Having trouble hitting my calories...

I used to have zero issues hitting my BMR calories each day. Used to have to restrain myself.
But...within the last ten lbs lost I have had more and more trouble hitting my BMR calories every day.I'm hungry, but just can't seem to eat as much. I'm eating healthier..which means less calories with more food. Maybe that is the issue?
My weight is still dropping pretty well..I'm exercising and getting a good amount of water.
I don't feel like i'm dropping into starvation...and I'm only under by about 100 cals every day.
Should i be worried??

100 calories is no biggie... I miss a whole meal and my trainer said not to stress just try to eat as much as I can. If you are still losing weight then it's working.

Thanks Jersey.
I have been dumb in the past and ended up dipping really far into starbation mode. once was completely by accident. Don't want to do that again.

If you are missing your intake by 100 calories try a fruit... An apple is about 95 calories...a tablespoon of peanut butter is about 94.

I use to never have that problem when I started trying to lose weight... I was always hungry and who sometimes sercretly binge. But now it's a struggle to keep eating so I understand. People think it's crazy but it's true.
