I successfully lost 3 stone on the 800 calorie plan and achieves this at Christmas and have pretty much maintained that weight since. I still have another stone to lose but due to the current circumstances and some boredom I thought I would try only reducing my calories to 1000-1200 made up of the Mediterranean style foods.
I have done this for the last month and lost between 1-3 lbs only to gain them again (without ever going over 1200 calories) and I just yo-yo back and forth like this losing 1-3lbs then gaining them back every week.
It’s so frustrating as 1200 calories is still a reasonably low calorie intake I feel but it’s just not working. It’s like my body is determined to hold onto the weight unless I severely restrict my calories again?
I’m wondering if I have wrecked my metabolism doing 800 calories and losing weight that way?
I’m getting so disheartened, can anyone relate or advise please?
