Is eating 923 calories a day if I'm 130 lbs and 5'5 safe to lose weight?

Is eating 923 calories a day if I'm 130 lbs and 5'5 safe to lose weight?

Not the best: without an exam, I can only give general information, and while I can say that you are not fat, I cannot say if you are thin (depends on how much muscle).

Cutting calories by itself loses muscle mass, promotes a starvation response (lowr metabolism; harder to lose weight), and lowers nutrients/vitamins. ...Read more
