Either way, eggs do have a bit less cholesterol than previously believed, that's something that was written up only in the last couple of weeks that I saw (e.g., USDA: Eggs' cholesterol level better than cracked up to be - USATODAY.com
Can you give us some idea of the amount of exercise you're doing? 1000cal is almost always an area where you'll either have energy troubles or your body will otherwise react poorly.
Macros refer to protein/fat/carbohydrate ratios in whatever the food is.
I'm working with a personal trainer 2 days a week, so that's pretty intense work outs, and then I'm trying to get to the gym 2 additional days a week on my own. I've definitely bumped up the calories in the last week, but I honestly don't feel much different than the week I only ate around 1,000; In fact, I feel like I have a bit less energy now...I guess this is all just a work in progress
