Please be careful of having a low caloric intake as your body will go into starvation mode searching for the calories it needs in order to function optimally. I thought that if I ate less calories I would lose weight faster but in fact it had the opposite effect and I got every possible craving you can imagine, and felt fatigued. I experimented with my calories for the day until I found something sustainable and healthy that works, now my intake ranges between 1500 - 1700 per day and I still have a deficit of 500 - 700 calories per day.

I agree with ivy. too few calories in the long run can cause extensive damage to muscle loss, can lose bone density, hair loss, blood pressure issues and so much more. small deficit, slower weight loss, but longer lasting affects with less "bounce back to fat" effect. 1000 calories per day is a small child's amount of food. our bodies need fuel. eat satiating whole foods and avoid your trigger foods. aim for small consistent losses and you'll be set for success

Also- some calories are more ‘costly’ to the body because of the processing they need, so eating more protein, veggies etc and less refined carbs will also allow you to go up over that amount of calories slowly and safely.

Did u guys work out your BMR to see what calories u need in order to lose weight?

I do but I don’t use the Fat secret calculator because people say it tends to over calculate. I went online for a detailed calculator that you input your body fat percentage. I worked out my body fat percentage using another online calculator where you give it your body measurements. FS said I must have 1700-1900 to lose weight but on that I was gaining. This said more like 1400 and that is working for me (I weigh a lot but it’s all body fat which has a low metabolic rate)

I also find that FS recommend more than I need to lose weight. I therefore try stay under 1500 even though FS recommended 1900. And I don't know if this would work for everyone, but I find staying here is easier when I skip breakfast and rather have an early lunch and dinner. Don't try to lose too much at once, that's how you end up gaining it back. A loss is a loss and patience is key. Good luck going forward!

You can go Google Healthline BMR Calculator and then just fill it in and it calculates your BMR quite accurately.
