I don't know either... I just about what might cause an upset stomach, and for some reason it seemed like the melted cheese (perhaps because of the grease the tends to appear) might have the effect when regular cheese doesn't.  Or maybe it isn't the meltiness, but the quantity of cheese consumed at once?

Is the pizza from the same place each time? Have you tried getting pizza elsewhere, or making your own?

Any reason to think it's the dough, not the cheese or sauce?

What is your height and weight?

If your BMR is 2100, you should not be eating 1200 calories, and you certainly don't need to burn 2000 calories through exercise to lose weight. You are setting yourself up for failure by trying to eat too little and burn too much, rather than taking a more moderate, but sustainable method.

Is there any chance that some of those things might be hidden in your food, and you aren't aware?

If not, it sounds like you don't have a problem with those foods, which might mean there is another food causing the problem, or it isn't a diet related issue.

I hope someone is able to help you figure it out. That sounds horrible to have to go through.

This is next on my must try list.

Thanks A-girl!

You need to find milk that's pasteurized under a certain temperature (I forget exactly what it is but I think it's about 170).  We didn't have much luck finding any in Maryland.  Organic stuff is usually ultrapasteurized (which is usually over 200 degrees).  The regular milk from Giant worked sometimes.

Check this list - maybe one of these farms has milk sold at a local store for you, bbj.

Your BMR is approximately 1500 - you should eat at least that much.

1. Stop doing things like eating egg whites, when there are perfectly good egg yolks to be had (that is: eat the whole egg, not just part of it).  Your coach is right when he says you aren't eating enough. So eat more. Fat has more calories per gram, making it a great way to get more calories without feeling stuffed.

2. I would ditch the upper/lower split in favor of Starting Strength

@Cajun, I didn't realize they'd expanded all the way down there!

Market Basket has been down here for ages. There are several locations. One is famous for store made smoked sausages and boudin. Another is famous for their apple pie. The pies used to be made in Pyrex pie plates and you pay $5 for deposit of each plate. Well let's put it this way, there is a pile of 20 such plates at my house and we use them for every thing.

I'm not sure they are the same company. Market Basket (at least the one featured) Evolved from a grocery chain originally named DeMoulas after the family that founded the chain. They've typically only operated in the Northeast.

According to Wikipedia, they are completely different companies.

The problem is that you are still in the mindset that you have to lose weight.

2500 calories a day doesn't sound very high, especially for someone who is young, working two jobs, walks a ton, and exercising.

I'm assuming that you are aiming to eat a lot less, which is triggering the binges. If you didn't try to eat a restricted level of calories, how much would you eat naturally?

In order to burn just carbs while "Waiting Phase 1"- think REALLY fast thoughts- over and over- taking a 10 sec break every minute but remember during that break- think nothing.

It works. For more information- Use your thoughts to think about contacting me. I will use my thoughts to think about contacting you back. #IveGotSwampLandInTheDesertToSellToo

;)

I use this time to post in the lounge......

That explains so much.

I think duff's response to you almost 2 years ago, when you were pursuing the same low weight, is probably the answer:

 Original Post by michaelduff:


I'll be blunt.

You aren't over fat, you are undermuscled.  You are currently at a low bodyweight and there is no reason to choose another lower arbitrary number.

Its symptomatic of people who do lots of cardio to get down to a low bodyweight.

In the FAQs there is a list of resistance training programs - you should pick and try one of them and not lose any more weight.

Stop trying to reach 115, and pick a new goal. As liseey said, you are probably not eating enough.

Maintaining How much do you mantain on? Jul 21 2014

Probably average about 2000.

Typical day for me is:

Breakfast - 2 cinnamon raisin english muffins w/ butter

Snack - oatnut bread with peanut butter

Lunch - leftovers from last night's dinner

Snack - yogurt with rice krispies

Dinner - meat/starch/veggie

Dessert - dark chocolate bar (<1/4 of a bar) or small bowl of ice cream

Ugh :/ How long does it take (about) to speed up? I ate more yesterday (probably 1500cal) and I am up SEVEN pounds this morning...135. I don't see how I can do it if it carries on like this. 

7 lbs of fat = 24,500 calories.

Surely you can see that you didn't eat 24,500 over your maintenance yesterday. Therefore, you didn't gain 7lbs of fat.

Maybe stay off the scale for a while.
