I would try the higher amount. I typically always stay in the range given, and increase when I increase my activities. Trust the system and see where it takes you. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. All the best!

Try increasing a little at a time and see what happens. Nothing to be afraid of. A little bump isn't going to kill you, especially if you continue to eat healthy. If you find your weight going up, back down some.

Mix it up a little.1200 for a couple of days, then 1400 for 3 or 4 days. You will increase satisfaction and be able to sustain over the long term. If you are exercising that shouldn't make a noticable difference in your weight loss, but your body will not go into starvation mode and stop your weight loss like it can if you don't get enough calories.

The choice is mine. I am in charge of me. Live healthy.

Don't be afraid of anything.
We have to find out what works for us when others make suggestions. Right now aren't you eating within a 1200-1400 range? It's almost impossible to keep a strict 1200. The key is sustainability. If you are doing fine right now, relax and keep it up some.

You can slowly review your foods and see if there are better combinations of nutrition, to tweak some improvements over what you do now. Take a deep breath, and then slowly exhale. Kudos to you for dropping 4 lbs.

Okay, I've been here for about 3 weeks. I've been following the nutrition plan and have been steadily increasing my workouts. Now I see the Nutrition Tracker advising me that increased activity without the increased caloric intake can affect my weight loss. But I am so scared to up my caloric intake. I am about 4 pounds down and I am afraid it's gonna go away if I up my cals. Does anybody have any words of advice or suggestions? I don't want to sabotage myself by not eating enough. I've been hitting 1200 or more a day but now its saying to eat 1400 or more. What should I do?
