Hello and welcome at Spark! I have heard before that too few calories might not yield the weight loss results since the body might go into starvation mode and try to hold on to the fat cells. That is a great question to ask a Spark Coach, though. There is a lot of help here, just browse around a bit. Wishing you much success!
