mikes calories while dieting???

ok i was blown away when i read that mikes calories when dieting where 1400 average?? does anyone have any input on this?? i mean the man lifted and did cardio like a madman, and thats a hell of a low dose of energy. when i diet i can lose on about 2500 calories without burning out. and if i go below that i usually can tell right away the adverse affects it has on my body.( i weigh about the same as mike when he started his dieting, 218, although mike was way more muscle) the only thing i can conclude is A: he was coming back from a layoff so his body would build muscle, and B: he was on juice. but still thats crazy, even if he was on juice, he cant make muscle and not burn fat on no calories like that.

I just finished reading the Heavy Duty Journal in which MM outlines a pre-contest diet he sued. There is some flucuation but 1400 average is about right.

It probably wasn′t necessary he go that low. As I recall though it was towards the end of his contest dieting, where you do have to start to get calories really low. So he probably could have kept calories higher, but had a longer dieting time.

Mike has even experimented with going as low as 500(!) calories a day! Later he stated that that was unhealthy and that no one should go below 1500 calories a day.

Also, – and I hope this doesn′t come as a shock to you – Mike admitted several times that he used both anabolic steroids and amphetamine, i.e., ′speed′, to keep up his energylevel while being on a strict diet (although he included his favorite food ice cream almost on a daily base, too). This was all done under a doctor′s supervision.
