What a drag it all is. In the past year, i've lost just over 50lbs, and some of the weight at times was muscle. I reached spots where out of frustration I did weeks where cals were below 1500. I've fixed doing that, and have gained a fair bit of muscle finally, and am definitely significantly more muscular than when I started. I'm also steadily loosing as much weight or more at 2200-2400 cal a day vs that sub 1500 a day.
