Ok, that isn’t the best way to put it. But I’m no longer considered obese! I’ve been trying to follow 1200-1300 for forever now and finally got it to stick, and finally my BMI is below 30.
It’s 29.98, but it ISNT OVER 30! I’m beyond ecstatic. It’s only down from here, guys. I mainly lurk on this sub, but thanks for all the help and recipes and tips over the course of this so far.
1200 kcal/day is not for everyone. While 1200 is the daily caloric minimum for women, for men it is 1500, and for teenagers, 1700.
Caloric goals are dependent on many factors, including age, weight, height, gender, and activity. Learn good nutrition and do what is right for you. Consult a licensed professional for help.
1200 kcal/day is not enough for teenagers or those working out regularly. Please consult a licensed professional for advice on losing weight while satisfying your body's higher caloric needs.
We do not tolerate comments promoting eating disorder (ED) related behaviors. Please use the report feature if you see any of these.
You do not need to be following a 1200 calorie diet to participate and get something out of this community!
