I keep reading that it's not healthy, but the diet foods I'm eating are quite filling on their own. I've never been a big eater, but this diet has me eating three to five times a day and sometimes I'm just so full I can not stand the thought of eating another bite.
I have over 100lbs to lose and I don't work out (unless you count 2 young kids keeping me busy), though I would like to start. Now I don't know if I should work out too much because then my calorie debt is going to be even higher.
So should I look for slightly more high calorie options to get to 1200 or so? Everything I eat is low/no fat, low calorie, low sodium, low carb, higher proteins and fiber.
I definitely am not looking for a crash diet, it just so happens my intake is so low.... and I don't want to go in to starvation mode and store all the fat I'm trying to get rid of lol.
Thanks for any advice or tips!

Your supposed to start on the high end so that way you can adjust when you hit a plauto...with only consuming 1,000 calories you will lose the weight quick but eventually you will stop losing and you can;t decrease anymore then that...that's even too low...I would up it too around 1,500 to start and then go from there...GL!!! and cardio and some toning exercises area a good idea do at least 30 min. a day
