    success stories on less then 1000 cal. diets

    That's right. I'm interested in hearing if anyone did go on a diet less then 1000 calories and how it worked for them. Please, no posts about garbage like starvation mode and how eating less then 1000 calories is not good for you. Step up, and if you did succeed on the diet tell me how you did it.

    I'll be honest.

    Senior year of high school, Ate no more then 1,000 calories.

    My diet consisted of this

    Morning : Multi grain bar with some eggs
    Lunch- Protein bar
    snack: protein bar
    dinner - 6' subway sandwhich

    I knew NOTHING ABOUT weight loss

    Went from 220-196lbs. In 2 months. BUT, I excersised for like 4-5 hours every day. I played basketball which consisted of 3-4 hour practices, and of course basketball is just all running. Then after at nihgt I would goto the gym. And run for an hour. Burning 1,000 of calories a session.

    I lost the weight and felt good. Then, my friend, who is just as skinny as me was eating a pop tart. I figure what the hell I am 17, whats a pop tart gonna do. One pop tart lead to another. I wuold start eating just pop tarts. Maybe eating 4-5 a day. But you know what......

    My metabolism was shut down. It automatically got turned to fat, it was insane, each day I had gotten fatter. My metabolism was non existant. I gained all my weight back + some over the next month when basketball ended Off a measily 4-5 poparts a day with my regular diet. Then I crashed and ate mcdonalds everyday, eating mcdonalds, with a metabolism that has been starved n shut down due to 2 months of abuse isnt a good idea. Needles to say I ended up 235lbs 29%bf

    But hey, those 2 months of bein skinny were cool, haha

    Stocki, you had a lot of protein in your diet, I think only 10% was muscle loss. Wild guess.

    So you ate an extra 1000 calories (1 pop tart = 200 calories) on top of your regular diet AND stopped burning calories through basketball and you blame it on a slow metabolism? Doesn't sound like a logical leap.

    How did you measure the muscle loss? Calipers? DEXA? Strength? Guessing?

    Stocki, it's common sense you are wrong. If you can prove to me that you lost 50% muscle, I will pay you $50, no lie.

    I'm not extremely over weight as it is. So I wanted to try dieting to get rid of the love handles, fat around waist, and lower back. So I'm currently trying a diet where for 5 days im eating about 900 calories and 2 days i eat up to 2000. Trying to keep fat down to like 25 grams and carbs around the 50 gram mark on the days with the low cals. I'm not too concerned with muscle right now since whenever I did lift I had the body that got too bulky looking not something I wanted. This is going to sound strange, but I'm beginning to think my body runs more efficient with less food in the tank. This is only the second week I've been doing it and I do notice not as much water retained plus my mind seems more clear. Overal not noticing anything negative going on.

    And what happens when you come off your diet ??? After your metabolism shuts down and you goback to eating normal ? Or are you going to eat 900 caloires for the rest of your life.

    Loosing fat and getting healthy is a lifestyle change. Someone like Strongenough, isnt going to go back to eating mcdonalds 24/7 like he once was, thru his journey of loosing 80lbs + he has learned a new way of eating. He has learned what is healthy and what isnt, this journey he took taught him what to eat not to become over weight again.

    Loosing weight just isnt getting the fat off as quickly as possible by suffereing for a few months then going back to eating normal and still being at the same weight.

    You need to start eating healthier, start off small, becuase once you loose the weight the worst feeling in the world is regaining it and realizing all that hard work is gone for nothing.

    Increase your calories, NOW

    go eat a HUGE meal right now to jump start the metabolism.

    At the age of 15 and that was 18 years ago I was 284 lbs. I had been over weight for years. I went on a crash diet. I had no info to help me back then and didn't know how dangerous it was to only eat 300-600 calories a day. My typical diet was 1 sometimes two weight watcher meals a day. I ocasionaly had a either a gall of milk or OJ every few day and a couple of slices of pizza every couple of weeks. I went from 284 lbs to 189 lbs in about 4 to 4 1/2 months. I kept it of for many years till I was in my early 20's and started drinking to much. I never had any health problems from that that I am aware of, but think it was prety stupid and this time I am being more patient eating 2000 calories a day and have lost 75 pounds in 8 months.

    once i went from around 270 to 196 eating about 1000 a day and i was working out regular. I ended up looking very flabby and was not happy with my appearance at all, I hated myself for it.

    5 years later i was 326 and hated myself even more.

    I would imagine most of the sub 1000 dieters that post in here will have similar stories.

    so this couldn't have been because you had less glycogen in your muscles?

    I don't know what your bf% was but it's common sense that you're gonna lose muscle on any diet. At a certain bf% you lose the same muscle:fat ratio regardless. A larger deficit just gets you there quicker, provided you are eating enough protein and lifting.

    And yes those pop tarts did lead to increase fat, some days I wouldnt even eat the subway sandwhich, taking in about 400-500 calores
    This is why I doubt your story. Not saying your lying but that you just don't know how many calories you were taking in. So you think your previous diet was normal? And I just told you that 5 pop tarts = 1000 calories so even with out the subway how are you only getting 500 calories? I just don't think you kept very good records or had adequate protein. It doesn't look like you lifted either so since there was no need for your muscles to work of course you're gonna lose some.

    I lost 30 pounds by doing a lot of cardio, eating veg. soup, salads and tuna sandwiches on white bread. Around 800 calories a day.










    I gained most of it back in 2 months when I couldnt last on it. Enough said.

    I would imagine most of the sub 1000 dieters that post in here will have similar stories.

    Did you magically get to 326? THis is the thing that people don't seem to realize. If you diet and lose weight, you can't go back to eating like crap again. There is no way that your body is gonna have to live off 900 calories for the rest of your life unless you get all the way down to 90lbs at 4% bodyfat. Somehow the internet has found all these magic people that get fat off 1000 calories a day that researchers could never find. It's not gonna happen. I am not condoning people starve themselves but a lot of this stuff floating around is just BS.

    I was following the title of this, "success stories". But you lost me somewhere between that and "on a less than 1000 cal diet".

    There are 2 methodologies that collide many times on this board. Both are great ways to lose weight in their own right.
    1. Life change. 2500 or so calories a day, lots of working out, the whole thing. Slow, 1-2lbs weight loss, and it is life changing, so no weight regain occurs. There is a slight metabolic drop, because weight loss occurs.
    2. Quick and painful. 1000 or so calories a day, mostly weight training (since cardio gives a higher BMR drop), and this only lasts for maybe a month because BMR drops quickly as opposed to the small drops noticed in #1 above. Weight loss is 3+lbs a week.

    The truth is, either works if the person is willing to eat sensibly after their diet.
    Things to mention:
    All diets give muscle loss. Skelooth a big proponent of #1 dieting lost LBM during his 2000+ calorie diet. Romac lost 1lb of LBM in his 1200calorie diet.
    Actual fat loss is possible in starvation... starvation with knowledge is encouraged ie: Protein, vitamins, minerals, efas etc!

    Yes low calorie diets work., im not sure if 1000 is healthy. thats another question. but many people loose weight well on low cal diets. like 1500..

    doesnt matter what diet your on... if you start eating damn pop tarts after you lose wieght. your gonna be a fat ass.

    i lost all this weight and then i ate real bad after, i dont no why i gained it all back, lets blame my metabolism...

    thats an excuse. many people like low cal diets as a jump start..

    but i dont think it can be done for long periods of time.

    but if you do go on low cal diet and lose alot of weight. its possible to slowly up your cal intake, say 100 cal a week. and get to a good level and continue to eat clean and stay at a healthy weight.

    Amatz: I mean, poptarts do kinda suck... bland taste, why would anyone want to get fat off them? I couldn't eat 3500cals worth :P
    Can we define healthy, honestly. The FDA thought they defined healthy with the food pyramid and it got redesigned. RDA requirements are low for things like protein. How many hear eat 60g of protein in their 2000 calorie diet?
    The point is, a 1000 calorie diet can be made to sustain life, which is healthy.

    It is my personal opinion that 1000 calorie diets and the like should be rarely if ever used. People need to start realizing that living healthy is a lifestyle change not a quick fix. If you want to yo-yo that is up to you, but odds are against you being successful. More than likely you will gain the weight you lose back as soon as you return to old eating habits. I know I did when I tried this technique.

    Eating a clean 2000-2400 calories a day allows me to have enough energy and even make some muscle gains while dropping fat %s. So sir, I doubt you will see too many 1000 calorie success stories here. Do the right thing, eat clean, eat enough, lift and the results will come. Trust me.
    Obtaining knowledge is half the battle, knowing how to apply said knowledge is the other half. Executing is the simplest part of success when you have a plan based on sensible well informed choices.

    A knowledgable post!

    As I stated above, I did it...however, what I didn't mention was this.

    -I felt like ****
    -I didn't lift weights, cause I didn't have much energy
    -I still looked flabby/soft (yes, I still had far to go )
    -My mood at work, and around my Fiance' changed (bad .... killed my sex drive)
    -I crashed 1 weekend and ate everything in sight

    There was no balance, my body wasn't getting what it needed.

    Am I saying you cannot do this, No. Am I saying that you will not find fat loss in this, No. Am I saying that you will lose muscle in this, Yes. How much is to be determined, I have no idea how long you plan on doing this. If you want to shock your body, for say a couple of weeks, I say go for it, however... someone doing this for longer than a month is not healthy, IMO.
