You have your whole life to lose weight but only NOW to revise for these exams. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that these exams are more important.

Eat healthy and eat at 1000 calories then, lower your sugar and carb intake and do light exercises every day with one rest day. You can hit up the gym all summer.

You cannot spot fat meaning you cannot lose weight from a specific area, you'll just lose fat overall. I recommend HIIT training and be on a carb deficit. I agree with above in saying exams are more important you've got time to lose weight, especially since it'll take a while before you see any substantial difference.

To lose weight, you need to be in a deficit.

1000 calories would be two filling big meals or 4 small portion meals; change it up according to your mood. Keep a log of what you're eating in day for a week and you will realise snacks are calorie creepers.

Up to 2-3kg (sometimes more depending on diet) water weight can take less than a week. If you maintain healthy eating and exercise then 1-2 pounds a week but that takes dedication.

1000 calories is half the recommended amount for a woman. All that would happen (apart from maybe not having much energy) is the OP would lose the weight, eat normally again and gain the weight they lost.

They're better off cutting calories down to 1500.

Step 1: Find a calculator that will help you determine your ideal daily caloric intake for weight loss (usually around 15%-25% beneath your maintenance calories)

Step 2: Eat a balanced diet with a healthy ratio of carbohydrates, fats, and protein. Drink plenty of water.

Step 3: Do some basic resistance training in order to preserve your muscle mass while on a weight loss.

Step 4: After you're satisfied with your weight, increase your daily caloric intake back to maintenance and keep doing steps 2 and 3.

Because at 1000 calories, they're starving themselves? They'll reach their target weight and then just eat normally again because they've starved themselves.

EDIT: I've just googled and almost every website suggests a minimum of 1200 per day for a woman.

You don't understand calories.

If OP loses weight even at 1000 calories and she eats at her MAINTENANCE CALORIES after shes happy with her weight she isn't going to GAIN weight.

What do you even mean by "eat normally" lol

So she's just going to eat 1000 calories forever? yeah right.

And yes, I do know what I'm talking about. I have managed to lose weight by reducing calories to a sensible amount.

800 calories...low carb, fiber supplement drink (so you keep passing waste)...and iron will...your body will not want to lose those 5kg easily. Add cardio if you can...but go slowly.

IVE lost weight by just restricting calories, I don’t watch what I eat I could eat pizza or any other takeout and still lose weight so long as my calories are restricted
