Welcome to CC'ing. Great thing is, you can eat what you want in moderation. Chocolate can still be on the menu, yay! I'd be interested to see what the website was too!!

helloooo, good luck in your journey. those cals sound spot on.

keep us updated - i'm on 1300 per day but i'm intrigued to find out what would happen if i upped them, then reduced them. my weightloss has slowed to almost a standstill which is v frustrating, so i'm up for trying anything but starvation!

ps. oooh, have just checked out my calorie cycling needs according to that website, looks pretty do-able, and it would be nice to have a couple of days where the cals are slightly higher. mine went like this:

monday 1248
tuesday 1248
wednesday 1498
thursday 1248
friday 1248
saturday 1373
sunday 1248

seems it might help me overcome my 'going over' days withougt feeling quite so guilty.

if my gym shake up doesn't go to plan, i may try this as a way of kick-starting my snail-like metabolism!
