Indeed, 1300 is too low for a guy! It is low for me even Smile

What help do you want? Eat more! Eat quality foods. Your dinner looks tiny. Get some tilapia in there, throw in a few eggs, make a nice sandwich? I don't know. Most people have trouble cutting calories. Putting more into your diet is a great thing. you can enjoy some really nice meals. Personally, I'm able to eat incredible amounts of food, so I have no problem filling my requirement.
If you think my post is too abrasive, harsh, or offensive, you're:
A) Wrong.
B) Too sensitive.
C) Not going to receive an apology for pointing it out.

If it 2700 is the calories for keeping your deit the same, ya you should increase your calories. I saw your diet calendar, your food is really healthy. It has many protein, fiber, carbs and so on..Even you do some workouts..So, you are in your great way. Try to increase your calories.

I was like you, eating low calories, and my weight stopped losing, too. However, i increased my calories, i eat every time i want. I feel full all the time. Then, my weight started moving Wink

congratulations on a great success. I though about the surgery but maybe I will try again without it just because I am scared of knives :D

I disagree with you Lousianagal. If you do Atkins correctly when you get to phase 4 you are eating a good healthy amount of carbs including fruits, legumes and nuts and seeds. You still are encouraged ...
