I'm a beginner and absolutely confused.. I'm going by the MFP default settings but my Dietician said I should be eating 1600 calories a day, I find it hard to eat 1200, I never had a weight problem until 5yrs ago when I was diagnosed with Metabolic Syndrome and Hasimoto's and now type 2 diabetes. I want to lose 70lbs.. but at times I feel like I'm forcing myself to eat.. I've cut out Mt. Dew, Alcohol, chips, cookies and eating more fruits, veggies and nuts.. but I'm worried if I'm not eating enough calories, does that mean I won't lose weight?..

There is no diet, or set of macros, that is right for everyone.

The standard setting has most people eat 1200 cals. Then they come on the forum and get screamed at that they're not eating enough!

I see this all the time: Help, I'm hungry/not losing/eating clean, work out like a champion, I eat 1000 calories per day and my macros are 50P/20F/30C. What am I doing wrong. Help, help.
The settings are easy to change, but why don't we just follow the default for a while and see how that goes? I know, people are strange, and we are impatient. But why do we trust some random friend/guy at the gym and not a sensible, reasonable program like MFP?
