Hmm wonder if I should be trying to eat more with the working out I day..this is all so new to me and confusing at same time. Hope can get some help and input.
I would say that at your height and weight, 1200 is definitely very low. Especially if you are also working out. It's nice to lose weight fast, but you need to fuel your body.
To the OP I'd start with 1500 to 1700 and tweak as needed.
