I have a very small build (5'2) and very sedentary ... small bones and such. just extra fat I need to lose. (I'm 115 lb) I only eat about 1000 calories a day which some people on here consider starvation ... but it's not like the weight is coming off so fast it's very reasonable... about one pound a week. so that's not starvation right? and I have a load of energy! I just don't want my body in starvation mode and I eat very healthy !!! tons of protein take daily vitamins etc thanks:)
Reason: Calorie Count's mission is to promote healthy and sustainable weight management. Eating 1000 calories per day is neither healthy nor sustainable.
Yep, that's starvation. Not starvation mode (which is mostly a kind of a myth), but just regular starvation.
And adult (over 21) female who is overweight and sedentary should eat no less than 1200 calories. A teen who is overweight and sedentary should eat no less than 1500 calories.
