If we use a rough guideline of 12 cal/lb as an average caloric intake during the lowcarb week, an individual might alternate a day at slightly lower calorie levels (for example one day at 11 calories/pound) with days at slightly higher calorie levels (14 calories per pound) to get fat loss going again.

  • Drinking diet soda was helpful, it boost metabolism. The sweeteners in diet products trick the brain and raises your metabolic rate by 300%. No calories, no weight gain.

  • This is not healthy nor sustainable!! Do NOT attempt this. You will crash and burn. Slow and steady wins the race when it comes to losing weight. You will develop a terrible relationship with food eating on such a big caloric deficit.

  • If anyone tries this diet be smarter than the fool in the video, work out your 1000 calorie a day diet by opening up to wider variety of food groups. You can diet much healthier than this… find smarter, healthier people to follow, not his guy.

  • today I ate only 358 calories but at the same time I feel so weak. I can’t even perform exercise and yoga. It feels like my knees are weak enough in performing such and so my whole body. unlike my first week of workout without starving myself, I did perform workouts very well. almost 30 minutes every day.:( what will I do? my cousin’s wedding is 9 days from now:'(

  • I’ve been doing this for almost 3 weeks and it’s surprisingly easy. So far I’ve lost 16 lbs, and I still have 20 lbs to go. I’ll likely be doing this all the way through till September.

    Update: 25 lbs lost now.

  • Trying this 500 calorie diet I plan to do this for 2 months or so. Day 1: Hungry, but manageable. I ate one apple, two eggs, 40 grapes, and some water melon.

  • On a 1200-1300kcal diet this is what I eat:
    Breakfast;
    2 pears & 100g strawberries. 1 Muller light yogurt pot. Seems to fill me up or 2 poached eggs on toast
    Lunch:
    200g cucumber, 50g humus, 120g smoked salmon, slice of seeded bread and 40g dry roasted nuts (morrisons are the best)
    Dinner:
    Really varies but normally a medium/large sweet potato with a can of tuna and a few tablespoons of light mayo with baked beans or something
    Snacks:
    Seafood sticks (only 20kcals!!)
    Flavoured rice cakes
    Plums and apples
    Toast
    Bananas
    Roasted kale.

    It does vary but that’s what I eat. I do not drink enough either so yeah…

  • Really impressed you’re able to eat out on 1500 calories. Those meals looked bomb though! Great video. My last video was a full day of eating video too!

  • I tend to eat the same way you do but I am trying to be more healthy in my choices. I am a lot older than you are so I have to watch it if I want to live to a ripe-ish old age, haha. Anyway, I just have 17 pounds more to go after losing 35 pounds counting calories. Thank you for stating all you ate. I would say to try to cut down on sugary treats but I’m telling this to myself. too! Anyway, congrats on your loss!

  • I’ve tried the OMAD diet but now I’m on to this one
    Breakfast: skip or 2 eggs
    Lunch: none
    Dinner: Normal dinner usually around 200-400 calories

  • 1200 calories is low but it’s not actually unhealthy. I’ve struggled with binge eating due to stress for the past year. But only recently within the last month have I recovered and put myself on a diet. I’ve been eating 1200 calories for the past 4 days and some days I feel tired but I think I’ll be able to maintain the 1200 for the last 6 days making it 10 days at the diet. Then maintaining my weight at 1600 calories a day. I’m also on a tight budget. So I can’t really afford to eat more lol

  • i can confirm him losing 4kg in a week is legit. I also did a similar diet, 1300 calories per day for a week and i did lose 2.7kg.

  • I love these what I eat in a day. I have been looking for ways to loose weight too. It so easy to get stuck in an eating rut. Your videos help me add new ideas to my cooking. Thanks, Samantha!

  • Mangosteens are my absolute favourite fruit! You don’t need to remove the top first. just hold it upside down and then press/pull apart simultaneously.

  • I was going to start my 500 calorie a day diet tomorrow and doing it all wrong. I like your method. SO glad I found you and this video because now I’m going to start after my next grocery run when I get all the ingredients on your downloadable diet plan. Thank you!!

  • You already look great and slimmer!!! Love this video, it gives inspiration to people that have trouble with weight lost! ❤️ thanks

  • I think, the thing which u are doing can not make your life style, is useless.
    Why to do this much, after stopping these calories restrictions that weight will in multplied form and not even safe to do.

  • I have been doing this for a while and I have collapsed multiple times with my friends, family, and just while walking my dog. While I did loose weight fast its not healthy. My friends were on constant worry.

  • Calories are calories just because a food is low in calories and high in volume doesn’t mean u will be full ur gonna still hungry because is a very low calorie diet

  • Just cut 500 calories below maintenance plus your exercise calories and you’re good to go. No struggling, you maintain your muscle and feel energetic. I chow low sugar, low fat, high protein protein bars as a snack every day. That’ll satiate your chocolate craving.

  • For anyone saying this is dangerous and unhealthy, it is not unhealthy at all. If a person is obese they can do this diet and safely lose all the fat with great results to their health and well-being. This is by no means a good diet for people who are just a little overweight, understand the difference between the two it isn’t complicated, just simple science.

  • Hey man love your content!! Could you possibly do a month long diet video, but keeping calories a lot more sustainable (around 2300 cals Id assume)

  • today I ate only 358 calories but at the same time I feel so weak. I can’t even perform exercise and yoga. It feels like my knees are weak enough in performing such and so my whole body. unlike my first week of workout without starving myself, I did perform workouts very well. almost 30 minutes every day.:( what will I do? my cousin’s wedding is 9 days from now:'(

  • Only problem is that you’re eating multiple meals that are all low calorie, and repeatedly triggering your hunger hormone (ghrelin). To eat something so small, start to build up your ghrelin, and then force yourself to stop? Complete suffering.

    The only thing that works is something sustainable, that you enjoy. I use to think OMAD was completely crazy, but I was holding on to a lot of “it’s totally unhealthy!” and thought it was starvation. Was totally wrong. 4-6 small meals a day is suffering.

    You should try this challenge again with OMAD if you want to do any type of calorie restriction, even at 1200 it’s a million times more sustainable than what you were doing here. That, and don’t get too obsessed over health food, you can still enjoy chocolate/cake/icecream/etc, just in a smaller amount like 300-500 calories. I would suggest a minimum of 1500-1800 calories and 30-60 min of light exercise (that you actually enjoy) a day.

  • I need 500 calories a day to weight loss because of my PCOS
    I walked 6 miles a day and 1000 calorie per day for 20 days but 2 pound weight loss. I need to go through zero sugar, zero carbohydrate and very high protein diet max 500 calorie a day. I need to loose 25lb

    Please introduce some foods and snack for this diet. Also, I recently started to use flaxseed too plus L-Carnitine.

    Is there any protein bar with zero carb please?

  • Okay so anyone that’s watching this should read this comment. I was 175 pounds of body fat, I am now 148 pounds the only fat I have is a tad bit on my love handles and that because I fell back into old eating habbits. I lost that weight in a month. My diet consisted of: Breakfasttuna salad (just with lite Mayo and mustard) roughly 300 calories. Lunch2 Grilled chicken breasts 400 calories. Dinner 4 over easy eggs(NO TOAST) 360 calories. Plus a whey protein shake 200 calories. 1260 calories total. I worked out 3 times a weak only lifting. Mainly bench press, lat pull down. Dumbbells, and squats. IF YOU FOLLOW THIS IT WILL WORK AND THATS A PROMISE

  • Research the matador study. You diet for 2 weeks at a 30 to 35% caloric deficit. Then you eat at maintenance for 2 weeks. In your case you eat 1950 to 2100cals with lots of protein for two weeks then eat 3000 the next two weeks.1200 cals is too low for a man I think 1800 is the lowest that men should go..

  • A 1,000 cal per day diet with exercise will give me 1.7 pounds per week weightloss.
    It pushes me into an “avalanche” region where weightloss rate is the highest possible.
    However, I could never do it while employed (I’m retired now). I’ve only done it when unemployed and retired when I can sleep and rest during the day when fatigued.

  • My family never ate fast food or drank soda. The reason I’m fat is because I eat a lot of cheese and soup/ramen…. I stopped eating and I only eat once a day 1egg spinach broccoli zucchini and water is my meal. I lost weight but I feel like I don’t loose enough weight I tried fasting too but this really takes time. I went from 175lbs to 160lbs in two weeks, I still look the same but I can feel differences around my body. And no I’m not starving myself… I’ve tried different healthy diets and for me it’s just too much food. I’m used to eating 1 to 2 meals

  • I think, the thing which u are doing can not make your life style, is useless.
    Why to do this much, after stopping these calories restrictions that weight will in multplied form and not even safe to do.

  • Calories are calories just because a food is low in calories and high in volume doesn’t mean u will be full ur gonna still hungry because is a very low calorie diet

  • It’s always a good idea to get your hormones checked, your cortisol levels. Maybe a full CBC panel. Restricted calories diets slow down aging process.

  • A question for you! Do you worry about protein intake? These days, at least here in US, it is encouraged to focus on having somewhere between 10-20 g of protein per meal. What do you think?

  • Today I ate 1000 calories. This is what I ate.
    9:00 A.M. Coffee
    12:00 P.M. 2 slices of whole wheat bread + 1 banana = 220 calories
    3:00 P.M. 2 apples = 180 calories
    6:00 P.M. slices of whole wheat bread + 4 egg whites = 188 calories.
    588 calories in total for the day. Since calorie labels are not always accurate, I’m going to ad 50 calories which will result in 638 calories.
    I feel full for the day but I don’t know if eating 638 calories is healthy or unhealthy.

  • I usually eat 1,500 calories a day so I decided to do this for a while

    do not continue this if you start feeling very sick, just eat mainly healthy and remove fat foods

  • Have you tried shirataki noodles yet? I have no had a chance to watch all your videos yet. They are super low cal about 0-15 calories for a pack and can be found at freshco next to the tofu. Amazing in stir fry or even with fettuccini! They are filling too!

  • I’m 5’6, female and I weight 120 pounds and I only ever eat 600 cals a day, I can’t fit much more in my belly plus i get stressed out if I eat more.. i hate seeing my belly get big because it’s a problem area for me.. i may be 120 but i look chubby because I have a high body fat percentage

  • I’m already ‘skinny’, but I have body dysmorphia, I just see FAT every time I look in the mirror.

    (I’m almost 16, a girl, 5’10 and 139 pounds)

    That might sound like a lot, my at my height it’s okay.

    I want to lose 10 pounds in 10 days, based on these results, I think I might need to eat even less calories, like 200.

    (If anyone’s wondering why 10 days, Ramadan ends then and we’ll have this Eid celebration, in Quarantine tho)

  • I eat around 500 calories a day. Ive havent ate normally for a long time. Im not doing this for myself. Im doing this for others, their opinions about me and my body.. the only reason i eat 500 is because of my family. If not them id eadily starve myself..

  • DON’T ATTEMPT THIS You’ll see from other comments, this isn’t healthy and I hope the video gets that across too. Big love to everyone who has struggled with stuff like this x

  • It’s actually pretty hard for me to follow these kind of plans because in my family we usually eat Ethiopian foods so if i try to count calories i have to start from the ingredients but this is what i ate (miser is a Ethiopian food)
    Breakfast:
    Green tea with 1 vanilla French creamer
    1 boiled egg
    Lunch:
    1/4 a cup of miser
    Half of a pita bread slice
    Dinner:
    1/2 a cup of beans
    I am starting it today wish me luck!

  • I love how you’re looking at this whole process. It’s all about learning how to live a healthier lifestyle. You look great:) congrats!

  • H i am 38yr old. 5’9 ht…and 190-200..i eat 700calr. 500cal daily been doing it for 1yr now but I also take multivitamins daily and eat cereal with vitamins in them In work out 5times a week do you think i can keep this up with out healthy problems.

  • My husband and I went on Nutrisystem for a time..2 months. He lost almost 20 lbs and i lost 11. However, we were ONLY eating their food 3 times a day and nothing in between but water. No veggies to supplement. I had no energy by 10 a.m. and could hardly get through the workday… turns out we were down to 350-400 calories a day…so in essence we were starving. We lost muscle more than fat. Disclaimer: we weren’t following the Nutrisystem recommended supplement foods so that was our fault..not theirs. My real point is that we did NOT have high volume foods nor high nutritional foods during those couple months! We gained back all lost after we went off their program.

  • I started a 1000-1200 calorie diet around 2 weeks ago, and it’s been working. My waist went down from 32-28
    And I’ve got more energy for some reason, and I’m always full so I don’t think it’s that dangerous.

  • Im eating 500 calories a day without thinking it. I just cannot eat more its not unhealthy and you dont need to “prepare mentally”. I think that its a little overdramatic.

  • Mind over matter cookie! Switching from one diet to another in contrast suddenly is not healthy and you will likely feel fatigued. I have had a weight loss journey myself going from 13 stone at heaviest down to lowest 9. I’m 5”4 lol and should sit around 10. I looked ill on and off through my weight loss journey but I can tell you that is your body fighting to adapt to its new normality. If you’re already fat and you’re progressively losing weight you’re going to look like shit until your body proportionates. You may look worse months into diet/training in order to eventually look better. One can only put so much muscle on whilst losing so much fat/weight. Fat skinny bodies lol. Anyway your body after 5-7 months becomes proportionate with consistent exercise and nutritional adequate calories intake. I felt terrible when I lost all my fat but within a few weeks of focused training for muscle mass I felt the best I had in 7 years. After a month or so of commitment it only gets easier Cookie. Big ups

  • Look at Roux showing out! ���� another yummy video of inspiration just in time before i head to the grocery store. i may try cutting up my food a bit smaller too because Lord knows i love a big portion of food so that may help me trick myself

  • Hello Dr. Becky…it is me Dr. Zana Nutritionist and chiropractor…..Theoretically for every pound of fat you need to burn 3500 Kcal….so suppose that your husband did not eat at all in 5 days and he can only burn 5 X 2800 = 14000 Kcals, so on this equation maximum loss of weight on full fasting can result 1 pound per day while your Husband lost almost 2 pounds….Also for myself I’m on Keto and IF….I lost in December 6 Kgs = 13 pounds while I was taking at least 1200-1300 Kcals a day…so my conclusion is that this equation of 3500 Kcals for a pound of fat is not physically applicable….there are certain other factors influence, rate of metabolism, heat energy production specially if you are in a cold environment and body metabolic Genetics difference…..so myself I advice all my cases that they can loose at least 1 pound per day IF they stick to strict Keto and IF…
    I watched and I follow your videos
    Thanks…
