    Well if you stick with it for awhile you will run into deficiencies. And yes your body will eventually lower your metabolism to reflect the intake of calories and most likely will regain the fat when you do raise calories back up.

    Low calorie diets dont work long term.

    Then don't panic.
    I believe that if your body started to need more food then it will tell you

    I think the main thing is to eat when you are hungry and until you are satisfied, and that amount may grow over time as you lose weight, etc.

    For right now, just take the time to observe what is happening and go from there.

    Also, it's not at all "too cold to be outside." I lived in PA and hiked out in the snow all the time -- even after the biggest snow storms. I still like to go to wintery places when I can and do a few hikes in the snow. It's pleasant.

    Well, I think I've made it clear that I don't MEAN to eat this little, but I cannot force myself to eat when I am not hungry.

    Very basically what happens on a low carb/low calorie diet.

    Body uses fat and lean mass to make up calories
    Body lowers metabolism and thyroid
    Hunger grows until you binge
    Body replenishes fat stores but not metabolism or lean mass
    You feel horrible about binging, and cycle starts over at a lower metabolism and lbm.
    Vicious cycle ensues.

    This is a documented fact. Im not saying that a short term calorie restriction will make this happen but give it long enough... Also vitamin/mineral deficiencies will happen. You simple cant get enough on 1000 calories, go ahead and type in your diet to a site like nutritiondata.com, you will not hit most RDA's.
