Marcomat Posted February 2 Report Share Posted February 2 Hi guys, I am here because I have been doing calorie restriction for years now, as a recreational athlete / long distance runner, my daily calorie needs are 2750kcal./day My calorie restriction protocol to maximise my health and longevity aims for around 2200kcal daily on average. Meaning just 20% daily calorie restriction, with excellent nutritional intake. However I did not weigh myself for years because I did not want external factors to interfere with my CR practice. Today I weigh myself and I see I am 48kg., my height is 164 cm which makes my BMI 17.8. I am so disappointed about this , my doctor said I am “quite” healthy and my blood work is excellent, but as a health conscious person I am so disappointed to see my BMI is underweight. if I feel physically and mentally great, do you think I can just continue to eat as I do or di I need to increase my calories? what advice do you have for me? To be honest I feel physically good and as a runner I have not experienced an injury in years since I started calorie restriction, I feel my body activates those healing processes way better when I restrict calories and I don’t get as injured Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
