If you're trying to lose weight, then experts recommend reducing calories to no less than 1,200 per day. However, this number is not sustainable for a long-term lifestyle change. One side effect of severely limiting calories is a lack of energy - which will have an impact on how much you exercise. In order to speed up metabolism, you have to build muscle, which burns more calories, even when your body is at rest. You'll certainly lose weight if you drastically cut calories, but research shows that people who exercise regularly keep the weight off longer.
