1000 kcal per day is way below any recommendation I have ever read (not my area, but I thought most recommendations were at least 1500-2000 kcal/day for male weight loss, less for females). You don't want to end up skinny, you want to lose weight yet still be able to open a tin of beans without assistance.
Iv upped the calories slightly and haven't lost or gained any weight but i am running further and at the same pace or a bit faster. I did 6.5 miles in and 1 hour and 10 minuets at 5.6 mph what I think is quite good. Got stiff legs now !!!
Going to do my mile and a half tomorrow as today is circuit work today and hope its faster.
I think that you need to be aiming for a weight no greater than 76 kg (approx).
It might help you to know that your medical won't happen in January. The first major part of an application is the RT, which is a multiple choice test. Once you have taken that and obtained the score you need, there will be quite a long gap before your medical, certainly a few months and maybe longer, so slowly but surely should be your watchword when trying to lose weight. There is no need to be cutting back so drastically on food at the moment and if you continue over Christmas, you are going to have a miserable time of it. What is more, if you aren't eating enough, you will find that you don't perform as well as you might have wanted to when you are doing your written test and that would be a shame.
Tell us what you eat on a typical day, so that we can see what you are eating and advise.
PS AngryDoc is a real Doctor and gives excellent advice based on years of experience and training, so heed what he has to say.
- get up earlier (noone needs 10 hours sleep every night)
- eat a decent breakfast (museli, yoghurt, etc)
- eat a decent lunch (carbs and protein with water - not cola)
- eat a decent dinner (not a microwave meal where all the goodness is gone)
You're not eating properly at the mo, and what you are consuming is crap. It's not rocket science - when you wrote down what you ate did you think it sounded healthy?
