Actually, I agree with all the other info you've been reading. At your weight, you don't want to starve yourself! However, if you are feeling satisfied eating these foods, it could be okay. One concern for people who eat too little is that they feel okay restricting for a while, but end up binging if it really is too little food for them. Recovering from a binge can be a bear sometimes!

What about some local foods? Do you like any of it? You might not know the exact calorie counts of everything, but there's no reason you have to exclude it. I do a fair bit of guessing when I eat out and there are some resources for calorie counts of non-American foods.
