In brief: Can't hurt

In many cases the low cal diet can signal to the thyroid that you are in starvation mode thus preventing weight loss.
A surer way to lose weight is by eating a meditteranean style diet minus any grains containing gluten and including low glycemic foods. Eating 3 meals and 2 snacks may show more results than calorie counting. Let me know how you do. 1500 cals is safe and effective.
