If you count calories, what is your daily target for calorie intake for weight loss?
I lost about 25 pounds counting only carbs, then I hit a stall big time! Then I lost another 20 pounds doing extreme portion control and I ate carbs. I have been experimenting with low calorie low carb diet that I have designed myself (under 1,000 calories & carbs as few as possible way under 20g/day). I just would love to hear your input on this because there really isn't a lot of info about it out there. It seems people either do one or the other. Any input would be helpful and appreciated!
I am utterly convinced that low carb is what I need to do for my health and I still have a lot of weight to lose. My doctor wants me low carbing to help control the symptoms I have with my PCOS....horrible insulin resistance with terrible weight gain. I went from 135 to 225 at my heaviest and began "sweating sugar" on the back of my legs which looked like infected poison ivy (this is under control now). I am down to 180, but I've got to keep on going.
To add a crazy twist to all this...I want to get to 175 before I go all in on my exercise plan for two reasons. First, I just want to prove that a person CAN lose 50 pounds without extreme exercise. Second, exercise makes me hungrier....I mean like a demon! So, I have 5 pounds to go before I meet that 50 pound goal. Then, I'm getting serious about exercise. But I know ultimately, the diet is what makes the most difference.
Any thoughts from my cysters would be much appreciated!
