I agree with the other comments that too much calorie restriction backfires. I find that aiming for a 1-2 lb. per week weight loss (calories about 500 below daily needs) works best in the long run. Too low and we are fighting our body. Also, I find I don't stick to any eating program that isn't flexible enough to allow me to share some meals with family and friends. Social isolation isn't good for our emotional health.
