Totally.. thanks Kathymag - we're all in agreement. Lots of questions about calories for first time C1ers especially those who track their food. C1 isn't meant to last forever. Calories are added slowly over the next couple of cycles, so by C3+ you will be right where SP (and most health experts) agree we can maintain and/or still lose more slowly. THIS switch-up is one of the reasons that the 17DD works so well, and it's great for our metabolism!!

Keep up the great work!

Welcome!!

Especially in C1, please resist the temptation to count calories. The program is extremely nutrient dense, and your body knows that it is receiving all the nutrition it needs at an optimum on what you're giving it. If you were still eating processed carbs, you would still be looking for more food because your body would still be feeling malnourished.

You're doin' fine.....as you progress thru the program you will see that your calorie count will increase a bit - but bottom line is that you really are getting everything you need.....

Let us know if you have anymore concerns -

Hey everyone so im in C1 D7 and I eat until im full but I can seem to eat more then 700 calories, Ive never been much of a eater, except when it comes to bad food :) . I added some whey shakes because I emailed 17DD and they said it was okay. So that brought my calories up a bit. But I still cant get over the 700 mark. Is this okay? Ive read if you don't consume the 1200 calorie mark a day it can slow down weight loss is that true? This diet in the first cycle doesn't seem like you would eat much calories.

Thanks
Cedes
