"Whichever diet program you choose, you just need to remember it's really all a numbers game. That's all it is. The bottom line is this: Most people burn about 2000-2400 calories per day just doing nothing (sitting, breathing, sleeping). If you are active or work out you probably burn closer to 3000 calories per day. Soooooo, if you only eat 1000 calories per day, you have a calorie deficit of about 2000 calories per day which would be about 14000 calories per week. For one pound of weight loss it takes 3500 calories. So 14000 calories divided by 3500 is 4 pounds of weight loss per week. If you work out or get more exercise it would probably be closer to 5 pounds per week. So realistically you could loose 20 pounds in one month. Do it for two months and you have lost 40 pounds!!"
So there you have it, along the lines of advice given out by most nutritionists, this individual is advocating 1000 calories a day, despite admitting a few lines earlier that most people use around 2000-3000 a day depending upon activity levels. While I personally think 2000-3000 is bit low for most, I'm sickened to see that they even go on to further suggest that you could widen the gap between what you need, and what you get by exercising more.
Regular readers will be well aware of how insane this is, however head over to my previous posts about calories to refresh your memory about why cutting the calories frequently isn't the answer.
It is all in the number, sadly just not these numbers.
