Well, it's certainly not enough for day-to-day living. That's rather the point. But if you want to drop 1kg a week, that's the sort of number of calories per day you have to aim for. And do the exercise. And make sure you're getting sufficient nutrients. All of which Stitchawl is doing.

I do wonder whether he's counting right. 1kg/week is about 7000 calories deficit or 1000 calories/day. Unless Stitchawl is very unusual, he should need over 2200 calories a day to maintain his weight, so 1000 calories less a day would be a 1200 calorie intake.

I believe that the generally accepted sensible minimum for dieting is 1200 calories/day. But you still have to watch your nutrients.


Personally, I prefer a more gentle diet plan, but then, I don't have a paragliding adventure deadline.
