  • I just wanted to update my comment, as I did not see the second page!!! I do like this list and it is helpful. Thank you for sharing. - 10/29/2015 1:45:37 PM
  • It would be helpful for this article to have more ideas. I recently had a baby and I currently breastfeed. I had a tough time gaining weight while pregnant and had to resort to high calorie treats and now that I am breastfeeding, it is tougher than ever. My appetite is back to my pre-pregnancy appetite (I normally ate nutritious food that are lower calorie) and I have difficulty eating enough for the two of us. My blood sugar frequently drops due to not enough calories, even though I'm not hungry. - 10/29/2015 1:39:52 PM
  • I was hoping the article would say how to get more calories without getting too much sodium and fiber. Even on 1500 calories I tend to be over on fiber and have to watch the sodium carefully. On days like today when I burn 900 calories on a long run I don't know how to eat without going way over on fiber and sodium. - 10/17/2015 1:38:26 PM

    Since I've been tracking calories with SP I discovered that I have a hard time getting in over 1200 cal per day - it frightens me to eat more. But I think eating not enough might be one of the causes of binge eating, and I'm trying to meet my calorie needs now. - 7/21/2015 4:20:00 AM

    I knew I needed to loose weight but I have always been happy my weight never bothered me or my spouse. The only thing the doctor ever said about my health was you should loose weight. No high blood pressure no high cholesterol not close to being a diabetic. So recently I decided to see if I could loose 100 pounds. I started tracking my calories and found I was routinely eating between 900 to 1200 calories a day. I couldn't figure out why I was not loosing anything then I read this article. Since I began to eat myself into my calories zone I have lost 5 pounds in 8 days. Who knew???? - 6/10/2015 6:16:57 PM
  • This article is a great idea, and actually, a real comfort for those of us trying to put on, but as healthily as possible.

    Heavily reliant on dairy though, which I can't eat and is part of the reason I have this problem!!! - 4/12/2015 12:40:32 PM

    WOW, this article is 7 years old, and still applies. I doubt anyone will read this comment.
    My weight has been always under normal and never changed five pounds in 45 years. There was three years when I really should have had more calories for nutrition, but I had to limit my food cost to one dollar per meal, so that would not be available either. But more important is if even I just eat less, I use only nutritious organic food.

    Do I take advice of a doctor? Rarely! I do go there for information, but find alternative solutions most doctors never learn or are not permitted to tell me. If I believed doctors I would have been already dead four times. The last was prostate cancer I refused surgery and radiation. Instead I take graviola and turmeric. Symptoms I had more than a year were gone in three weeks. But with a lot of three time experiments I also know if I eat half as much sugar as most Americans do, or any dairy products, the herbs would fail. The the doctor would be correct; I would have died before then end of last year. - 1/25/2015 3:27:17 PM

    I am trying to eat "normal" food which is eating anything except chocolate, chips, or things like that. I'm eating only a fun size chocolate each day and I ate 969 calories on the first day. Without eating all the junk, I usually do I do not eat enough calories. - 12/19/2014 8:15:16 PM

  • Thank you so much for the information! I am having such a hard time eating over 2500 calories a day! Sounds funny, as the old me would have no problem! LOL Thanks to SP I am down 32.4 pounds!!! :) - 10/28/2014 10:17:55 AM
  • I eat as much as I can but when I finish my tracking for the day, still says I do not eat enough, I be full, and can not eat anymore, what do I do? If I eat anything after like 8 pm. I am sick, so that is always my cutoff for the night. What do I do, I eat all day. - 9/30/2014 8:48:58 PM
  • I am "fat" but I hardly ever meet my minimum calorie goals. This seems unbelievable to people. It's difficult for me to even get 1,500, and people are like.. "But.. you're big"

    I think these tips are great, and I am going to try them out! - 2/28/2014 10:38:13 PM
  • I too have had the same problem.....one of the main things I do is to add things to my everyday items that I eat. Take a tossed salad for instance, I will add a hard boiled egg, or a can of drained/rinsed black beans. That way you are adding calories and healthy protein. - 1/13/2014 3:34:50 PM
  • I find all these comments by people claiming to eat less than 1000 calories daily interesting. I have worked with many people claiming such low calorie counts, but when under supervision and with someone else counting, it is clear that some serious underestimating is going on. Calories burned, on the other hand, are normally overestimated. Yes, some people have slowed their metabolisms down, but it is still important to work with the correct numbers! - 10/6/2013 11:35:54 AM
