I have the same issue. I guess we're not eating enough, heh!

But, it's strongly discouraged to eat at the end of the day. Try adjusting future days by eating more in the morning, or just keep the deficit like it is. It's possible that the calorie estimate for "burned" is not correct for you and your metabolism in particular. You know when you feel that you've had enough to eat, and you know if you're starving. I'd say if you're hungry, eat more (on future days), you have the "wiggle room". But if not, go with it. I sometimes have a 1500 cal. deficit which is not what you're supposed to do, but I have to question if some of the other estimates just aren't accurate enough. What I wouldn't do is try to "fill in" calories at the end of the day.

Hope that helps!
