Hiya guys- just wondering if anybody else has trouble eating as many calories as CK suggests? It's recommended 1520 for me, and I got close (1380) as an intake, but then my exercise took it down to 870- almost half of what was recommended....should I be eating more, or happy that I'm working off some of my intake?? or both?
I rarely to never eat back my exercise calories so I don't bother. If I felt hungry I would but I don't.
I used to have problems eating the amount they suggested but I did things arse about and started on low calories and I then have built myself up to a normal amount. I am now eating more than the CK recommended.

I usually don't eat as many as they suggest and I like that when you add in your exercise it brings your intake down. I figure that if you're not consuming as much as they suggest, you must be doing something right! lol

Calorie King's resident dietician reccomends eating back eating back half your exercise calories after the first 200 I think. So if you do 870 calories of exercise you would eat back 335 ((870-200)/2=335) I generally dont eat mine back, but i guess if your hungry it gives you some room to eat more
