Poor way to lose: 100 calorie is starvation not a good choice plus not sustainable..I would cut the carbs ..No sodas and see your md for a follow up..You can get idea's at www.Weighstation .Net.

A 36-year-old member asked:

Can I lose weight safely if I only eat 1000 calories a day?

Yes, depends : Weight loss depends entirely on consuming less calories than are utilized. Your body habitus is a major variable here. If you eat only 1000 calories/day, then you are already consuming less than the average adult requires. Be careful to maintain proper nutrients in those 1000 calories. It can be done safely, but you should have your doctor's guidance.

DEPENDS: It depends on how much you weigh, how many pounds you need to loose and over how long period as a rule you have to cut down 3500 calories to loose 1 lb of weight so sit down with a calculater and find out for yourself how many calories you need to eat daily but if you plan to loose weight too fast, you should do it under medical supervision only.

Do not do it.: To use one pound you need about minus 3000 to 5000 kcal. 800 kcal a day may be really dangerous for your body.Do it more gadually.
