I will camp out and see how it goes. If need be, I'll go down in calories and see why happens. I took a 4 day break last week for a friends wedding. And it didn't do much damage - and I am possibly going back down again.
Thank you all for the advice!

Is 700 or 800 really all that low for you? I mean if your bmr is just 1330 as you say then going that low would only be about a 500 calorie deficit before working out. And even if your activity got you to say 1800 that's still a deficit of 1000 which is something you would see recommended.
As a matter of fact from the rest of the book that I linked an excerpt to earlier it is recommended to go that low for a short time.
