objectively, no. 800 calories is medically considered a “very low calorie diet”, which usually requires medical supervision

My opinion:
Under 600: Low
600-900: Medium
900-1300: High


I'm the same, which makes no sense cause I'm tall so even high is still quite a bit under my tdee 😅

Yeah same, I’m 175cm (5”9) and there are days when I maintain on 2500cals but still feel guilty when I go over 1300.

Na I'd say 1000+ is higher restriction. 800 mid-range I think.

I would consider it medium restriction for a shorter and less active person.

Depends on your definition of high restriction. I'd classify it depending on your Tdee.

Low: Deficit greater than 1000
Mid: Deficit between 1000 and 500
High: Deficit between 0 and 500

Technically, by medical standards, a 900 calorie diet is a starvation diet.

As someone who used to eat 300 calories a day for years, then 500, I get why it may feel that way to some. 800 to me used to feel like an unfathomable, very large amount.

It may be high-restriction for someone who lays in bed all day & doesn’t have to work or function.
Now that I am an adult & have to do these things.. 1000 - 1200 is high-restriction IMO.

id say its more medium level. depends on your tdee really because 800 can be high if your tdee is around 1400 and low if your tdee is in the 2000s range etc

usually high restriction is ur TDEE take away 500-700

 

i dont like high restriction that much tho as it makes me binge more as does super low cals, meaning 800 is my sweet spot

a few years ago i would have said yes, but nowadays im high restricting on 1,500 cal at most. medium would maybe be 1,000 and low 500 or so. but thats just for me, i realize its more a matter of perspective rather than objectivity

800 for me is the highest tier of low restriction. i low restrict, and 800 is my ultimate max calories (usually try to keep it under 500 on average).

Same! I feel pretty bad if I've had 800 calories. I tend to stick to a maximum of 700, but very rarely, I'll eat 800
