Even if her calories were too low (which, according to her calculations, they're not), she shouldn't have to defend herself to anyone. Pubicly (and anonymously) shaming someone for their honest reporting of food intake is just wrong and mean. I have a hard time believing that anyone would so openly criticize someone if they posted a food journal with more than alot of calories and call them "fat". You also have no idea what her body size is or the activities she did. Maybe she's 4'11 and on a rest day. People are different and respect is so important.

Like @eatingbirdfood, I eat about 1400-1600 calories on the days I don't work out. (I don't plan it that way, it's just my natural meal plan.) Can't say I am ever left wanting or that I have low energy.

Please remember the everyone is different and has different needs. 1500 calories is what I aim for on days I don't workout.

@SFCA - It's about 1500 calories and edamame is soy protein. :)

Wow, eating bird food is right! This diet makes me hungry because I would definitely want more fresh fruit and a protein with dinner. It would have been more helpful to see the calories as well.
