Unless you are less than 5 foot talk, or pretty much bedfast or chair fast---it is accurate.

That makes sense. I know that when I workout, I do seem to get hungry and am afraid to eat because I am at the high level of my calories. But now I know I can and not feel guilty.
thanks so much

Nope not high. it's perfect. try eating in the lower part of your range on days you do not exercise and on the higher end on days you do. it's all an experiement in the beginning. Your body may do better in the lower range or may do better in the upper range..either way, stay in the range and you'll lose. :)

It is not safe for females to eat below 1200 calories (1500 min for men).
So, it's fine...you can't go any lower.

Does this seem high to anyone.
I am 50 years old, weight is at 185 (had surgery and things went bad, but trying to get back on track).
Now, my calorie goal is listed at 1200 -1550, this to me seems high, but I am not sure.

Can someone comment please.
