I have a question that hopefully you can all help me with! I have been eating healthy and exercising for a little over a month now, and I find that lately I'm not very hungry. There's been more than one day where I've logged my food on SparkPeople, and realized that I didn't even hit my minimum calories for the day, because I haven't been hungry enough.
On the one hand, I was excited about this because usually I am obsessed with food, and after eating one meal I'm already planning the next one. So, it makes me happy that I'm dealing with stress by means other than eating. However, I've been barely losing any weight for about 6 weeks now, and I'm worried that this is because of a slowed down metabolism. How can I know for sure? And if so, how can I jumpstart my metabolism again? I exercise 6 days a week with one rest day, alternating days between strength training and cardio.
If it makes any difference, I'm anemic and have had to double my iron and b12 supplements recently because they weren't helping at all. If my blood work doesn't improve in a month, we are looking into doing b12 and iron injections to see if I absorb those better. :( Could this have anything to do with it?
Sorry for all the questions! Hoping someone out there can help me. :)
