I have been thinking the exact same thing!

A friend of mine just had a baby and was doing WW before her pregnancy. She claims she was about 20lbs over her goal before she got pregnant, and now that she's breastfeeding, she's allowed 32 pts a day, plus 35 flex points for the week. When she stops breastfeeding, she'll be allowed 20 pts a day, plus 35 flex points for the week. I think that is CRAZILY low calorie.

If I don't eat at least 1600 a day, I would gnaw my arm off. I typically aim for 2300 and have been so hungry lately that some days have reached 2400 or 2500. The weekends are "off days" for me because I sleep later and therefore don't eat as much, but I make up for it during the week.

So, yes, I was thinking the same thing about WW being too low calorie when my friend was explaining it to me. Not only is life too short to starve yourself, but I've actually gotten within 4lbs of my lowest weight when I was struggling with an ED, by eating 2000 calories more per day than I was back then.

Please, ladies, fuel your bodies!
