Just wondering how you can find out how many calories to stay under to lose weight.. I eat about 1000 a day..if that. That sounds good but I don't know for certain.

Hi, welcome! I recently had a discussion with Shauna, the registered dietician about this same topic and she gave me great advice. You can read it in the rate my plate board under "how many calories?"

Here is an excerpt:
"Your calorie goal here at Diet.com is 1500 calories per day. Going too low can slow down your metabolism consequently slowing down the rate of weight loss (like a car, your body needs gas to run!). Your average of 5 days is approximately 1188 calories, which is still below your 1500 goal"

Idea Keep in mind that the calorie requirements are different for each of us, depending on your age, weight and height right now.

I reccomend you send Shauna and Dr K a private message and get yourself some specific answers. Who knows? You may find out ( like I did) that you have to eat MORE!

I'd like to add, make it quality! Eat enough protein and go for the fiber.
