Thank you for your question. I can understand your frustration at eating so little and yet losing weight so slowly, but unfortunately sometimes this is the full case with many people and is just the way their metabolism reacts. I am a little concerned if you are regularly eating less than 1000 calories a day, as you might not be getting all the nutrients your body needs to function efficiently.
And this may include burning away fat! Cutting your calories too low can be considered a fake economy sometimes, as the body can respond by ‘hanging on’ to calories, as it isn’t sure when it shall get some good more. You may want to try increasing your calorific intake slightly (say by 100-200 calories each day) to see if this has an optimistic effect on your weight loss?
I would encourage you to eat 3 regular meals a day, your day as this retains your metabolism thrilled throughout. Also, ensure that you have lots of variety in your diet. A mistake a lot of dieters make is to stick to a little selection of the same foods, which the body becomes used to.

Keep what you eat varied and you’ll get a broader collection of vitamins and minerals, not to mention more interesting meals! Apart from this, make sure you eat your 5-a-day veg and fruit, drink a lot of water during the day, and make sure each meal has some low fat protein and complicated sugars (e.g. wholemeal breads or brown grain) rather than processed carbohydrates. Don’t become disheartened if your bodyweight reduction is sluggish even. Stay with it and you ought to reach your target in the end!
Bear in mind that substrates and hormones can socialize and change certain processes. This is commonly seen when a high glycemic index CHO food is ingested before exercise. In this full case, the ensuing spike in blood sugar elicits a rise in insulin levels. As a total result, fat mobilization is reduced (due to insulins anabolic influence on fat) forcing the muscle to use additional muscle glycogen.
This is not desired if you are looking to sustain a given exercise strength for prolonged intervals. The common misconception is that to lose the excess weight you must stay in your excess fat burning zone. There is some truth to the statement Eventhough, it is inaccurate in the sense that reducing your weight is about burning as many calories as possible.
As such, exercising at an increased strength for moderate durations would be most effective in burning calories. It’s important to remember a calorie is a calorie regardless of its source and since 1 lb of body fat is the same as 3500 calories from fat, calorie-reducing exercise regimens are most suitable for those seeking to lose weight.
