I guess I'm with the poster who does the 1200 calories a day, spread out in smaller meals and snacks though I do the range of 1200 - 1498 calories. This range is based on my resting metabolic rate test results. After 13 weeks I've lost 40 pounds and it hasn't been that difficult. If I make good food choices (there are no restrictions), I get plenty of food and don't get hungry. It's amazing how much more fresh real food you can eat compared to processed, pre-packaged and generally unhealthy food of the same caloric content.
I should mention I do exercise almost daily which has surely contributed to my loss, and I'm sure this might be harder for some than others, but its working for me and is very doable.
