1000 cals a day
Thursday, January 03, 2013
Is it really so bad? I've done it a few times by accident during the past few weeks and the scale dropped. So that whole, "you need to eat more to lose weight" mantra is definitely NOT true for me. When I eat 1500 I stay the same or gain. When I eat 1200 I stay the same or lose...slowly. When I eat 1000 I just lose. I'm hitting all my nutrient requirements as well. So is it really that bad to be 200 calories off if you're getting all your protein and fat and carbs? I'm leaning toward resetting my calorie range to 1000-1200 and trying that out for a few months and seeing how I feel.
