Consider those dimensions for a moment. Divide Michael’s weight by the square of his height and you get a body-mass index of 15.6. Compare that with the minimum BMI of 18 recently decreed by the organizers of the Madrid Fashion Week—who cited the World Health Organization’s definition of 18.5 as the lower limit of healthy weight and offered medical assistance to any models who couldn’t meet it"

Don't be like that guy.
He clearly doesn't eat 1900kcals though. From eyeballing my food, (and I used to measure accurately) I eat about 20 blocks of protein, 5ish of carbs and 40ish fat a day and if you work it out, guess what? Way under 2000kcals.
