That's just ridiculous. Over-dieting is just as devestating to your health as being overweight. Your doctor is probably worried because you're losing muscle mass at this point instead of fat...

Hi there -

Please be honest with your doctor. Eating only 300-500 calories is very, very dangerous, and is a sign that you are very sick. We are going to move this to our Eating Disorders Community so you can get support there.

We wish you the best,

Emily

Hello, new to the community but was attracted to this post. I've done the same thing:-/ it was so easy losing massive amounts of weight but I was so weak and grumpy and it seemed liked anytime I ate anythingy my body clung to the fat more. Your body may soon think its in starvation mode and do the same thing that happen to me. Be excited about losing weight but be careful losing it so fast. My weight came back just as fast and with vengeance
