I'm on 1535, I'm 12st 9lbs & 5ft 2".
I've been on that since November on my dietitians advice but haven't lost a single lb. I see them again on Monday and am curious to see what they suggest I try next? I personally think its too high for me, but I'll see what the 'experts' think? I was willing to try it 'their' way first (as I'd been doing that anyway but hadn't been losing) so don't know what to try next. I have an ED history & spent years yo-yo'ing so don't want to go back to that?

Your BMR is what your body needs to tick over. To lose weight you need to eat less than your BMR.
Nope- your BMR is what your body needs to function properly. You need to eat less than your daily BURN, and to burn more than you eat to lose weight. For most people (sedentary) that is your BMR x 1.2

You see I sympathise with the folk above I should be on about 1700 cals per day and I'd eat that to GAIN weight lol. I have to hit far less about 1200 and that is with excercise just to make a 2 to 3 lb weight loss.

There are cals in air I swear :)
