I wanna do a high restriction cause it’s easier honestly for me and it stops people from questioning me not eating and stuff. I eat around 800-1,200 cals and i’m worried I won’t be able to hit my goal weight of 90-85lbs (still don’t know exactly how low i wanna be) can i be underweight with that? I know this sounds kinda stupid but I guess I’d like some validation from someone whose actually gotten underweight with high restriction.

Yes, you can definitely reach those weights through high restriction :)

If you're calling 800 high restriction (I'd call it medium level) then yes, I lose weight easily on that.  And those who can do more exercise than me should easily lose weight on 500 or more calories more than that.

I got to BMI 12 by eating several hundreds of calories more than my BMR.

I usually eat around 950-1000 calories per day.

But my TDEE is super low. The average person could go much higher.

Compared to low/medium restriction the progress isn’t as satisfying but low put me in the hospital and on weight restoration. High restriction (1000-1100kcal) has me as my lowest weight (just took an extra month) and I can do more than lay in bed and lose 1lb a week.
I miss losing 2-3lbs a week though…
