Re: Does Calorie Intake Depend On Your Size?
I agree with JohnR41. That is VERY fast weight loss, unless some of it is water weight. There's nothing wrong with losing weight, but losing too quickly can make it harder to stay at that weight.
Yes, calorie intake DOES depend on your size. At your height, you likely do need more calories. I am only 5'4 and female and eat in the 1200-1500 to lose weight. I'd definitely up to at least 1500-1800 and I am sure you can still lose weight in that range, especially if you are staying active. In fact, I am very active myself and eat about 1800 to maintain. Running has REALLY let me be more flexible with what I eat, more so than any other exercise I've tried. I think I eat more than many female friends I know who are my size or larger!
