View Full Version : Cut/Losing weight safe ?

09-09-2005, 05:49 AM
I just signed up to that Fitday.com, and according to my input, I'm eating 1500 Calories per day, and burning off 2000 with my current activities.
Is this safe ?

If you dont feel like you're about to passout. I would assume you're okay.

1500 seems pretty damn low though. I highly doubt that is your maintenence (if you're a guy)

I'm the same way. I'm not losing weight at 1700 and I don't want to cut any more from my diet. 1700 isn't enough to even get my macros (factoring in that I like to get 130 g carbs as is recommended by health officials for a healthy brain).

I'm leaning towards adding more cardio over dropping more calories.

I would do a week or two of maintenance, then work your way back down in calories.
