I did a 1200 calorie one day FF a long time ago. I was very curious to know if the appetite suppression would see me through. I am a guy, 6 foot tall and at the time I think I was 210 or 220.

I did get hungry but nothing I couldn't handle. I didn't feel desperate and starved which surprised me to no end having been a life long high carber with the high carb hunger that goes with that sort of eating.

I just ate one stick of cheese every two or three hours.

1000 calories is fine. The way i see it: if you're getting all the micro-nutrients like iron, calcium, Vit A, B, C, D, E, ... etc. As well as getting sufficient protein to avoid muscle loss (around 40g- 100g depending on your body and activity), then you're healthy.
The only real issue is what diet you're able to sustain long enough to get results. It doesn't matter what diet you're on your system will adjust and change while you're on it. you will have to re-evaluate every so often. But if it works for you, and your doctor approves, then what's the problem?

My doctor OK'ed a 3000kJ (aprox 700cal) diet. But that was 2 years and 16kg ago. i doubt she'd approve of the same diet now. so i aim between 700cal and 1000cal and try not to get too cut when i go a bit over.
But to be honest at 700cal i can reliably lose weight (about a kilo per week). at 1000 or over it goes static or i put on weight.

Do what works for you and don't get too worried over what works for others.

I've been an Atkins follower for 10 years. I've helped a lot of people follow Atkins, too. I pride myself in having the most up-to-date health and nutrition information directly from Atkins. I know a lot about the Fat Fast.

Dr. Atkins used the Fat Fast only on extremely obese patients that could not START losing weight any other way--even after months of following his Atkins protocol correctly. The Fat Fast is NOT to be used to break a stall. You are only a candidate for the Fat Fast if you have not lost any inches OR weight at all. Furthermore, the Fat Fast is only to be done under the direct supervision of your doctor.

A true stall is no weight OR inches lost for at least 4 weeks. Are you measuring yourself?

Dr. Atkins said that it's extremely important that you get your body on a a perfectly even keel. By doing 'crash' diets, your body and metabolism are just going to get crazier and crazier. Losing weight is not a race--even with yourself. Trust the Atkins program and do it totally correctly. You will have LIFETIME success at keeping the weight off.
