Is it true that you should not go below 1200 calories per day in order to lose weight consistently?

I'm on a ketogenic diet, will this suffice - .completefoods.co/diy/recipes/minimum (put www before dot)

Are you male or female? What is your height and weight?

Work out an estimate for your TDEE, subtract 500 calories from it, and start there. If you are obese subtract 1000 calories and start there. After 1 month evaluate your weight loss from the previous two weeks and adjust your calorie intake up or down to a sustainable weight loss.

1200 is the general minimum for a female to hit their nutritional requirements

Depends on height, weight, body comp and activity level

I'm personally not fond of keto but if it's something you can adhere to, and you're meeting your nutritional requirements, then fine
