Recommended Calories - 1200 or 2500?
Well, if your resting metabolic rate is 2500 calories, then you would need to drop down to 1,500 a day to lose 2lbs/week without exercise. 1,200 calories is pretty low for most people of average height and build, especially if you're working out AS WELL and therefore burning even more calories. I'm not going to tell you not to cut back to 1,200 calories, but I'm afraid if you make that drastic of a change all at once it'll leave you staving all the time as well as tired and grouchy. That's not an ideal recipe for success. Why not Start by cutting back a couple hundred carolies a day and adding some exercise a couple tiems a week? You can always cut more calories and add more exercise or ramp up the intensity as you go. It's ultimately up to you, but jumping directly into the deep end of extreme dieting may just discourage you and make it harder to achieve your long term goals.

PLEASE HELP how do I input food not on the list for my diet calendar?
Click the tab marked "recipes"
Most of the way down on the far right is a yellow circle with a white arrow marked 'share recipes' (or something very similiar)
You can use that to add anything with multiple indredients, from a sandwich to homemade pie.

If you're trying to add single ingredient items that can be done under "foods". Search for the food you want (there's probably anoth way to do it without searching first, but I haven't figured it out yet) When it doesn't come up with an exact match, there will be a clickable link to "add food item" or something like that. Make sure you have the packaging hadny though, it will want to to input everything- brand name, grams of fat, service size, ingredients- EVERYTHING.

Hope that helped.
