To anonymous who said "ome one is not proof reading this article. I weight 131x12= 1,572 if I subtract 1,000 as it states I would be eating 572 calories this is not correct. I was taught your weight times 10 to loose weight and times 12 to maintain. " The article CLEARLY states that if the number is less than 1200 that you should follow the 1200 calorie meal plan...don't criticize the article...try reading it more closely...k? And to everyone criticizing the article...You only subtract 1000 if you want to lose 2 or more pounds a week...Like, if you are really overweight...like me. I am 5'9" and weigh about 230...so...230x12=2760 to maintain, -500=2260 to lose 1 lb a week, -100=1760 to lose 2 lbs a week...I have been trying to stay even under that and eat around 1200-1400 a day and am having great success and NEVER feel hungry...you can eat soo much food with so few calories! I am currently losing between 2 and 4 pounds a week! Thanks EATING WELL!
