Not healthy: Too few calories- In general the amount of calories you are suggesting would be too low to sustain a weight loss over time. Your body may go into starvation mode and decrease its metabolism cause its not getting enough calories. I suggest more calories- with 20% as protein, 60% as complex carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables, whole grains and legumes. 20% as healthy fats from nuts, seeds, etc ...Read more

Is it ok for a 5'11" 480lb male to go on a 1600 calorie per day diet. Meals are from a delivery service so will be balanced nutritionally?
I think it is great: That you are taking this step! That being said, without knowing more about your medical history or medications, its difficult to say whether or not it would be safe. In an ideal world, where you have no other health problems, this seems like a good idea. However, this should be done under the care of a physician to be safe. ...Read more

I was to be 210pounds now I am 120.I would like to get to 100.I intake 250 calories a day. I take laxitives with each meal and I purge. Is it an ed?
Yes: 250 calories a day is not healthy for an infant let alone an adult. You are starving yourself and likely losing important fats and muscle in your body. Taking laxatives for no medical reasons and purging are both indicative of ed. Unless you are very short, 100 lbs is most likely considered underweight. I would seriously consider seeing your pcp, and if needed a specialist. ...Read more

OK if wt loss goal: There is no substitution for a healthy, well-balanced diet, regardless if the goal is weight gain or loss. Weight gain is achieved if the individual takes in more calories than he/she burns; weight loss happens when calories burned exceed calorie intake. 800 calories/day long term is not recommended and you may need to supplement to be sure diet is complete. ...Read more
I make breakfast my biggest meal of the day. They are usually around 400 calories, is this okay based on a 1, 500 calorie intake per day?
Yes, it's OK: This is fine, though at 400 calories it does not sound like your biggest meal (unless you are having more than 3 meals). Not all calories are created equal, so the source of the calories is crucial. My favorite overall diet for good health is dr. Fuhrman's. See http://www. Drfuhrman.

Am going on a diet. One meal a day to loose weight. In 3 days I lost 10 pounds. With lots of 0 calories of vitamin water. Is this healthy?
Weight loss: Weight loss as described above is not particularly healthy nor sustainable. Most guidelines say that caloric intake for men should not fall below 1500 calories per day. The optimum number of meals is a matter of dispute in the literature, but that they should be nutritious is not. Drinking water is generally a positive in weight loss. Most sources say that losing 1-2 lbs/week is a good goal. ...Read more

See Doctor: If you are truly limiting your daily caloric intake to 200 calories per day there is no way you will maintain healthy weight.

Anorexia is a serious condition that can have very severe complications if not addressed early on. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. Your body continues to burn calories while you sleep. The more you weigh, the more calories you burn. You don't burn as many calories sleeping as you do when you are up and about. I think what the one person may have been suggesting is that if you eat a full meal right before you go to sleep, you are not burning calories as rapidly and the food gets converted to sugar. ...Read more
