| | Yikes! Less than 1000 cals?
Hi! As some of you know, I have been on a diet for about a month. I went from eating fast food nearly every day and consuming tons of calories to no fast food, lots of water, fruits, veggies, protein etc and consuming 1200 cals or less. The problem is, now that I've started actually listening to my body and eating properly, I realize I'm not as hungry and will sometimes not even eat more than 1000 cals in a day. I do cardio for 30 min a day and burn around 200 cals there. I also am pretty short so maybe I don't need to eat a lot for slow metabolism? For the most part I have been losing my desired amount each week but am wondering if that is totally unhealthy for my body. If that were even working, wouldn't I be losing way more than my lb a week goal? I've lost about 7-8lbs in the last month. I am one of those people that simply cannot eat if I'm not hungry but I worry that this will end up having an opposite effect on my metabolism. Any advice?
