Eating Enough Calories

Wednesday, June 08, 2016

Ok so according to my profile I should try to eat like 2700 calories but I while I am eating healthier and more non processed foods achieving that goal is nearly impossible when I am not hungry throughout the day. I have tried different eating strategies but eating healthy doesn't seem to have an affect on my weight loss. I tend to lose more weight and keep it off by just exercising and eating normal meals. Does anyone have any suggestions that might help?

    GEEZ That's a ton of calories, isn't it? wow!!!! I would say eat until you are no longer hungry, and only eat when hungry. That's the premise I follow. I do Low Carb/ High Fat which keeps me "full and focused" for many hours. I do "Intermittent fasting" which is basically I skip breakfast because I'm not hungry. I don't IF every day, but most days. Some days I only eat one meal because that's all I want. Look up videos from Dr. jason fung about intermittent fasting and the benefits on your blood sugars, which will allow you to lose more weight.

    If you are "eating normal meals and exercising " and losing at a good pace, why are you trying to switch it up? You know your body and what it wants. The old saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" comes to mind! Until you stall, follow the cues of your body! (and a stall is defined as more than 4 weeks without any loss)

    If you're eating healthily you should eat to your appitite. If you've eaten all you want, don't carry on eating just to get your calories. Try eating little & often. Are you exercising because that can affect the amout of calories you should be having? It's a known fact that not eating enough can affect your weight loss, it is complicated. Why don't you send a message to a SparkCoach that's what they are there for.
