So why would that be bad when i am eating enough good foods? i know my diet is fine, i choose the right foods, i drink plenty of water i lose weight like this in small amounts if i dont exercise but i do have energy to exercise if i had the time. I still believe it is more important to just eat what is needed in the right quantities without going to the trouble of working out calorie intake. Maybe for someone who is used to eating 2000+ in a day but for a smaller eater it just means i feel like i have to eat more which i dont want to or eat more fatty foods which i dont want to.

I've had no more than 500 calories per day for the past 2 weeks (minus two alcholic bender nights) and i am shredding like no ones business. I'm still skeptical about the eat more to lose more, but I haven't done any research at all, so take this only as personal oppinion
