Unless you are extremely small and/or suffer from one of a select few metabolic conditions you would not be gaining weight over a prolonged period of time with an intake of 900 calories. Ergo you either a) are not counting accurately, which is the most common explanation or b) have seen your weight increase for a short period of time and attributed that to the calorie amount being too high rather than to one of the other possible causes.No I defently didnot have over 900 calories. im not that small- i am 5"5(Original post by Nulliverse)
Either you are eating more than you think you're eating or your metabolism is ****ed. Are you counting and measuring what you eat? If not you could be quite off if going just by the nutrition labels. Also I'd recommend low carb and intermittent fasting until you reach your desired weight then go back to a normal diet. Keep at it you'll lose weight eventually .

Essentially, unless you are weighing everything to be certain you are adhering to X calorie limit, and have then maintained that protocol for a period of, say, a couple of weeks, it is hard to reach any meaningful conclusions about it.

How much do you want to lose?
What's your current weight right now?
Are you a girl or a boy?
How active are you?
Work out your Basal metabolic rate- that's the minimum calories you need a day. You will lose weight as long as you're in a deficit. But under eating can be very dangerous. Better to lose slowly like a pound a week than to try extreme diets.

Not very happy with what I look like. I am on a diet of around 900 calories per day however I am acctually puting on weight opossed to lossing it. What should I do to acctually lose weight?
diet and exercise a bit each day you have nothing to worry about. Even walking is
enough. I am sure you look beautiful as you are. Don't listen to anyone who says
otherwise. Be kind to yourself and your body and you will feel better about the way you look.
Good Luck x
