I've been losing around a pound a week for several weeks now, but I'm wondering if I can't do better eating more, or even less. I eat very frequently, usually smaller meals, and drink more than enough water. (5 or so bottles worth, plus several green teas)
A typical day:
Breakfast, 5 egg whites, 1 low cal pita: 135 cals
Lunch: Summer rolls (shrimp/avocado, no rice, just veggies), an apple, small amount of sweet chilli sauce: 300
snack: 200 or so calories worth of something like yogurt, fiber cereal, a pita, protein shake, etc: 200
Dinner: small chicken breast and spinach on low cal pita, veggies: 225
evening snack: 170
It comes out to 1030, which seems low, but this number usually can go up a bit with the amount of sauce or milk or whatever that I use when preparing things. I ideally try and keep around 16-17 WW points max per day (non points plus.)
My question is, at my shortie stature of 5'1", is this really too low? Admittedly, I'm shy of raising my calories beyond 1100 or so, because I feel instinctively that being the little person I am, I can't possibly need the same base amount as someone with a larger frame and a few more inches of height.
My exercise usually subsists of 30 mins of cardio 3-4 times a week, and plenty of walking back and forth across my school's large campus all day.
