And no, a slice of fish and salad is a frequent meal for me, that is not "starving myself" by far. You could use a nutrition class yourself, m'dear.
I agree. Fish and a salad is a fine meal for anyone.
I often eat a green salad with a can of tuna for lunch, usually with a (teaspoonful) sprinkle of either crushed walnuts or sunflowers.
And I frequently eat cheeseburgers! Awesome! High five!
I have taken a nutrition class, honey bunches, and if you're pairing that with coffee for breakfast, and a small meal for dinner, I'm not even seeing 1200 calories, which is essentially starvation.
First of all 1200 calories a day is certainly not "starvation".
Many women eat that much per day in order to maintain a low to average/healthy weight.
However, having one meal a day (let's say lunch) that is just fish and a salad, along with a healthy/larger breakfast and dinner, would be more than 1200 calories per day in any case.
