yea, that diet is too low, unless you are under a physicians guidance. It takes a woman 1500 calories a day just to keep her alive lying in bed all day doing nothing! The number of grams of protein sounds fine, since they don't really know still to this day how much is actually needed. (That comes from several sources) and Americans typically eat way too much protein.
Please be careful with that caloric number, and seek a nutritionist's advice or your primary provider.
Oh yeah, and on a positive note...exercise and weight training will help the weight fall off faster than diet alone! Also eating a very clean diet, eliminating all or most processed foods, sugar, added salt, and high fat foods will help you see your goals much faster, while doing what you are doing, with the veggies, fruits, grains, and legumes. Get rid of the white bread, and eat whole grains whenever you can. The extra fiber will help keep you fuller longer. Even make your own breads, then you know what goes into what you are eating.
The beginning of this yr, I eliminated dairy and eggs from my diet, and really became more strict with my diet (food intake), cooking everything I eat, making enough for leftovers, and also eliminated processed foods....I lost 4 more pounds. Getting rid of the cheese was the hardest thing, but I'm sure it was adding extra calories where I certainly didn't need them!
Good luck, losing weight isn't the easiest thing, but so worth it in the end!
