Confused and Need a bit of nutrition advice
Wednesday, April 15, 2009
Now I have a problem that I am in desperate need of help with, and I kow all of you will have great advice so here it goes.
With my fitness being what it is my calories are 1370- 1630 I eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and 2 snacks I measure all my food and track every bite. I drink all my water 8 or 9 8oz glasses a day. Still I have to fight to get my minimum calories in and I found out yesterday that my BMR is 1613, so really I should be eating at the high end of my calories. I don;t kow how to get these calories in. I think maybe I am eating too healthy if that makes sense. Alot of no fat products. Even when I eat healthy fat it is low in calories so right now at 10:20& I am at 1241 calories and 24 for fat. I am sure I can eat another snack but I just don't see getting to 1613 calories or even lose without going over in sodium or carbs or protein. My sodium for the past couple of days has been through the roof which I know will show in the end. HELP . I am so confused. I want my metabolism to be awake and I beleive that until I meet my BMR it wont do that so then all of this is actually not going to work if I don;t get this figured out and I AM NOT QUITTING!! NEVER NEVER NEVER. I just want to do it right.
