So yes, I'm quite aware that I am undereating and I'm trying to eat more. But it's so hard!!
Anyway, my question is what are some HEALTHY snacks and foods I can eat to reach my limit.
Also, if I walk my dog everyday (jog for 10-15 min) do weight lifting every other day, and pop pilates (30-60 mins) every other day, how many calories should I be eating?
Oh, yeah. I'm 162 pounds 5'6 and 15 years old.
Your BMR (the amount of calories that you need for bodily functions like breathing) is about 1700 so you should never never never eat below that. Considering you are a teenager and still growing and developing, you should really only aim to lose a pound per week. With your activity level, you probably burn 2500 to 3000 calories per day and should therefore eat 2000 to 2500 calories per day to lose a pound per week. You are MAJORLY undereating. Some calorie dense but healthy foods are avocado, olive oil, nut butters (peanut butter, almond butter, etc), cheese, cream sauces, salad dressing, etc. I'm sure other people will add to this list for me.
I want to get down to 150. Then, depending, I might go to 145-140-ish. What about you?
Oh, really? Wow, I didn't know. I've actually asked this kinda question before, and the answer I got was 1600-ish.
The reason I didn't follow their instructions was because I'm crazy, and I kept thinking Oh no! I'll totally gain pounds! But I'm trying now.
Anyway thanks for the advice. And the food suggestions. :D
