This way the chances of malnutrition are less, just make sure you eat enough vegetables, fruit and protein. I'd suggest you find a way to eat that can be sustained for life, because if you do a crash diet and then start eating normally, you will very likely gain weight again.
    I'm not intending to crash diet, I think 1200/1300 calories isn't too bad and I don't feel I need to go over that. I get what you mean though, many people binge after a diet and I've had cravings but I've resisted them thus far.

    Personally 1200-1300 is a good amount for me too for weight loss. However, the point is to calculate according to your needs. If your needs were say, 2500-3000kcal normally and you would go to 1200 well it would be a bit drastic. If 1200-1300 kcals satisfy your hunger it's a good sign that you're eating okay (as long as it's balanced), assuming you're not taking appetite suppressants like coffee or tobacco.

    Nope don't smoke nor drink caffeinated drinks usually. Sometimes have decaf but that's still not good I guess. But thanks for your advice :)

    Dat pose running.

    Basically its running on the balls of your feet as opposed to heel striking on every step. Its the same way you would run without shoes; makes for less impact on the knees and allows your feet to work properly by using the fascia and small muscles in your feet as a spring.

    START SLOW! It can take time to re-train your feet to get used to it.

    USDA recommends an average of 12 calories per pound of current body weight to maintain that weight with a sedentary lifestyle. One pound of body fat is something like 3500 calories of stored energy. So if you ate ten calories per pound of body weight for example and you weighted 200 then if you ate 200x10=2000 calories then that would be a 400 calorie deficit and you'd lose 2lbs a month. You'd need to fine tune it to suit your physiology.

    Also if you derived around 45% of your calories from protein then you'd lose weight faster.

    If you planned on designing a training program that incorporated them, then sure :)

    I guess the questions I have is, what are your goals? Improve cardio? Increase strength? Lose weight? And what of those are the top priorities?

    I'd like to become stronger and lose weight, for cardio I prefer walking since I live on a hill so it's easy to do a good workout just by walking the dog. I thought that kettlebell is a good alternative to do squats and deadlifts because I don't have room for a bar. So I'm thinking of getting a ~15kg to do those exercises at home and maybe a lighter one to do classic kettlebell exercises.

    There are a ton of at home exercises you can do with a 15kg kettlebell. Potentially working out... everything really. Personal favorites are figure 8's, front squats, and get-up's. As far as cardio, if you've got a hill, work your way towards sprinting up that sucker. Not sure how big the hill is, but I like to make a game of it. Divide the hill from bottom to top into 4 and sprint to the first quarter point, jog back, sprint to the second, and so on. Once you make it to the top, walk down and take a rest. See if you feel like doing another set after that or not.

    Just a recommendation, sprinting is great for losing weight.
