I am so glad I stumbled upon this posting. I am so confused too. I have used this site and another and each is telling me something different. I have not been able to lose a pound in over two months! I exercise 5-6 days a week, for 30-50 minutes a day. I have been using the Biggest Loser dvd's, kickboxing dvd's, and the 30 Day Shred. I consume between 1200-1400 calories a day. NO loss. Can't figure it out. I am 5'4 and 182 pounds.
