Hi and welcome to WebMD,

You're posting on an Eating Disorders board so I'm wondering if there's more going on here than trying to achieve a healthy and needed weight loss....?

Either way, though, no, such a low calorie diet is not sustainable nor is it necessary to lose weight and keep it off. Consider discussing with your doctor and seeing a dietitian to find a workable plan for yourself.

And if a healthy weight loss is your goal and you are currently overweight, I encourage you to post on one or more of our Eating & Diet Communities .
You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
