You may need to increase your calories if you find you are losing more than 2 pounds per week.
The following is an approximate formula for calculating a caloric need to lose 2 pounds per week.
Men: (12x weight in pounds)-1000*
Women: (13x weight in pounds)-1000*
*If you replace 1000 with 500 then you will lose one pound per week instead of two.
Losing more than 2 pounds per week or eating < 80 gr. of protein causes too much loss of muscle mass. To lose more fat, it is better to lose weight more slowly.
Never design a diet with less than 1200 calories per day without your doctor's advice. "Work with your doctor!"

Notes: Always balance protein, carbs, and fat in the above ratio at each meal to avoid large increases in blood sugar, which lead to obesity and obesity-related health problems. ALWAYS work with your local personal physician when dieting. Failure to do so can result in severe medical problems, even death.
