That was what I thought by looking at your first post. Your calories seem awfully low.

Slowly raise your calories to maintenance and eat there for a few weeks. Then drop a few hundred below that.

I'm a tad over 180 also and my maintenece is around 2400-2500 and I'm dieting on 2100-2200 right now (I'm working out 4 times per week with 20 minutes walking afterwards and 2 HIIT sessions per week so I didn't drop calories very much). But if I weren't doing all that exercise I'd probably still be eating 1900-2000 calories to diet.

well i was doing 1801 cals and the weight came off. THe thing is i gain weight so easy when i go above 2k cals. I can gain 5 pounds in one weekend, ive done it before. Thats why im so low. I also run track 5 times a day and weight lift every day. but i have an idea on how to raise the cals jus a bit more.
revised it:
Total Cals: 1869
Protien 227 908 48.5%
Carbs: 112 448 24%
Fat: 57 513 27.4%

You didn't gain 5lbs in one weekend, you just saw a difference in water retention.

You run track 5 times a day? Your problem was, without a doubt, your calories being too low. I'm not sure of the duration or intensity that you're running track but you're calories should be way way above even your revised diet.

my track practice is similar to HIIT depending on the distance of the sprint. 400's we usually go 60-61 seconds, 300's 47-49 seconds, and 200s anyhting under 30 seconds. So it is pretty intense and we usualy do 6-8. Plus the warmups which also involves alot of 55 meter sprinting and then the cool down with a 2 lap jog. How much more up? i mean im 181 right now (jus weighed myself) and my maintence is 1810 2172 cals (181 x 10/12) so your sayin eat 2500 cals?

Maintenance is equal calories going in and coming out. All I'm saying is that I can't fathom how your personal maintenance can be 1800 when we're the same weight, you do far more exercise, and mine's roughly 600 higher than yours.

I can't tell you how high to eat. Only you can figure out how much you need to gain, lose and maintain.
