In fact I lost a little bit over 50 pounds by doing something very much like this. However my calories are a bit higher. My doctor told me that anything under 1200 was not good for my health. <br /><br />Not passing any judgement at all. You look great. Congratulations on your progress girl.

If woman burns 2000 calories a day and only consumes 800 (the example you've given) then that would be a 1200 calorie deficit. 1200 x 7 (days in a week) would be a deficit of 8400 calories or 2.4 lbs loss a week. Which would be more lost than in the 2 lbs lost in Di's example since in your example the person ate 200 calories less per day.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7298903616671717358.post-57084669967976948682009-09-12T10:53:37.793-04:002009-09-12T10:53:37.793-04:00Just try it and see.

Um...the math is a little off. I...Hey Tears *waves. Um...the math is a little off. If a woman needs 2000 calories per day to maintain her weight, that's 14,000 calories per week. (Simple math, just multiply 2000 calories by 7 days a week.) So if she reduces calories to 1000 calories per day that is only 7000 calories per week. 14,000-7,000 is a caloric deficit of 7,000 calories. A pound is roughly 3,500 calories. 7,000 calories (the caloric deficit created) divided by the number of calories in a pound (3,500 calories) means that she would lose at a maximum of 2 lbs per week. (Assuming that despite your reduced caloric intake that your body continues to burn 2,000 calories per day.; which isn't exactly true as your metabolism slows to match consumption.) The implications are the same (as far as the math goes, for pounds lost per day).<br /><br />Don't get me wrong...I think calorie cutting is definitely the way to got...but even in a perfect weightloss metabolism world, the math is more than a bit off.Dihttp://www.blogger.com/profile/16435732196433481449noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7298903616671717358.post-87526374705918978452009-08-01T06:50:58.540-04:002009-08-01T06:50:58.540-04:00Yeah, but only eating 1,000 calories will mess up ...Yeah, but only eating 1,000 calories will mess up your metabolism.... right?
