be careful reducing your food calorie input below your RMR.

My RMR is 1500 cals according to a Web calculator.
I am currently losing 2.4 lbs/wk (3500 cals/lb of fat, assuming I'm not losing muscle mass) but over the longer term I am losing 1 lb/wk so in principle I can stay on this regime.

Post whatever days/weight data you have; I might be able to pull some conclusions out of it using Excel's data reduction functions.

I'm tired too.
Our bodies are like food-fueled machines and they obey the laws of physics. Those laws will not change despite our wishes.
so if my rmr is 1700 times 1.2 for sedentary lifestyle is 2040 minus the 500 in food/exercise...1540 calories a day I should be altering in order to lose 2 lbs a week? Am I seeing that right?
