    Own reduced calorie intake diet
    Thats a heck of a lot of little calories to be taking in, ideally our bodies need around 1200 - 1400 to function efficiently, otherwise they tend to go into 'starvation mode' by where calories are reserved and stored as fat in order to sustain the body in times of starvation, often reversing, or having a paradox effect on weight loss. Just my 10 cents on your calories :)

    As for the counting, it all seems right to me, good job at watching them closely, a lot of people tend to misread and misjudge, keep up the good work.
