I recommend following Coach Jen's advice so that you're not working against yourself.

How many calories are you eating now? Why do you want to decrease your calories to 1200? And how many calories do you burn each week? I will tell you that the closer I got to my goal weight, the more I exercised, and the more I ate (good, nutritious, healthy food though)

If you go to your Start page, down the left side under My Goals you'll see your weight loss goal. Click on CHANGE next to it, and update your current weight. That may or may not change your recommended calorie range, but I wouldn't recommend lowering your calories to 1200 just because you lost weight. You might actually need to be eating more than that, since eating too few calories will hurt your weight loss efforts just as much as eating too many will.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

I believe spark will automatically do that as you put in your weight.

I've lost 21 lbs in the last 3 months. I would like to know how to change my calorie requirements on my nutritional tracker. I want to reduce it to 1200. emoticon
