    It's not impossible. When I wrestled, I use to cut back to 1000 per day to cut weight.

    While not impossible, it IS unhealthy. I cut weight like that for one year. After that, I started wrestling one weight class above my weight. I found that I had a lot of room for growth, and I was never lacking in energy for a match.

    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    5800 Cals per day? What the hell? If I ate that much I'd
    be 325 and one huge mass of fat.

    Jeezus christ.
    let's talk about why fat-fu shall we?

    Your body just resting all day will take over 10 times that in calories. For instance someone who is 200 lbs needs 2000+ calories a day or they start losing weight.

    For about every 1800 -EXTRA- calories you consume you will gain a pound.

    Choose your ingredients wisely.

    ps: There are fluctuations in metabolic rate that can make the above figures higher and lower by a few hundred calories but 1000 calories a day isn't adequate for most people's fitness goals.
    Now or never.

    ^ I read protein is processed more slowly -- another reason why some theorize the Atkin's diet is fairly successful.

    1000 calories a day. He's likely still losing weight and on the road to anorexia.

    Most people underestimate their caloric intake.

    Just for a reference when Ronnie Coleman entered the Mr. Olympia he was at about 3% body fat so thats pretty damn low.
    I think you might want to check uut one of the sites on the net that will allow you to figure out your daily caloric intake. Its probably much higher then you really think.
    I'll try and find a link for you.
