    Hey,
    I'm just wondering if it's healthy/unhealthy to eat between 900 and 1100 calories a day?

    for women - recommended calorie intake is 2000.... 900-1100 is waaaay off. you're not eating this little are you? or is it just a "wondering" question? I wouldn't recommend eating such a little amount if you're trying to lose weight by the way... only makes the body hold onto the fat and slows the metabolism.

    I would say it is very unhealthy, as it is undereating and could lead to major drops in weight and a BMI under the normal range.

    Its best to aim for at least 1,500+ even when dieting as it stops your body from going into crisis mode and thinking its being underfed.

    Depends on your gender, height, age.. If you're a woman, you should eat around 1200 calories to lose weight (on average). Generally 900-1100 is too little.

    Yes, it's unhealthy. But I'm guessing you already knew this.

    it depends on what kind of food you will be eating.. a lot of people survive on that amount of calories. but you need to eat at least enough to keep your metabolic rate going... i assume you are trying to lose weight/.?

    if you have half of an average woman's weight..then is ok
    just a simple question: how you would measure 900-1100kcal? is very hard to keep a diet like that and live a normal life.

    ^^^ Yeah... i guess i wonder too much! :rolleyes:
    I was just wondering because on packets of food it usually says 2000 calories, but it seems a lot and would easily make me gain weight... i guessed maybe theyre trying to make the world into a bunch of fatties lol.
    Cheers everybody!

    Any normal sized woman eating the recommended 2000kcal a day who doesnt also do the reasonably substantial recommended amounts of exercise is overeating...which is pretty much everybody.

    I know. But I'm just saying. 900 calories a day plus recommended amounts of exercise is definitely undereating and i was just pointing that out.
