This is a question that has two camps - yes and no. My answer - its fine. but, in your case, perhaps unnecessary if you dont have a lot to lose. your BMR serves as a good calorie guideline for weightloss. Jillian michaels did a whole book on losing the last 10 pounds and had you use you BMR as your daily calorie target. your BMR is what your body needs just to exist, it doesn't account for movement and exercise. So you wouldn't have just a 600 cal deficit, you'd have 600+ whatever exercise and movement contributed. It may result in faster weightloss, but maybe not sustainable in the long run.

Google Harris Benedict calculation. You take your BMR and multiply that by a number representing how active you are. That number indicates your calorie limit to maintain your current weight. I won't spell out how to do all the calculations but from there you can figure out about how much weight per week you'll lose based on how many calories you take

Why is 1200cal a magic number that everyone posts? I assume its based on some average person. Can you define average and are you the perfect average? Why not start with just reducing the number of calories you currently consume by about 100? Exercise and use that target for a week. If you start to lose, fine. If not, then drop another 100 and try it for a week until you find the correct cal count necessary for healthy wt loss. Everyones proper cal count for healthy wt loss is going to be different depending on genetics, quality of food, lifestyle, etc.

1,200 calories, plus or minus 15% depending on body build, is a normal amount of calories for a 5'4" woman with normal activity. If she eats more than that she will gain weight. If she eats less than that she will lose weight.

Saturday, July 27, 2013, 10:47 PM

A 1200 calorie diet is normally based on your BMI/BMR. If you calculate a low calorie diet for someone who is 6'1" you will most certainly not get a daily calorie goal of 1200 because it's dangerously low and can impede even simple brain functions for someone that tall. I am 5'1" so a low daily caloric intake works for me. However, with every 10lbs I lose, I up my daily caloric intake because for me to maintain my goal weight I need at least 1500 calories per day. Just keep using your BMI/BMR calculator. 1200 cal/day is not a magical number, it just seems to run common with sites like MyFitnessPal and other similar pages.

So, I am brand new to this site. Not a safe place to be?

Saturday, February 08, 2014, 11:37 AM

The site is perfectly safe. Its just that scammers go to sites and post links that are totally unrelated to what a site is about. All sites are prone to that. My bet is that many of the links are either viruses or solicitaions for money. If you see a link in a comment that has nothing to do w/ the topic, its either a scam, virus, or solicitation to spend money. However, in reviewing the responses above, I don't see any comments unrelated. I believe I wrote my comment, then the site crashed, and when I went back in to repost my comment, I did it on the wrong thread. Sorry for the confusion.

While there are a few excellent low priced holiday insurance policy packages on the market, you needs to have a thorough comprehension of the different risks. Policies can include relatively high numbers of cover in opposition to medical expenditures, but may well not protect contrary to the costs regarding flight delays or perhaps baggage managing errors. http://www.hotelinsuranceplans.com/

Always avoid unsolicited links. Reputable companies do not need to do this. Nigerian scam artist companies often do.

It is easy. Avoid late dinners. Always eat before 7.00-7.30PM. Drink lots of water in the early morning. And do switch to vegetables but consume non-veg at least twice in a month. There are many other things too. Get yourself some gear and jog on the morning. It is the best.

1200 calorie diet safe?

Hi, I'm currently on a 1200 calorie diet and it works for me just fine. If you're not sure though, why not try a medically supervised weight loss? That way, you're sure that whatever your doing is safe! Hope this sheds some light :)

Problems with 1200 calorie diets

A 1200 calorie diet sounds tempting. I tried it once. I was able to keep up the diet for about three months. I lost a whopping 17 pounds I was so happy. Slowly, I began to eat as I normally did. Then I had a fallout. My body was so starved of food I went kinda crazy and ate everything in sight. I would suggest going on this diet for no more then one week at a time. After a while your metabolism starts slowing down. Your body will think it's starving and as a result your body will save ass many calories as it possibly can. As a result your weight-loss will come to a stand still. Keeping the weight off with this diet is difficult. I suggest you go with a less aggressive diet.

1200 calories

The one thing to keep in mind is that the 1200 calories target is probably 30 or 40% higher in reality. Unless everything you eat comes from a box and maybe even then studies show that most of us underestimate the number of calories we consume by 30 - 40 %or even more. So I think it is safe and also a good idea to take mini breaks on long term low cal diets
