Absolutely yes! Back when I was eating a paleo diet and calorie restricting I lost weight to a point and then I couldn't seem to lose any more no matter what activities I did. I was trying to eat something insane like below 1500 calories and my body just stopped losing weight because it was starving. (I felt like I was going crazy craving carbs all the time!) As soon as I stopped doing cardio and stopped tracking calories, eating as much as I wanted to, my weight dropped immediately, the same week.

In my personal experience eating too little can halt your weight loss entirely or even cause you to gain weight. If I want to lose weight I actually need to eat as many calories as possible. That probably sounds counterintuitive but it works for me every time. Now if I want to lose weight and it's not happening, the first thing I do is up my calories and the weight drops off. I'd try eating more and see how it goes for you.

When you restrict your caloric intake to this level, cortisol tends to spike increasingly and cause water retention and stagnation of the immune/lymphatic system, leading to inflammation. It's not uncommon at all. Very frequently, in short term overfeeding after a long term starvation protocol in numerous experiments, subjects have been known to lose weight in the form of water retention.

That's perhaps why dehydration+lack of sleep+severe calorie restriction+stress is generally not an excellent combination.

i guess i'l try to eat as much as i used to before (2500-2600 cal) and see what changes!

Hi piripiri! Any good changes so far?

Hi !
 am actually experimenting now.
i have tracked my weight for  20 days on 2000-2100 calories, and i started yesterday (and i will for the next 20 days) monitor my weight at 2500calories.

i see that you have asked the same question to other post.

will you write one yourself with the results of your questions?

it would be of help!
