Women who eat more than 1800 calories a day !!!!

    I'm aiming for 1450 net, but since I burn at least 500 just about every day but Friday and I eat my exercise calories, I fit in there.

    I haven't weighed in in a week, but I started at 223 and after 33 days was 215. So ... so far, so good.

    My net calories were just reset to 1480 today but with exercise I usually eat well over 1800. There is no need to starve!

    I had my BMR tested with the Medgem, and it was 2450 . I usually don't eat that much, but try to reach 1800 or so. I don't count calories directly, so I am base it on estimates which has been effective. I work out a lot, but I hit a summer plateau that I just busted through the past month or so.

    Yay! A thread where the women don't starve themselves and care about having a HEALTHY wight (loss) goal. And a few here who look like they might even lift the occasional weight :)

    i eat over 1800 every day, since i set my goal to my BMR (1845). i also eat my exercise calories, so most days im eating 2000+
    ive only been eating at my BMR for almost a month, so i havent weighed in yet, but i know ive lost inches and can fit in smaller clothes.

    I eat 2000-2500 a day (5'1, 105lbs). It's yummy. Seems like I am maintaining.

    I'm 5'7", 128lbs, and lift heavy weights 3x week... eat between 1600 & 2000 calories per day. I zig-zag between 1600 & 2000 actually, depending on whether it's a lifting day or not. I'm staying at the same weight and losing fat (inches) on this slight caloric deficit while gaining strength.

    Thanks for posting this. There is NO WAY I would be happy or comfortable eating 1200 a day. I can't even really comfortably eat under 1500. I usually eat between 1600 and 2100. My starting point is set at 1500, but I do some form of exercise most days, which adds between 400 and 800 calories and I eat back some but not all of my exercise calories (depends on how I am feeling on the day). If I am hungry, I eat, but make sure it is healthy, like some nuts or fruit or a protein shake.

    I've lost a consistent 5lbs a month for the last 5 months, for a grand total since October of 25lbs. I have another 10-15 to go. You can see my photos here:
