1. Eat every 3 hours.
2. Exercise regulary
3. Don't drop to 1300 too fast. Drop your calories to 1500 for a few weeks...the drop it again to 1300.

Well the calories you need depend on more than just how much you weigh..... we've established your goals, weight, age... now we would need to know more about your daily activities, and workouts and what your current diet looks like to help you out. Just cause you weigh a certain amount doesn't mean that you need a specific amount of calories.....more factors into it than that.
