I am 5'2" and also very active. I run a minimum of 4 days a week. Lift heavy 2-3 days a week. (my PR for DL is 225) plus I have a very active job.

I eat, on average, 1200 cals a day (low carb)to maintain my current weight and composition. It sucks sometimes because I am so active, like it's not fair, that I should be able to eat a few hundred cals more than that, but it is what it is. IMO worth it because I feel so much better when I stay on track.

I have played around with my macros and cals and just have to accept that my body needs less than most "average" people need.

dmartz... I had to lol at that chart. The USDA? I would be huge if I believed/followed anything they said.
