My recommended amount is 1600 calories a day for weight loss. I began a log to really see what I put in my mouth. The first day was approx 1800, the second - 2300 approx, and the third - almost 3000. As you can probably see there is something not right here.
I can do all the exercise I want but if I am going around eating 3000 calories it's just not going to work. But how do I consume just 1600 calories and still feel okay? I have hypoglycemia so my body kinda freaks out if it gets low in sugars. So, what do I do here?
I've been looking on Spark People for the answers.
This article states that an increase of healthy protein leads to longer satiety. www.sparkpeople.com/reso
This article states that there are certain percentages that need to be reached. Carbohydrates 40-65% Proteins 10-35% Fats 20-35%
This article talks about hypoglycemia and diabetes. I never knew that milk could stop hypoglycemia in it's tracks!
All these ideas are great and might help me on my way to a healthy body and way of living. I need to quit going from hypoglycemia to calorie overload!
