Yeah, really I think there's no magic to it. I've weighed the same since high school. 42 now so not perimenopausal yet, but I probably average 1600 calories a day. I have ADHD so I skip meals frequently because it doesn't occur to me to eat. You'd think this basic requirement of being alive would not be so forgettable, but nope!! I think to some extent my body has adapted to it after all these years. I'm sure there are all kinds of hacks you can try to get more calories with less weight gain .. I know I read that fiber and protein take more energy to digest and only 70% of those calories are left after you subtract the digestive work. Versus like 98% available for pure sugar.
