    As @VintageFeline said, it's against the terms and also the Community Guidelines.

    1200 at least ensures that you are getting enough nutrition/calories for your body.

    I can't imagine eating less than 1200 really. It's hard enough not to go OVER 1200!

    Not a good idea, if you need to be low try 1200

    Every once in awhile is not so bad, but fairly often/frequently/daily is not so great. I have myself eaten under 1200 when I've been stressed/overly worried, but I usually end up making up for it at some point during the week because I'm hungry.
    To try and hit 1200 consistently, add in some of the foods in the list of calorie dense foods.

    I have been eating less than 1200....and I'm so disappointed. I'm always going in my fridge asking myself "what can I eat?" Most of the time I'm eating fruit, and veg. A lot of it, but it's still not a lot of calories. I need to go to the store and buy some calorie dense food so I'm not scrambling at the end of the night.
    I'm not advocating eating under it. I'm mad at myself for not reaching it lately. I promised myself this will change by this next week.

    Many of us, including myself, lose weight while grossing over 1800 calories. Perhaps someone will come along and post a link to that thread.

    I have days where I eat less than 1200. Not lots less, but less, especially if I had a big salad for lunch and loads of veg for dinner with no potato, pasta or rice. However, I also have days where I eat quite a bit more as I eat out regularly. Every few days, I check my weekly average and aim for that to be at my target.

    I try to stay between 1000 - 1200. It's been hard not eating and I'm craving sausage patties and eggs in the morning. But, the good ole packet of oatmeal and cinnamon to flavor curbs my appetite.

    I only went under 1200 for two days...when I had food poisoning and couldn't keep food down.

    Do not go under 1200...as others have said, it is not healthy.

    I wouldn't worry about a low calorie day once in a while, if you are eating healthy proteins, veggies, fruits. It happens to me too. The day before or the day after is usually more calories and it balances out.

    What everyone has said already. It's nit sustaibable and it's a fad. It doesn't teach you to live, just gets you starving.

    Maybe you need more protein? Be good to yourself :)

    Nuts or nut butter might work for you. Or meat, eggs, cheese, Greek yogurt
