Hey everyone, first post!
So, I began using SparkTeens just recently. I am now exercising more and counting calories, etc. I am 5'10.5 and 275; my doctor says I am 20-30 lbs overweight. During the day I do a lot of walking across a community college campus, and I work out 3 days a week for 1-1.5 Hours at a time.
I have quit some of my old eating habits, which included overeating extremely unhealthy foods. Doing this, I now realize I do not need to eat massive amounts of food and healthy foods actually are better for me.
That being said, my doctor warned me to not under-eat, otherwise I will gain more weight rather than lose it. I am aware of this, but I keep coming up short of my calorie goals. Today I am about 800 calories under, average; I am just not hungry! Should I consume a snack/more food anyways so I don't gain more weight, or is it healthy to do so? This is the situation with and without exercise.
