I have been dieting lately and only consuming around 1,040 calories daily. My period stopped, and has been gone for around 4 months and i know that is the reason why. I upped my calories to aroud 1,500 daily. I read online that 1,040 is the right amount to eat if you are trying to loose weight for me height and weight (5 6 , 132 lbs) I was down to 126, and now eating more i am 132. My period still hasnt came back and i want to know what i can do to get it back. I hear it is dangerous for it to be gone this long. I want my period back but I do not want to gain any more weight. I want to be at 125.
