Hi folks!

b-ready--a lot of the reason that people are eating less than the recommended amount of calories is that it becomes really hard to eat that many calories. It is not a good idea to eat too few calories because your body needs a certain number of calories to function properly. Without enough calories you risk losing muscle mass and comprimising natural body functions.

Try to keep the calories up with additional fats...it really doesn't take much. You don't want your body to think it is being starved and try to conserve (stall). Many people eat less, more often. Check with Nat, I'm sure she would have lots of resources on the subject.

Congrats on all the success everyone!! Oh what I would do to get to 140!! Soon...soon....

KC
