I am no expert, but it sounds like you are eating too little. When you do that your body thinks it starving and will start doing things to stay alive, like burning muscle for energy. It does this because muscle uses more energy and so if there is less muscle the body can survive on less calories. I would think you would do better long term eating something more like 2000 - 2500 calories a day.
