27 year old male - 5ft 11in
7 Months ago i had a BMI of 40+ (21.5 stone).
After sticking to a 1000-1500 daily calorie intake (Counting & weighing everything) i have dropped to a BMI of 33.6 (17.4 stone).
I saw my GP before doing all this and he said that my BMI was that high i really didn't need to worry about burning muscle / under-eating (Within reason of course) as the shear excess of fat would just burn of first.
Now the BMI is down to 33.6 from 40+ i just want to update my understanding of safe / recommended deficits.
Is there a recognized calorie deficit vs BMI ratio that i can use to determine a target calorie deficit as my BMI carries on going down?
A graph with BMI on the X axis and recommended calorie deficit on Y axis would be perfect.
