1200 is my target. I am generally within 200 cals (usually within 100) of that on any given day of the week.

In weight-loss mode it was 1400 cal's NO range (prescribed by my Dietician. I stuck with it within 5-10 calories, until I reached my goal (except for the year maintaining after 50lb loss.) Then once I reached my goal I need to average 1600 cal's. More than that over 2-3 weeks and I gain - less and I lose a wee bit of weight. (I keep a daily spreadsheet.)

1200-1550 and I eat within that range. I eat lots of protein more than sparks says I should because I am weight lifting and want to build muscles.

1200-1550 but I aim for 1000 to be honest. I get all my nutrients with 1000.

My Sparkrange is 2,470-2,820, but most days I am between 2100-2400 calories. I just have trouble eating more.

Like Yojulez, I'm also in maintenance...sticking to 1400-1700 cals a day. During weight loss phase, it was around 1100-1300. I still manage to drop a pound here and there too.

I'm in maintenance (although I keep losing about a half pound a week) and my spark range is 1480-1830. I stick to 1700-1800 5-6 days a week, and go over 1-2 days a week (I don't track those days but I know I'm going over, I'd guess I'm around 1900-2200 on those days). During weight loss I originally did 1200-1300 (prior to joining Spark) then 1400-1500 after joining Spark, then 1500-1600 which got me to my original goal weight.

My spark range is 1200-1550 cals but I eat between 1100-1650 and calorie cycle.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

Just curious where everyone is at. I personally shoot for 1600 a day. Too much less than that and my body seriously rebels.
