I don't know if this is the thread that ANNE_SP is referring to, but I hope that it answers your question. His post is near the beginning of the posts.

Hi,

Regarding starvation mode, please see the post in this thread from Coach Dean (you will have to scroll a bit or use CTRL and F to search for it). He gives a great deal of information that may be useful.

I hope that answers some of your questions.

Just read that a runner training for a 5K or 10K should aim for no more than a 300 calorie deficit per day, to avoid sending your body into starvation mode. Agree or disagree?

I ask because lately I've had calorie deficits of over 600 calories several days this week. Should I be eating more?

I would really like to lose a pound a week on average. That said, I understand that weight fluctuates based on many different factors. I just don't want to sabotage my weight loss by eating too little.
