Well every time I try to restrict my calories I tend to almost binge. Not catastrophic gorging etc but still overly big servings. Rather than 1200, 2200 cal. So I was reminded of another technique. Enter in the weight you want to be and eat that number of calories. No back filling for exercise or fiber calorie deductions. Just eat no more than the goal weight maintenance calories. Eventually you'll be that weight. Well it's feeling great. It's been four days still eating 3-4oz (21-28g) protist at three meals a day with a lite fourth meal after work. (I work late). I know the scale will take longer to drop that 25lbs but if is been doing this feeling good about my eating since last June at my most recent lowest weight I'd be at my goal by now rather than eating back up the 10lbs I've lost so many times. It's ridiculous.
So here I am. A kinder approach. Which is good. I am busy. I am stressed. I need to be kinder to myself so I can be kinder to my family and friends. If I torture me I risk taking it out in them.
