my doctor just put me on a 1000 calorie diet along with prescribing me some appetite suppressants. i gave birth to my son in 2010 but i have found it very difficult to lose the 70 lbs i gained from pregnancy. i currently weigh 220 lb and stand 5,2". i work full time(physical job 8 hours on feet all day walking at a very brisk,fast pace) and im always driving back and forth on the freeway from work to home to my moms and etc. i don't just eat anything i see it was just the timing and the portion that was my problem. anyway ive been doing good my first week but now im starting to feel very sluggish and irritable. i wanted to get some info from someone who has had any success from trying the 1000 calorie diet. what did you eat(breakfast,lunch,snacks,dinner),drink(juices,icy drinks,smoothies,etc) exercises and workouts.thank you very much.

Answer: Depending on your age, this can be a very difficult issue for you. Older women (or maybe you are a man with a womb. I can't be sure with today's science. lol) have a tough time losing weight since their metabolism slows down fairly quickly. Some women need to add a 1 hour workout plan just to stay at their current weight ALONG with cutting their caloric intake. According to some research I have done, there are about 3,500 calories in a pound of fat, and you need to burn 3,500 EXTRA calories to get rid of one pound of fat. That's like sprinting your fastest for a solid 3 hours uphill. It's a pain in the ass to lose weight, but it's all about devotion AND a positive attitude. Doctors aren't always right. You can do other things to lose weight without risking a meal. You can workout more (cardio is the most effective) and keep your caloric intake at 1,500 per day. You have a BMI, which dictates how many calories you need to eat to stay at your current weight (on average). Just eat less, and/or workout more and you should lose weight. The only thing you NEED to keep in mind is NOT eating. Once you reach that grumble in your stomach, you should eat something. Not much, perhaps, but enough to keep your metabolism running smoothly. If you let yourself starve for even a short duration, your body will usually go into a stage where your next meal will be stored as fat. Your fat gives you energy when you're not giving it fuel (food), so your body will prepare for the next time this happens. In short: Eat a little less, making sure it is healthy, cardio daily other than your usual tasks, and what you DO eat, should be done in snacks.

Im 18, 5'6 and 125 I really really need a diet plan of 1000 calories Need to have 10% body fat, so i can see my abdominal muscles (18% body fat now)

Answer: According to the Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator, you have a BMI of 20.2 which is in the lower end of the healthy range for your body. You do not need to lose any amount of weight and trying to lose any amount of weight with a diet plan of only 1000 calories can be dangerous. Females require an absolute minimum of 1200 calories a day to survive. Males require about 1800 calories a day. If you are heavier or are more active, you require more calories. Based on your current Body Fat Percentage, I would probably be cautious as to even pursuing a 1200 calorie diet. Lean muscle keeps your metabolism up which means you burn calories at a faster rate than someone who has a higher body fat percentage. This means that you require more calories than someone of the same weight, but a lower body fat percentage, to remain healthy. Certain functions, especially in females, depend on a minimum body fat percentage. In females, if the body fat percentage drops below 12% it is considered dangerous. Complications of a low body fat percentage include: menstrual irregularities, osteoporosis, hair loss, and a compromised immune system. These are many of the same symptoms displayed by those with eating disorders such as Anorexia Nervosa. At this point, your main focus should be eating a healthy diet with enough vitamins and nutrients. This diet should include plenty of food that will sustain you and provide healthy energy, such as lean protein, whole grains, fruit, vegetables, and fat-free dairy products. Be careful not to go below your minimum calorie intake. If you use google, you can find many resources that will give you an estimate of your Basic Metabolic Rate (BMR), which is the amount of calories your body needs to sustain itself and remain at your current weight. Remember, though, that these resources are not completely accurate, and your best option is to talk to your doctor. As long as you eat a healthy diet (which means consuming enough calories and getting the nutrients your body needs), and you get at least 30 minutes of moderate to intense physical activity on most days of the week, you should be fine. Also, my friend (male), would like to add that he does not find the appearence of muscles, especially abdominal muscles on a female attractive. He prefers her to be toned, but that's it. You may want to keep this in mind. If you have any more questions, comments, or concerns, please send an email through our Yahoo! Answers Profile or at weightlossroyals@yahoo.com Thank you.
