Signs You’re Not Eating Enough Calories on Your Weight-Loss Diet

Weight loss relies on a fairly straightforward equation: To drop the number on the scale, you must consume fewer calories than your body burns. With this in mind, it seems logical that cutting as many calories as possible can help you shed pounds faster. Makes sense, right?

News flash: Your weight-loss diet shouldn’t leave you starving.

Hate to break it to you, but this calorie-slashing strategy may actually be sabotaging your efforts. In fact, eating too far below your specific calorie needs not only halts weight loss but may also negatively affect your health.

The rub is that everyone’s calorie needs are different, so there’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to calorie counts for weight loss.

Here, Lisa Moskovitz, RDN, dietitian and founder of The NY Nutrition Group, helps you identify red flags that indicate you’re not eating enough, plus offers guidance on how to determine the right number of calories you personally need for healthy, safe weight loss.


In general, women shouldn’t cut their calories below 1,200 a day and men should stay above 1,500 unless they’re under the supervision of a health care professional.

So let’s make sure that you’re eating enough calories. If you’re needing help, contact me or click on my link for your free consultation. Make it a great day!!!
