No set limit here either, although I get uncomfortable if I get close to 800. If I’m hungry during the day, I’ll have some nuts, coffee with one tsp is creamer or some sunflower seeds. I’m usually so tired by the end of the day that I hover around 400 with dinner. Overall, I’m am way less hungry though.

I eat less than 25 grams of net carbs a day and my calorie intake is 1300.
I maintain a BMI of 12 to 13 on this


Can I ask what foods you eat? If you are ok to share that is.

High restricting is the way for me because slow and steady wins the race. As far as I'm concerned, as long as you end the day on a calorie deficit, you have won.

Sure!
Lots of low starch veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, avocado etc.) with higher fat foods like sardines, eggs, full fat cheese, flaxseeds, olives, olive oil, ghee, ground beef/pork.

So I've been doing Keto for 3+ years now (I'm 20, started when I was 16; was a singles skater back then; now ballroom dancer) I went from 3 meals/day to 2 meals/day to now OMAD for just over 1.5 years now. Had horrible hormone issues before so was always hungry; now using Ozempic to control insulin spikes; those spikes literally make me sick and woozy when I ingest sugar.

 

Makes it that much easier to restrict lol.

 

I eat my one meal plus a latte I may want to drink within 3 hours. I used to count my calories in that one meal, but my appetite's so small I could never go above 1000 in one sitting. More like 700-900, especially when I'm dancing 3+ hours 6 days a week. For a while I used to eat once every other day last year, lost quickly but it was painful and my period disappeared again:) 

 

Shifting between Keto and low-carb is really the best way to restrict. People don't ask, your bloodwork is great (within limits) and you get to eat fatty fish and meat:) Your'e supposed to eat till satiety, but I usually stop at the 70% mark.

 

Mind you, I finish all my dancing before I even take my first bit of food for the day, so I do get a little woozy towards the end. I usually dance from 8am-11am+, and start eating at 11:30am. I finish by 1:30 pm. Go home, shower, nap, start studying at 4:30 till 11:30 at night lol. 

 

Feel free to message me with questions- also looking for friends lol
