You can be active enough that your calorie range is higher, I take in more proteins, at the high end of my recommendation usually and it helps a lot. The spark dietitian (Becky) can make some great suggestions too.
To really answer your question we would need to know exact numbers. What was your SP calorie range? What did you change it to?? What amount have you been eating?
It would also be helpful to see your nutrition tracker---for your food choices could also be closely tied to this. Let me know if you need the steps to make your tracker public. Dietitian Becky

What is your calorie range that you are trying to stay in, and how much were you eating before you switched to eating less?

I changed the calories that I eat to less and I stayed within my calories for the first 4 days. I always was hungry and got headaches. The last 3 days I haven't stayed with in the calories. I have been between 100 and as much as 300 off. I haven't been hungry all the time and no headaches. I haven't made unhealthy choices. I have eaten healthy foods. I have drinken 8 glasses of water everyday. How can I find a happy medium.
