Yes, exactly, because the body needed that fat to create energy for the very low calorie
intake. SO you really dont lose the fat, you use the fat, which in turn is like losing but not. And yet still, is not a pound a day.
By the way, the 2000-2500 is for people who work out, and eat healthy. If you are overweight, not working out, and dont have a physical routine in any way, you shoudl be eating about 1500 or arond there. And all those are for maintenance not for losing. 1000-1200 to lose.
