    Greetings fellow TSRians.

    As of today, I am starting a new diet plan. It is as follows:

    Monday: Unlimited calories.
    Tuesday: 800 or less calories.
    Wednesday: 900 or less calories.
    Thursday: 1000 or less calories.
    Friday: 900 or less calories.
    Saturday: 1000 or less calories.
    Sunday: 1000 or less calories.

    Please no "eat everything in moderation", "just eat healthy and exercise" comments. Apart from on Mondays, I will eat healthily and exercise every day.
    Also, I'm not talking to my GP about my disordered eating. They have been programmed to not believe what I'm experiencing anyway.
    Don't tell me what to eat or do; you have probably been programmed too.
    Just tell me the possible bad consequences of eating like this.

    Thanks .

    You have an eating disorder. Please see a psychiatrist for help.

    Bad consequences? You'll lose a significant portion of healthy lean tissue and muscle mass, you'll feel very ill to the point of dizziness and vomiting, peeing often burns like Hell. Sure your weight will drop on the scale, but what's the cost? Your body will become accustomed to the weekly refeed quickly enough and you're back to square one.

    Good luck if you go for it. I barely lasted a week below BMR, but I'm hugely active.

    'Fewer' not 'less'. You can count calories.

    I don't count them properly- I just round them to the next hundred.

    That is your major criticism of this post?
    Not the disastrously unhealthy portions.

    I don't have an eating disorder. Plus, my BMI is 18.7 so I am healthy. What would a psychiatrist do to help me?

    E.g. yesterday, I ate a punnet of cherries and a bean burger with salad.

    Today I have eaten some more raspberries, a small yogurt with nutella and biscoff spread added, 3/4 pack of Iceland's bakery mini choc chip cookies, 4 Tesco's Finest chocolate filled doughnuts, 2 cups of coffee, a caramel button cornetto and a jacket potato with bolognaise and cheese.
    So yeah, Mondays are my cheat/binge days.

    Sometimes with replies to threads like these, less is more. The OP doesn't want a critique of the proposed diet. Not in a meaningful sense of the word, anyway.

    I have already been doing this diet for over a month and I feel fine. No dizziness or feelings of being unwell.

    Jesus. Those are some poverty calories. Bump them up to at least 1600 a day if you're female or at least 2500 a day if you're male. All dependant on your weight as well (could add even more calories). But what's for sure, rn you have an eating disorder. Get help

    Is yours to have a career in the healthcare sector working with vulnerable people? I hope not.
    Pretty rich coming from you anyway, I have read some of the things you post. Aren't you the woman who tried to make fairy cakes with vodka?

    What would this "help" entail?

    Convincing you more food is good for you. Eat at least as much as your body needs. You can calculate this online. But I can assure you it's definetly over 1000 calories a day.

    A diet like this would make you ugly. Your hair will go horrible, your skin will suffer, your health will suffer, your metabolism would drastically slow down, your breath would smell, all your muscle will be lost, you’ll have no energy, you’ll probably stop burning fat and any slight increase in calories will result in your body converting that to fat if it isn’t doing that with the existing calories anyway.

    But hey at least you’ll be skinny right? Well even that’s arguable, it’ll be fat loss that’s slowly killing you.

    If your BMI is 18.7 why are you dieting? That's on the lower end of healthy, you really don't need to lose any weight...

    It could have been worse - I keep hearing 'amount of people', from those that I assume don't usually chop them up.
