    Are you looking for a single meal that is 800 calories, or for a daily goal of only 800? :neutral: Because if it's the latter, the only idea I have for you is to educate yourself on healthy eating and sustainable weight loss, because 800 calories a day way, way too low and a very bad idea.

    Why not enter your stats and reasonable goals into MFP and follow the plan? It works very well when used correctly. Eating super low calories generally results in a failed plan, binge eating, frustration, guilt, anger, yoyo dieting, regaining more than you may have lost, brittle nails, thinning hair, low energy, and all sorts of fun stuff.

    Personally - my goal has been to eat as MANY calories as I can while still losing weight and reaching my goals, and I have done just that. I dropped the weight and several sizes and have kept it off for over 4 years. I tried eating low cals at first (but not 800 low, more like 1200 and even that was too low), and yeah I lost some weight, but couldn't stick with it, and ended up stopping and starting several times over. It sucks!

    Overeating is no good, but under-eating is not going to help either. Treat your body with some respect and give it proper fuel and nutrition - it will thank you for it and you'll look & feel awesome!

    If 800 cals a day is what you are after, you need to get some medical advice and do this only under supervision.
    That's an extremely low amount of calories per day and it will be very hard for most adults to get enough nutrition to stay healthy eating so little.
    Please, either talk to your doctor (eg. if you are extremely obese and have to lose weight for critical health reasons) or choose a more realistic goal. 1200 cals a day for women and 1500 cals/day for men are a general recommendation. These numbers aren't set in stone, but going below them can be risky.

    Soliciting and assisting such low calories is against mfp t&cs.

    Try re-evaluating your daily calorie allowance.
