Okay so looking at my last 3 days....I am buring like 2-2.5k more calories than I am intaking. So I tried to research online if thats even safe and there are so many different answers, one being I will die because my brain and kidneys will shut down. WTF?!!? I am eating alot of food and I think healthy food and balancing stuff. Maybe I am missing something? I am doing moderate exercise since I am so out of shape so that I am not laid out in bed for days. I am slighty sore since monday and every day and workout throughout the day maybe 30mins to an hr and a half doing yoga or walking, gym light weight training. I would love to lose weight BUT more concentrated on the healthy side of this journey :/ but I surely dont want to die.....any info PLZ would greatly help TY

If you feel fine, then you are OK. Severe restrictions can be unhealthy so it's up to you to listen to how you feel and weigh that against your tolerance. Be careful with huge deficits, they can cause you to binge eat to regain that satiety.

There is anecdotal evidence that extreme low calorie diet coupled with high amounts of activity for overweight people can actually be detrimental to overall loss of fat. Try to make a sustainable change instead of balls out all at once. Also online activity calculators are ALWAYS high as far as energy expended.

based on your calorie expenditure and intake you are not close to doing anything detriemntal to yourself.

At you weight level you can quite easily cut up to 1000 cals a day, its more when you get closer to your ideal weight that you need to get down to about 4-500 cals under your daily intake

make sure you drink plenty of water and move a bit more every day but dont over do it at first

ITS A LONG JOURNEY!
