Question about proper # of calories to eat
I know all of this varies from person to person, so I guess I'm just asking to see what personal experiences others have had, or if they have some advice.
So, I've checked my BMR, and they all give me around 1560-1580 calories per day, sans activity. I used to go to the gym fairly regularly, but being away from my free university gym means I only get to go when I have a free trial membership to one down here. So I'm more sedentary now, and I just lift weights and take walks to keep from being a total potato. Anyway, my weight loss has stalled for a while now, and I've been experimenting to try and get it to start again, but I'm trying to figure out if my calories just aren't low enough. Right now, I eat around 1200 at most, usually more like some number between 1150-1200.
I'm short at 5'1", so as much as I want to whine about wanting to be able to eat more, if I'm really eating too much to drop the lbs at this point, I'm more than happy to cut back. I don't know, though. Is 1200 cals a day too much to be eating now that I only have 25-30 to go?
