I've recently been pretty regular, but my last period was much lighter than most and only lasted for a couple of days (normally 6ish days).  Today it started up again, about a week later, although it's again pretty light.  This is weird!  I've been restricting to 700-800 cals/day for the past couple of weeks...could this be the reason?  Does this usually happen before losing your period altogether?

Yes. They will start to get very light, maybe even just spotting, then it will become very irregular and light or lost completely


Just trying to get back in my 70's

Thanks for the info.  I'm pretty surprised that the restricting is affecting it so quickly...I really just relapsed a month ago.
