That looks about what I would estimate, I would not even be upset with 1500 at the bottom. That said, based on what you said she is eating, she is way low. My lady, who is seeking to lose a person (started at 270), was eating just like her. I increased her cals and protein and the lbs began melting. We can actually reach a point where our body goes into starvation mode and it begins to store food, especially carbs, and slows down the metabolism. Often dieters think if they just eat very little it will help, it actually hurts in more ways than weight loss.
