no, be careful not to go under 1200 a day, it will send your body into starvation mode and you wont loose any weight at all, in fact you might even gain it. But, Im no expert, i am just repeating what i have heard alot of ppl agree on on this site, so do consult someone who knows for sure like a nutritionist or your doctor!! good luck!

no- eating under 1200 calories will slow down your metabolism quicker. you should ideally stay between 1200-1500 calories daily and add exersize...
