Cheryl, I just can't get full on 1200 calories. And I DO eat a very high volume diet, with an average of 10 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. My minimum seems to be 1300. I can get by on 1300 - 1400, but I'm happiest at 1500 - 1600. I just don't lose well as that level at my current weight.

My personal feeling is that I want to eat as much as I can for as long as I can. I have never had any desire to eat 1200 calories per day, if I could lose at an acceptable rate at 1600 calories per day. And I sure don't want to be hungry, because that leads to binging in my case.

160 lbs lost!
