Unhappy caloric intake

I知 a little concerned because I don稚 think i知 getting enough calories. I discovered I have this problem in the past when i did weight watchers. to be within the alloted points range i had to eat a piece of chocolate every day. but on south beach i知 just not hungry and don稚 want to eat anymore. because i知 249lbs i should be eating around 1800 cals/day but i find i知 only getting to about 1500.

I am realy not hungry and don't want to eat anymore than what I'm eating... I'm eating all healthy stuff (lots of beans cause i'm a pesco-vegetarian). And yes I am eating deserts (pb cookies and bean brownies)

Any thoughts/suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.

Hmmm, that is a tricky question. You feel ok? Not hungry? Are you losing weight? Personally, I think it would be ok. I'm not an expert by any means. The standard "rule of thumb" is not to go below 1200 calories. Maybe 1500 calories is good for you.

We'll see what everyone else says about it.

Take care,
Sarah

Hi Nefarious Wytch... I know how you feel, I too couldnt eat all my points, and I was barely eating a 1000 calories on SBD.. I'm trying to eat foods with higher calories - same volume to help me make 1200. Since my main way is by eating red lean meat..that aint gonna work for you.. maybe check with the Vegetarain forum folks on higher caloric food stuffs (?) .. but like Sarahu stated, you are within the acceptable calorie range for healthy weight loss...you sound like you're on the right track..!

Are you losing on 1500? Are you active?

Maybe add more veggies to your salads and to meals?

i can't tell if i'm losing because i'm only on day 2 of phase 1 so i can't tell yet. i am becoming fairly active now ... i ride my bike to and from work (20 minutes each way) and i'm starting a weekly 1 hour yoga class and a weekly 1 hour bellydancing class so i am fairly active i guess.
