Cutting Calories
How many calories can I safely cut out of my 1500 calorie per day diet?

I'm assuming if you're looking to cut out calories, you're looking to lose fat. Remember that it's not JUST about the calories, but also the quality of those calories. So think about what's making up the calories you're eating. Is it 3 Big Mac's each day or is your diet loaded with fruits, veggies, lean protein, and healthy fats? If you're exercising regularly and eating great foods, I wouldn't suggest cutting out much because you want your body to get the nutrients it needs.

Eating less than 1500 calories a day is restrictive. Stick with that number at minimum and add exercise. Restricting is dieting which will lead to gaining weight back. DIETS DON'T WORK. Focus on eating foods you like in moderation, listening to your hunger fullness signals, and respecting your body as it is now. I recommend the book Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch as a way to model a healthy lifestyle and reach your healthy natural weight.

It is recommended that women go no lower than 1200 calories a day. Of course most people don't need to go that low to get results in a good amount of time. Exercising each day will also help cut calories without cutting more of them out of your food.

Finding out how many calories you can safely cut out of your diet depends on your weight, daily caloric intake and physical activity level.
