Question
I am a very active person, more so than I used to be and over the last few monthes I have lost about a stone and a half. I am 5'2 and weight around 92 pounds.I eat around 1300 calories a day but I am underweight and need to start eating more to make my increased excercise mean more, but I am scared my body has nowadjusted to a lower intake and if I start to eat more calories and I will gain more weight than I want to and end up being overweight. I used to have a much higher intake of calories so it is possible for my body to readjust to the metabolism it used to be?

Answer
It is possible for your body to readjust but you need to do it slowly.  Slowly increase your calories and allow your body to readjust to the new level before moving on.  When you get to the point where you want to be and you are no longer gaining or losing you have hit your maintenance level.  Make sure the calories you add are healthy ones.  Check out www.mypyramid.gov to find out more about healthy eating.
