JESSICAMONT32, I underestimated how many calories I needed and it stalled my weight loss attempts for over a year. I was eating 1200 calories and working out daily, but when I cranked my calorie intake to 1700 cals/day, I started losing. Not eating enough is definitely tricky.
I usually eat 1/4 of an avocado. I slice it in half, then halve the half. I count it as 70 calories.
Once I, like you, realized I needed to ADD calories instead of cutting them, I added more nut butter, nuts, and Greek yogurt to my servings. My most favorite thing that I added to get more calories was blending a 1/2 cup of plain shredded wheat, a small sliced frozen banana, a cup of unsweetened almond milk into a smoothie mixture. I can drink it on the way to work.
