Not doing so great the last couple of days

Thursday, September 12, 2013

I've been doing okay on exercising, though not spectacular - but I've been struggling with overeating my calorie limit the last couple of days. Ugh.

It seems like I've been starving. emoticon Which I know can't be the case, but it's how I've been feeling anyway. I need to figure out some low calorie snacks that are filling. I normally don't snack, but that might help.

I'm going to work on staying within my calorie range today as much as possible!!!!!!!!!

Hope everyone is doing fantastic! Hugs all around.

    there are good suggestions here. I also suggest lots of water. and.... exercise!!! I find that helps suppress my appetite and take my mind off the food (at least temporarily). Think of it as killing two birds with one stone emoticon

    That is my biggest challenge too. It is so difficult to keep calories down within range. So are you toad or frog, because I'm the other one! emoticon

    You can do this. Just find your balance.

    I agree with all the protein comments. I have been struggling with the same feeling of wanting to eat EVERYTHING.

    For what it's worth, kiddo, I was really struggling too earlier this year. I finally decided I'd try an experiment, and significantly upped the protein intake. Bingo! I find it much easier to control my impulses and not overeat when I'm getting more protein. Even though the calorie count can start moving up (meaning I watch portion sizes) it still works far better to keep me on track.

    Sometimes when I get to feeling that way, it's because what I'm eating isn't satisfying what my body really wants. If I make sure to focus on protein, water, and sometimes salt and/or good fats, I notice that the hungry-all-the-time thing fades pretty quickly. For me, it tends to be caused by eating carbs. I eat carbs and I want more carbs. If I go a couple of days really focusing on the protein, I find things sort themselves out.

How are you doing in your protein/fat range on your tracker?
