I don’t exercise much, but I have cut my calories from about 2,800 a day to 1,200 a day. Will this make a difference in my weight at all? I am currently around 210 lbs and 5’5 (which is bad ). I know that I should exercise and I will start when I find an activity I like, but for now, does cutting calories help at least a little bit alone?
Wow! Thanks for the answers! My mom and I cut calories and she has me on this 1,200 thing. I get so tired and I feel like I need to eat one more meal, which makes sense if 1,600 is the healthier solution. I don’t want to be anorexic, so I’m definitely going to increase my calories to 1,600. And the worst part is, my mom freaks out when I go over even 900 calories a day. She’s lost 70 pounds before, but she gained it all back within like a year. I think she was starving herself too much. I don’t like her diet, so I’m just going to do what I feel is healthy and safe. 1,600 will give me energy to want to exercise. Thanks again. It’s hard to choose the best answer, though. I think I’ll let the community vote on this one.
