My Experience with this: I am 5'6" & 84 pounds, so BMI 13.5. I am 22-years-old & have been dealing with different degrees of anorexia nervosa since I was 16. But, had some disordered eating way before that as a result of untreated stomach pain & discomfort as a kid. My high weight was 125 when I was 16. My low weight has been 80 or a little less. My BMR is supposedly around 1,058 calories per day. My TDEE if I did nothing but sit all day & sleep my typical six hours per night would be 1,389. If I factor in my active, blue-collar construction job, it goes way up. On my most active days, my TDEE is supposedly 3,004. I cannot imagine eating that much in two or three days, let alone one. It is weird, I feel as if I eat over 1,200 calories in a day that I gain. If I eat 1,000 to 1,200 I maintain. If I eat 800 to 1,000 I lose slowly. But, somehow anything less than 800 makes me lose weight like rapidly. (Like twice as fast as it mathematically should based on how my body does with other calorie amount.) Anyone have any ideas on what/why that is? &, if I can fast for a day or two consecutively, the weight loss is literally noticeable in 12 hours. It is not just me noticing, but my fiance notices it, too. I always think my metabolism is extra fucked when I cannot lose on 1,000 like I should. But, then I think it is not fucked when I lose weight that fast on low-restriction. Weird.
