Qct 2011: 381 pounds
June 1st: 250
my body has slowed losing weight. I dont count calories, but im aware of what I put in my body. I feel like I need to eat more food. But its a double edge sword bcuz i dont want to eat too much food that i will gain weight.
what are good foods to eat to get past this starvation mode.
here are some more helpful info
activity level: I elliptical or treadmill 3 miles a day, every day and weight lift train every other day
The body after losing a certain amount of weight can need time to adjust or maintain for a while before it can start losing again. You can either trail maintenance or wait it out. But you don't count how do you know if you are under eating or at maintenance? Maybe it is time to calorie count (even just for a trail) to see if you are under eating or not, if you are, you will have to eat more, cause damaging you metabolism will only make things worse, isn't worth it.
Hope this helps :)
Sun, are you eating refined white carbs? That can keep your hunger going. Would you be able to add some beans, whole grain rice and veggies to replace some bread or pastry? What are you eating?
haha i avoid pasta / breads at all cost
here is an avg day
protein shake -350 ish cals
egg whites + sausage + onions = ??
snack- veggie chips - around 150
dinner- chicken breast
veggies (green beans + corn)
salad- lettuce + dressing (120 cal)
cereal - 300 cal
end of day ...
I only eat rice if im havign sushi and i havent had it in months. bread comes once in a while- like croutons on a salad if im eating out. same with crackers.
The cereal... but such a small amount shouldn't be a problem. Are you eating enough calories? Perhaps calorie tracking again for awhile would be good and upping your intake to BMR or even a bit more. It's not good (sustainable) to be hungry.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
