That's crazy and I'm sorry, but I have to disagree. For some of us, 1000 calories is all we need. For some of us, if we eat more than that, we put on weight.

It doesn't necessarily mean we're lazy and we don't exercise. It's also about body chemistry. Once a heavy person, like I was, loses all of that weight, it literally trashes your metabolism. I've been through almost a year of experimenting with my body, eating different foods, exercising more, eating less, eating more, etc etc etc. And right where I'm at is where I have to stay. I've found my balance. Just because I only eat about 1000 calories a day, it doesn't mean I'm going to end up with anorexia. I have no desire to starve myself. Anorexia is an illness. A very serious illness. Nor have I ever had the desire to eat the refrigerator. Okay, maybe I've had the desire. But I've never done it. Because I've taught myself discipline and self-control. If you don't have that, you'll never make it.

I eat enough to keep myself alive.
