I agree that getting exercise advice from your doc will be your best bet. I also agree that 800 calories per day is not enough for good health, and will also make weight loss more difficult in the long run.

I am glad to hear you made some dietary changes. However, 800 calories a day is too low. I know the SP minimum for women is 1200 and for men, 1500. I encourage you to stay within your SP range. Really. It works.

If you are looking for some exercise idea, you can check out the SP Fitness setion.

Since you are temporarily injured, you'll need to discuss exercise with your medical professional. We really can't provide suggestions because we may actually cause more harm than good.

Also, depending on how truly physically limited you are while you heal, you can focus on your nutrition. Healthy living is 80% nutrition, 20% exercise.
