ok, time to fess up--- are you someone who forgets little things every now and then, or do hot fudge sundaes never ever make the cut?

I'm sure I have forgotten things, but never intentionally.

I'm totally honest - that's why I'm here. I put in the pizza, the pasta, the ice cream and cookies. However, I'm not eating much of the above anymore, so I really don't have to worry about lying about it.

Actually, I have, on occasion, done the opposite. I have one member of one of my groups who insists that 1200 cals/day is too low. She seems nice and all, but she watches my log and privately tells me she's concerned if I don't hit 1200 or over. So I'm going to be totally honest and say right here that there are times I add in something I didn't actually eat to keep people off my back. And jeez - I'm not anorexic! If I wasn't hungry that day, I didn't eat something only so I would hit a specific calorie count. And there are plenty of days I go over it, anyway, so it balances out.

Well, eating less than 1200 puts your body in "starvation" mode, so you retain more fat rather than burning it. Just by upping your calpries from 1000 to 1200 you can see a significant increase in energy and weight loss. Oftem just eating a piece of fruit or drinking some juice can get you up to 1200, you don't have to be hungry. I always used to think that, the lower the better, but I tried it and proved myself wrong.

"eating less than 1200 calories..."

anything that follows is a huge generalization and is based on the experiences of a collective mass. it does not ring true for everyone that less than that will throw your system into any particualr mode, including starvation.
