I lose weight when I hang out near the top of my range, or even when I go over. We are all different :) There is no way to tell the range where you want to eat, you will just have to remember.

I eat from mid to top of my range. I find that it helps prevent binges. I really don't like deprivation, so it helps my motivation.

I usually eat around mid-range, but still lose weight if I eat at the top and exercise consistently.

The range is a range for a reason, and we are all unique individuals.

Let us say that Sally's maths worked out to needing 1500 calories daily to meet her weight loss goals.

Something like 70% of the population of women Sally's age, height and weight, would lose weight at about that rate on the 1500. But 15% would need less to lose weight at that same rate, and 15% would actually need more.

Every person is unique and the maths isn't exact for every body that is out there. Experiment and find what's best "for you". That's always the best way. Consider the ranges a guideline, not an absolute.

Make sure you've updated your fitness goals to reflect your workouts... if you've increased your activity, but haven't updated your spark goals, it may not be accurate for you anymore.

If your calorie range doesn't change, you'll just have to know what works for you. The calorie range isn't automatic, nor is it particularly smart. :) That's why it gives you a range... so you can experiment, and see what works for you.

I've been working out more consistently, but not seeing the scale budge. I was trying to stay around the bottom of my SP calorie range, but have noticed over the past few weeks that I feel better and have started to see some progress when I eat closer to the top of the range. Healthy fats (ie avocado, nuts) seem to really help me stay satisfied now, and I wonder if I wasn't getting enough fats in my (mostly veg) diet before.

Is there a better way to adjust the range on SP, or should I just 'know' that I'll do better when I stick around the top? Anyway, I just thought this was interesting, and wondered if others have experienced the same thing.
