I would talk to a nutritionist for professional advice. Those are tricky numbers to crunch without help. Try writing Coach Nicole or Coach Becky, but I think a live body may be in order.
I know that when I gained weight back it was from too big portions and/or an unbalanced diet. And it has taken time to get back in the groove. I actually lost and kept it off at 1200 once my body had a better balance of food and exercise. Good luck!

Good afternoon guys, brand new to the site I am looking for some advice…. I lost 65 pounds a few years ago (I did it pretty much within a year), and it was very life changing for me. This past winter and even starting before that I’ve slowly gained back about 15 pounds and I have been trying everything to lose it again. I eat really healthy with a lot of protein, I do the 5 small meals a day and work out now about 3-4 days a week. I used to drink a few glasses of wine at night but I have quit drinking wine in January. Now I am drinking green tea at night with a little bit of honey. When I had lost all that weight originally, I was basically eating anywhere from 600-800 calories a day and working out 6-7 day a week, hense why I lost the weight so quickly.. Now I am eating about 800-1000 calories a day. I’ve tried to eat 1200 calories a day but that is when I gained the weight back… But at the same time, it seems like my body doesn’t want to lose weight with the 800-1000… It seems like no matter what I do I cannot lose weight now...
After I lost the weight I started to modeling, I took a break over the winter and need to get back to modeling end of May so I really have to lose these 15 pounds, or at least 5-10 by then… Any advice? Thank you!!
