    Can I go lower than 1000 calories?

    Hi. Thanks for your reply. I have started using the cronometer website and so far it has been working really well for me. I have input all the foods that I have been eating over the past few days and it looks like I'm getting all of my viatmins and minerals without the multi-vitamin so I guess I can stop using it for now. I have been trying to eat as many veggies as I can with some fruit and protein which so far seems to be working well for me. I think I'll stick to this for a little longer and make sure I'm doing everything properly before I go lower than 1000. Once again, thanks for your help!!
  2. Hi, my name is Alyssa and I am 19 years old, 5 foot 5 and 125 pounds. I just started the CR diet a couple weeks ago and I am finding it fairly easy to stick to 1000 calories a day by eating mainly fruits and veggies, some meat for dinner, yogurt, and sometimes a piece of whole grain bread as well as a multivitamin daily. It isn't much different from how I normally eat so that's why I'm not having much difficulty adapting. I am using a website called caloriecount on which you input what food you have eaten throughout the day and it tells you how many calories you have consumed as well as which nutrients you are lacking in. So far it seems like I am meeting all of my recommended daily intakes for my vitamins although I would like to purchase the computer program that goes with the "Beyond the 120 Year Diet" book. Should I be trying to eat even fewer calories or should I stick to 1000? Also, I work out 4 days a week, what should I be eating before I work out that doesn't conflict with this diet? Thanks!
