Wow, who'd have ever guessed that I of ALL people would have this problem?? This is really my FIRST time dieting. I say that lightly, as I've tried diets a zillion times before and always to no avail because my heart, mind, and definitely my tastebuds were just not in it.
But this time I have the mindset AND the want to lose weight. Over the last 5 days I've been learning EVERYTHING that I was never taught: how to eat healthier foods, what to look for nutritionally in foods, and what my body type actually needs to stay healthy and lose weight healthily.
Hence, my extreme issue: I CAN'T GET ENOUGH CALORIES!! I just do not have the heart to start eating crap foods again just to reach my daily calorie goal because for the first time in my life, I don't have those psycho cravings. I know I have to abstain from crap foods completely coz if I don't I'll seriously "fall off the band wagon." So how do I reach my goal of 1,450 calories per day, which is STILL less than I need to be eating to healthily lose weight?
I'm sorta having trouble eating now too because since last Monday I typically have anywhere from 300-800 calories PER DAY. This is my boyfriends way of dieting, and were dieting together, but I never realized just how unhealthy it is to starve yourself. I went to Complete Nutrition for the first time yesterday with a gf of mine and weighed in, and got the butt-chewing of a lifetime from the employee there for how little I was eating.
So cmon guys, help? I'm 5'6 and weigh (shh, no one tell!) 170. I need just over 1,500 calories a day at least because that's what my body burns naturally. That's not even including the exercise I'm doing now, 40 min a day (20 on treadmill, 20 on Xbox Biggest Loser). And sometimes go to Peak with my gf and get my butt seriously kicked for 3 hours. But I want to aim for only or at least 1,400 calories a day.
If it tastes good, spit it out.
