I think something my be entered incorrectly with your program. I entered you as 5'5" and 27 years old, and wanting to lose 2 pounds weekly.(I just guessed) I entered 2500 calories burned weekly. I still got a calorie range of 1200-1550/day.
Check to see if your weekly weight loss goal is 2 pounds. If you have it set for less--this will increase your calories.
Yes, 2000-2500 is too much. Where did you get that number? Was this your SP range? I think even 1500-1750 may be too high for weekly weight loss. Why did you stop with 1200-1500? Were you feeling fatigue?
