The guidelines say 800-1000 cal/day and 80-100 carbs/day so you're fine on the cal ct. I average between 800-900cal/day..
Yup, that's exactly right! If you follow the plan guidelines, you will end up between 800-1000 calories a day. Don't sweat the calorie-counting - focus on the plan guidelines. The calories/carbs/nutrition will work themselves out..

You're perfect. Freya's right, follow the guidelines and it's really hard to screw up. I don't pay a huge amount of attention to the calories as long as I'm doing the 5&1 properly, but I do watch the carbs and try to keep them around 80. Different meal choices can impact your carb total differently. If I'm doing high carb vegis then I try to have a lower carb Medifast meal during the day to compensate..
Don't worry about calories. Carbs are key here. If you're following the plan as it's written it will work and you won't have to count calories. Just try and keep your daily carb intake at 80-85 grams per day and watch it do it's magic..
Yep! I never get that !.
