I totally stress over this--how many calories should I be eating? I'm seeing a dietitian next week, but I don't really have any reason to believe any number anyone says anymore, since there isn't any consensus anywhere.

In this one area, my logic isn't strong enough to say "as long as you're losing weight, you're doing fine." and "every piece of data you put in there is an estimate--this is not exact"
