Hi, so I've just been cycling for about 15 minutes and now I feel quite dizzy...I was wondering whether it was caused by not cycling for a year or so. Or whether it was because I've been on a diet of 800 calories a day?

Thanks

I’d say you’re doing too much too quickly, enjoy cycling and taking in new routes and before you know it you’ll be fitter than ever.
Good luck

It's a possibility. Though I'd rather not increase so that I don't gain weight. It could just be the cycling

Eat in a small deficit not in a large one. And yes it is the cycling however it is your diet is the thing that caused you to go lightheaded after 15 mins of exercise.

go up to 1200 calories, that's still a good amount for weightloss - and much more healthy

You need to eat more if you plan on exercising.

I've been intermittent fasting for about 2 weeks for 23 hours a day with only 1 hour eating periods - I'd only consume about 300 calories max. Every time I have tried to exercise, I've felt like collapsing.

Note: I've been fasting because I was originally classified as obese weighing 78kg at a height of 5'2" back in May of last year. I'm trying out fasting as I am still on my weight loss journey even though I've lost 20kg.

Anyone that thinks eating 300-800 calories /day is a good thing is very much mistaken, that is way too low and can be quite dangerous, eating 800/day should only be considered if you are instructed and monitored by a healthcare professional eating less than that is, well it isn't going to end well.

I consider it to be a good thing because it enables you to lose weight as well as learn you don't actually need much food to survive

Let me just point out real quick that health =/= survive. You can survive in the worst conditions and feel like absolute garbage, but you're not healthy. Go to 1200

Thinking eating 800 kcalories is enough even though you have suffered some of the issues it brings and thinking that 1200 kcalories is too much and will cause you to gain weight is a problem.
