How much water are you drinking?Are you consuming low calorie fiber?It could be constipation or dehydration causing bloating. Sometimes on a low calorie diet that can happen.Try to get a speed walk in there.What are you consuming?Are you eating dairy or bread?Are you eating protein and carbs?

I walk most days 9-12 miles. And drink well enough although an odd diet fizz but I’ve had that before weight gain and during weight loss and never effected me

if you mean 1000 calories that must be food or water weight. i saw the stats you posted. do you purge or use laxatives regularly? if not, are you at a very lw? if not, i would go to the doctor and get your thyroid checked. you could also be plateauing which is quite common

If you're walking that much it's probably water retention.

Overexercise causes muscles to retain water in order to recover. Take a few rest days off from the long walks, do some stretching or maybe some light yoga, and try an epsom salt bath.

If none of that helps, talk to a doctor

I’ve been walking a lot daily for quite some time. Why would it have a different impact now?

I feel you OP. And here people thought I was lying when I said that it happened to me. For me it’s all about the composition of the food. I have to basically eat pure protein in order to lose. Carbs will make me gain immediately even at levels much less than 1000 but I can probably eat more than 1000 cal in protein and be fine even if there is some fat-I typically don’t want to eat that much though LOL so not really sure. Try cutting out the carbohydrates completely. All carbs including fruit so that your blood sugar will stabilize and your hunger will go down. If you have already illuminated carbs try cutting back on fat. This is almost 100% guaranteed to work-And on top of that you will feel better. By doing it that’s why I have no symptoms or side effects from restriction. I would also make sure you are doing your own investigation on the accuracy of nutrition labels and regards to calories and especially carbs because it could be that you were counting absolutely correctly but you happen to eat a lot of food that tend to be super wrong on the nutrition label

I don’t tend to go above 10, mayyyybe 15 at the very most per day. I mostly eat lean meat (beware of condiments and sauces because you can very very easily get several days worth of carbs just from regular ketchup) end prepared low carb foods like smart cakes which are zero carb. I also drink isopure zero carb protein powder with unsweetened almond milk You also have to be careful of hidden carbs like sugar alcohols such as maltitol, xylitol, etc. that are commonly in foods that are incorrectly labeled sugar-free or low carb but In reality are the same thing as sugar. A lot of brands will also label things as fiber that are really digestible carbohydrates. Perfect examples of this would be the ‘45 cal’ Sara Lee bread and other similar items. It sounds complicated but it’s actually very easy once you get into it, gets absolutely the best weight loss results, stops binges, and makes you feel a lot better so it’s totally worth it

Bloat/ water weight is not real weight and it's how normal people think they're losing weight by cutting out carbs. It's like 'don't exercise as much'- doing stuff simply to stop yourself from bloating when the weight isn't real isn't very smart. Cutting out carbs simply because you're afraid of false weight isn't very productive and the more you cut, based on 'loss; via macro elimination, the more you increase your risk of side effects and binging. You will not lose actual weight unless you were eating far more in calories in those carbs than you were accounting for.

 

No one is lying or out to make you gain weight.

Can you tell us what you have on a standard day?

As someone said, it might be the types of foods.

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.

Height: 5 foot 7 / 171cms,
Highest Weight: 180 pounds / 82 kgs, (BMI 28.0)
Lowest Weight: 85 pounds / 39 kgs, (BMI 13.3)

ULTIMATE GOAL WEIGHT (again): 85 pounds / 39 kgs OR LOWER!!!

I would respectfully disagree and say it is smart to take a rest day from exercise once in awhile.

Doing it just to lose water weight may not be the smart reason to do it, but doing it for muscle recovery/your health is a good thing.
