1200 okay: 1200 calories is a reasonable calorie restriction. Remember that you are trying to make changes in your life style through diet and exercise that will allow you to not only lose weight, but keep the weight off.

I eat around 1, 200 calories per day my BMI is 22. Is this a good way to get it lower?

I eat around 1, 200 calories per day my BMI is 22. Is this a good way to get it lower?

Why?: A bmi of 22 is normal. Why do want to have it lower? Eating 1200 calories a day will likely keep your weight stable if you are not exercising. To lose weight you need to burn more calories than you consume. It is not likely that you can sustain a diet less than 1200 calories daily, so the better answer is to do more exercise and burn more calories. ...Read more
