It is difficult to set absolute bottom calorie levels, because everyone has different body composition and activity levels. Health authorities do set some baselines - these are 1800 calories per day for men and 1200 calories per day for women. This may not be true person to person depending on someone who is tall, muscular, and exercises a lot. Absolute levels don't work - but do give us a starting point. When reducing calories, try not to lower your calorie intake by more than 1000 calories below maintenance. Doing so may invoke the bodies starvation response which can lead to adverse dieting effect. Try to gradually lower calories. A sudden drop (such as 500 calories or more) can cause your metabolism to slow. Too low calorie intake lead to reduced metabolic rate, catabolism i.e muscle mass is broken down for energy, sluggishness, nutritional deficiencies, fatigue and often irritability. 1200 calorie diet 1200 calories per day is about the lowest a woman should go when aiming for fat loss. For men this figure is around the 1800 calorie mark. The following diet plans are just given as examples. You can replace these food items with conviniently available food in your region with equivalent calorific value in addition to increasing/decreasing the quantity to achieve desired number of calories.

I found this post very informative. The diet plans are equally impressive, and easy to follow. Are you a dietitian by any chance?

This sounds very helpful if you want to lose weight but it is important to bear in mind that you have to adjust the level of food that you take in if you're bigger or not. For example i am 6'4" so I need more calories just to maintain my energy levels. But this is very helpful info. Thanks for posting it!
