Hey Echo it's Monte (Antonia's) birthday today.
You are at 1200 what? 1200 calories as your BMR? or eating 1200 calories? These contestants in the beginning are looking for a burn of 6000 on their bodybuggs so it is 1200 in an 6000 out. But the 6000 out is based on a bmr + exercise.
And yes in the real world for 10 lbs is not normal but the more you weigh the faster you can lose in the beginning because being hevier you burn mor calories just to "be" you.
