The Dark Side - Below 1200 AKA starvation mode

Has anyone gone below 1200 to get results and lied to MFP so they didn't get in trouble? The truth will set you fat free.

    my net is constantly below 1200. I've seen some journals with only 500 per day.

    the only "trouble" you'll get into is with yourself really, you'll waste muscle and keep fat, leading to a small but flabby body, gross. and youll be hungry all the time

    I gave up on lying to the website. If I have an 800 calorie day, then so be it.
  • Constantly going under 1200 because I'm a student, between jobs, and broke as hell. Come at me

    How are you "lying" to MFP? Are you adding extra food to your diary so your friends don't know how little you eat? Because that's some super unhealthy behavior right there.

    The application itself isn't gonna report you to the ED police for what your diary says.

    In before the lock!


    And no, that is freaking stupid. Why would you restrict yourself that way?
  • When I run over 10 miles I rarely make 1200 with the deficit. And if I'm not that hungry some days I'm not going to eat for the sake of hitting a certain mark.

    i eat anywhere from 0-800 calories in a day, and i feel fine. my body is lean. im not very strong but i never have been. if i eat anymore i feel sick
    Why I want to get in shape
    health

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but <800 calories will not help you have better health.

    Lying to the website? Will the website spank you otherwise? Yes, you can lose weight below 1200 calories just fine, no you wont go into the mythical Starvation Mode, and yes it is not particularly healthy.

    my exercise deficit brings me under 1200, I will make up the calories if i'm hungry... otherwise i wont.

    I think starvation is a long way a way for my body, there is enough fat stored that I could climb into a log and sleep for the whole winter.
