    That sounds rough... but, I think it’s doable. Then again.... I’m always hungry...

    Good luck!

    That sounds pretty low. Why are you on such an aggressive cut?

    Pay attention to your macronutrient ratios so you understand why you feel the way you do when you it starts to hit.

    You can lose weight eating more than that. Get greedy and impatient and it's a recipe for failure.

    I wouldn't restrict too heavily as it will leave you hungry and miserable. Trust me, I've been there! Have a look at the link below as that will guide you on how many calories you should be eating to either lose, maintain or gain weight.

  • I'm doing 1,260 a day and don't feel hungry or fatigued. Depends on the person, I guess. If you feel it's right for you, go get em girl. <3 I also don't really exercise.....so.

    I find if you cut the calories by too much you end up falling off the wagon, I have mine set to lose 1lb a week and I’m losing weight and sometimes not managing to eat all the calories because I’m full, I’d be hangry if I restricted myself too much.

    Is rough but I can!!

    Weight loss is a marathon not a sprint. Most of us start out all fired up, but that will fade over time. Weight loss doesn't need to be punishing. So if you need to up your calories next month......no shame. Just do what you need to, to stay consistent.

    What are your stats and goal? What rate of loss did you choose? Do you exercise? Do you weigh all your foods?

    I've been doing it and not eating back exercise cals - was probably a little too aggressive so I'm adding back a little. Listen to your body - if you are too hungry more than an hour before a meal maybe add a piece of fruit or low fat dairy snack.
