I probably should say I have plateaued two times for 6 months period despite being on a lower calorie diet. If I eat at 1200 and supposedly I need 2600 calories a day because of my weight and activity then 1200 is more than half my needed calories which seems like it would cause starvation mode to kick in. I am American Indian and we are at least told that we have a genetic tendency to go into starvation mode since our ancestors used to go without almost any food for about half the year in the old days. I don't know if the genetic tendency is true or not, but its what is said about us and it does make logical sense. So sense I keep plateauing when I should be dropping weight like crazy it seems like I might not be taking in enough calories.
