i know this question has probably been asked but here goes... i have 24 points and that seems to equal out to around 1200 calories a day which is not a huge deal, but i want to loose 30lbs and as i loose my points will go down and i know im not suppose to go under 1200 calories so how come people are at 18 points ect... im just concerned that when i go to maintain that ill be at to low of a calorie intake or even i know sometimes weight loss will stop cause you are not getting Enough calories, can someone shed some light on this? thanks!:)

In the first place your assumption of 24 points equalling 1200 calories is off quit a bit. You have to add the calories for the zero point foods you eat to that as well as realize that a point can be from 50-100 calories depending on calories, fat and fiber. I get 18 points a day and that is about 1350 when I run it through MyDailyPlate.
