, have enough energy to do all the physical stuff I want to do, sleeping well, and feeling super-healthy.

2000 cals a day, 2250-2300 on days I do my strength training (it basically covers the PWO shake I take). I'm still losing weight on those levels (and long may it last)!

Just thought I should add that I started with a lower calorie range at 358 (1600-1800), but my weight loss was inconsistent and I had a hard time sticking to it. Later, when I started lifting weights I actually raised my daily calories, and now I kind of like them here. So I just try and be more active overall.

I started out at 2000 a day, but found that when I was eating "clean" I just didn't eat that much. So now I'm looking at 1600-1800. Probably once a week I go above that. And once or twice I get to the end of the day and find it's only about 1400. But I think that cycles like that are normal, and helpful to keep the body from adjusting too easily to where I am.

1500 and losing. Went to 1200 originally, had always been taught that a 1000 calorie diet was The Norm. Stalled at 1200, still losing at 1500.

Between 1500-1600 and this week because of challenge from my weight loss group I'm keeping it almost right at 1500 calories. I'm curious to see how it works out for me.
