I had a bad experience with the 1400 calorie diet that my GI doctor put me on. I was extremely tired and am trying to fix it a bit. I think 1800 may be more my speed.
I was put on it for fatty liver, but have overcompensated and put on a couple of pounds in the meantime. I hope to lose those again, but I need some way to get motivated.
How do you get motivated at the beginning of a self-imposed diet? It is easy enough when a physician tells me to start one. This is far more difficult.
In other news, this election cycle is just bad news. Every article on the internet talks about "sick burns" and other stuff when the candidates talk about each other. I will be glad when the cycle is over.
