It is said that the daily calorie consumption for an adult is 2000, or 8700kj.
Thing is, I'm an adult, but because I'm incredibly petite and I don't do a lot of exercise, I calculated that I need around 1300 calories to maintain my normal weight, more than that, I would gain, so obviously, eating 1200 a day isn't going to do much.
That may be the case for many other people.
I think when setting your calorie goals, it should be tailored around your BMR. Not 100% sure how this would be achievable and how it would go about, but suggestions?

that means i need to eat 1786.95 calories to maintain my current weight so yea i think the 1200 thing is a bit stuffed because everyone's bmr is going to be different. Maybe they should make you calculate your BMR and have it as part of the criteria for your daily calorie consumption.

Um. This site does not give everyone 2000 calories. I'm not sure where you got that idea. When you set up your account, it asked for your height and weight among other factors, which should calculate an individual goal for you. If you are very petite and not active, I highly doubt it would have given you 2000. Anyway, if you don't like the goal it gave you, go to My Home, Goals, and Change Goals.

Nah, it didn't give me 2000, it's just that limiting me to 1200 isn't going to do very much.
Would it put me into starvation mode if I ate less than that? Because honestly, I could eat one sandwich and feel fine for the whole day. I'm never hungry, just thirsty or bored, haha, and I feel like I have the same energy levels no matter what I eat, it's just dependent on my sleep.
