I’ve been looking up posts and articles on people restricting to 200 cals and who are around the same weight as I am (I think I’m around 270, I don’t weight myself until I get to lower weights) and they’ve lost up to 50lbs in six weeks. So I’m gonna try it.

Day 1, Nov 26 2021
Breakfast - black coffee with 1 sweetener: 2

Lunch - boiled egg: 80

Dinner: 80g of garden peas with a tiny pinch of salt, cup of tea with 2 non-cal sweetener and tony splash skimmed milk: 72

Total for day: 154 cals

Exercise for the day:

Morning:
20 min Yoga and stretches
30 squats
20 leg lifts (each side)
Walk Harley for 30 mins.

20 straight leg crisscross
10 crunches
10 flutter kicks
20 heel touches

Chloe Ting 10 min fat burn workout.

I plan to go back to the gym in around 2 weeks and replace the Chloe ting routine with the gym everyday once I’m fully recovered from my back injury. So would be doing all morning exercise + the gym too.

:)

the recommended amount to lose is 1-2lbs per week for a reason: anything more will put you at serious, serious risk of health complications, particularly damage to your heart. losing anywhere close to 50lbs in 6 weeks is an outrageous goal, not to mention unattainable - anyone who has told you they've lost 50lbs in 6 weeks by restricting and exercise is either lying, or got surgery. you're just going to get upset by your "lack of progress", feel like shit physically and mentally, and be even more unhappy.

please, PLEASE do some research about CICO and basic weight loss science. you cannot lose 50lbs in 6 weeks, and you should not attempt to do it through intense low restriction and vigorous exercise. you would be much better off high restricting and being patient with your progress.

edit: also, please use justcico.com or losertown! they're fairly accurate if you input your stats truthfully.

Please take care of yourself. Even doctor monitored bariatric diets for the severely obese (think my 600lb life) bottom out at 800 calories a day, and those are usually specially formulated liquid diets. When it's a diet with real food they're recommended around 1200 calories a day minimum. Those specialty diets come with risks like gallstones and muscle mass loss, but they're used because otherwise the patient risks dying from weight related complications.

It's impossible to get enough protein, fat, and nutrients on 200 cal a day. Please consider bumping that up and getting plenty of protein and nutrient rich food in. Tofu, fish, lean meat, fresh fruit, veggies, high protein meal replacement shakes.

I lost 105lbs in 5 months by eating 500 cals a day and going to the gym everyday. So I don’t think it’s too far out of the realms of possibility which I why I believed all the many things I’ve seen about it as I’ve pretty much done very quick weight loss myself before. Also there’s no difference between someone who’s had surgery and someone who hasn’t if they’re eating the same amount of calories, the person who’s had surgery will just find it easier as they’ll feel physically full.

I appreciate the concern but I’m confused with your response considering you use this forum so surely know a lot of people low restrict…? Sorry it just seems very patronising. But again, I do appreciate the concern.

Thanks for the advice!
I don’t need to worry about Gallstones as I’ve already had it removed a year ago due to rapid weight loss, so no risk of that happening haha.

I totally understand everything involved in rapid loss as I’ve done it before and restricted very low and know how to keep myself safe. I’m adding a protein shake twice a day too so probably like 400 cals a day and I keep the exercise low impact so I’m actually doing less intense than I was when I lost over 100lbs in 5 months 2 years ago. :)

Hey girl if you are doing the 200cals a day I am in. I am currently weiging 255ish lbs and I tried eating only one protein bar a day (200-250cal) and I lost 2 pounds a day during that time. I am planning to do that again, maybe we can motivate each other?

I'm sick of "recovery" and my nutritionist is on maternity leave so I'm down. Why be healthy when I can be pretty?

Praise bounteous
providence if you will
that grants even an ogre
a tiny glow-worm
tenderness encapsulated
in icy caverns of a cruel
heart or else despair
