    Cutting / 1000 Calories a day / Advice needed please

    Hi there,

    hope you are well.

    i have been cutting since Christmas and gone from 12.13 stone to 11.07 stone.

    as the title suggests i am now consuming around 1000 calories a day i am 27 years old and 6ft 4 inches.

    i am considering cutting my calories back even further as i am still no where near ripped, i wasn't obese to begin with mind, just skinny fat.

    to people who are more knowledgeable on the subject than me should i cut the calories back further or stay as i am and continue with cardio and see how the fat loss goes?

    i am concerned i may loose muscle if i cut back calories an more?

    thanks in advance

    Post a picture but I am certain you lack any muscle and its nothing to do with too much fat. You will not be ripped no matter how much fat your lose just thin and skinny, you need muscle to be ripped.

    As for consuming just a 1000 calories unless you were obese that will just lead to muscle lose and a continuous cycle of being skinny fat. You should stop cutting and actually build some muscle.

    Isn't that 161 at 6'4"?

    Being ripped requires that you have a good muscle base. At your current stats, I'm sure that you don't have such a base. Switch directions and focus on building muscle for a good long time before even thinking about cutting.
