Can you tell me how much weight can I lose eating 900 calories a day?

In brief: Note:

Restricting calories below your base metabolic rate triggers starvation mode for the body which causes you to overeat when food is available.
You may lose a little weight at first but then the body will try to store fat to fight starvation--you'll gain it back and it will be harder to lose. Best to work with a nutritionist/health coach on a life plan for steady healthy sustained weight management.
