down 20 pounds and thrilled with continued progress.
sticking with 1500 calories / day – some days even less, cooking lots of nourishing soups, meals

2007.4.10

not losing weight on 1500 cal
– metabolic rate conditioned to very low, efficient – even reduced calories enough to maintain weight
? stay with current 1500 calories – body adjusting to regular pattern, not gaining and would eventually result in weight loss
? needs to reduce calories even further – 1500 is enough to sustain weight at current activity level
? increase exercise to increase metabolic rate
? increase calories – current level is too low and body is in starvation / conservation mode, need more calories to return to normal caloric utilization
