Have you counted EVERYTHING very precisely over a reasonable period of time. Most people who actually eat only 800-900 calories get VERY sick and worse after a couple months of this.
It's not "starvation mode," it's STARVATION!
At these levels your body will scavenge muscles, organs, and bones.
I've found that most people underestimate what they really eat unless everything is weighed and recorded immediatly upon eating.
A relliable chart I have says that an average women, age 18-35 will maintain at 99 pounds with 1700 calories; 110# at 1850.
