I am wanting to change from a ketosis enducing low calorie diet. I have lost over 50 lbs in 9 weeks but I am concerned about adverse health effects if I stay on this diet too long. Does anyone have any suggestions what I should change to that will allow me to safely eat more calories (than 600-800 per day) without gaining all the weight back?

Who or where did you ever get the info that LCHF was that low a calorie intake per day?
that is a very high loss for a short time.
you are only eating 1/2 what you should in a day... the weight loss will slow down but be sustainable.. and healthy..
If you enjoy the LC way of eating, I would suggest you go to the Atkins site or get the books and look at how that eating plan progresses from induction to slowly adding in more carbs and finally on to a life plan.
If it is a plant, eat it, if it comes from a plant, don't!

It is call the Bernstein Diet (in Canada). It is very restrictive and not practical for real life. Saying that, I accomplished what I wanted. I wanted to get to a weight that I would allow me to be more active again. I have started to jog and play hockey again. I have also learned that I was eating way too much before and way too much dairy and carbs. I was planning on eating around 1750-2000 calories per day. Does that seem about right to you?

I suggest trying Chris Powell Carb Cycling-- It will allow your body to adjust to eating again and boost your metabolism. You may want to ignore the scale until your body agjusts.

ah, yes, the Bernstein, B12 shots and a 500 cal day diet... good for quick loss but not really good for the long haul.

try this site , i find it the best for fixing a realistic RDI ...https://caloriecount.about.com/register
