Hi all, Since begining the application process in Sept I realised I would have to loose weight. Before applying, I weighed in at 16st 3lbs. My height is smack on 6 foot, medium/large build. Before my medical in november, I had got it down to 15st 1lb. This weight loss was due to cutting out all the crap, and a bit more excerise that my weekly bike shenanigans (doing silly things on two wheels, not much cardio). At this point I think my calorie intake was around 2000-2200 a day. Mid december, I cut my calorie intake down to 1500, whilst visiting the gym twice a week just doing cardio. Come christmas I weighed in at 14st 8lbs. Since the start of last week, I began visting the gym 4 times a week and doing more of a mix of cardio and weight training. I cut a few things out of my diet (more crap) and replaced it with taking whey protein supplements as I felt my low calorie diet was not getting enough protein. Now, that rather large intro has led to this question. Is 1500 calories a day (including whey) to small an amount? I'm starting to think that I may be stumping developing my fittness by having so few calories.
