If you currently weigh 185, then your daily intake to maintain shoudl be around 2100. If you want to lose, do NOT eat below your BMR (which is roughly your weight X 10).
If you have been eatig 1400/day, it's not enough. You need to be eating more, and more healthier fats (EVOO, avocados, etc).
If you consistently go below BMR, you might see loss at first, but it will mainly be water, and lean msucle. Your body will hang on to the fat.
It's also VERY hard to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time. You need to cut the calories back first to lose the fat, then eat more healthy fatsand protein to "bulk up" and gain back muscle. You won't get all ripped and stuff over night and yeah, it can take a year to lose it all in a healthy way.
BCP's screw with your hormones. Hormones control body fat; estrogen, progesterone, thyroid hormones, etc. They all work together. If you have too much body fat, the estrogen will LOVE it, and it's hard to get rid of it. Being female, our bodies are predisposed to having more fat and keeping it, ancestors and starvation words.
Anyways, try bumping your calories up to 1800 and see if that helps, but don't bump it up with junk food. Don't eat rabbit food all the time either, sure you get full, but it's not going to keep you full. Get some good fats and proteins in there.
