    how come I'm not dead?

    My BMR is around 2200 and I only take in like 1700 calories on a good day...I'm sort of confused.

    If you don't reach your BMR which is the required calories to keep you alive then your body will start to break down fat/muscle to get it's needed calories and will continue to do that until your body falls apart.

    But you need to make sure your counting every single calorie, from absolutely everything you eat and drink.

    If it's not air or plain water it's got calories.
