Height, weight, age, sex, lifestyle? My burn figures out to around 2400 with 8 hours of sleep logged. This seems pretty close to reality. 1,800 doesn't really seem like all that much. Have you checked other on-line calculators? There is a really good formula in the Diet Tips forum. I've converted it to an Excel spreadsheet I can send you if you're comfortable PMing me your email.
