Whyme7 - interesting topic - thanks for bringing it up. Perfect timing as I may have hit a plateau.
Cassie - nice to know that zig zagging can work.
Over the last two months I've gotten comfortable with and used to the amount I'm eating (1200-1500 calories). There have been a couple of days where I was only around 1000 calories - I wasn't trying to go that low - it was just how it worked out. I can manage a couple of really low-calorie days, but I'm a bit worried that the higher calorie days might make me want more food on other days.
