As you can see from my sig I weigh more than you. Online calculators tell me I can eat 3000 calories a day. I NEVER ate 3000 a day so I should have been losing all along...except I wasn't! By my calculations I'm burning 2000-2200 a day so I eat 1500 ish. I lose about a pound a week.

My point being that everyone is different and you just have to find the right amount for you. My doc says dont go under 1200 and that sounds good to me. Starvation mode is less than 1000 I think.

Oh and YES of course you will lose weight! Just eat less than you burn.
