Yes having an extra entree or shake is definitely needed if you are doing lots of exercise. the body needs the calories so it will continue to burn. I know funny huh but if your body feels like it is not getting enough it will start to hold on to the weight or you will lose muscle instead of fat.

So have that extra entree don't feel guilty Dr A & Nancy give it the big thumbs up.

Thanks FLKAIN and I've actually reset my Fitness Tracker from 45mins to 60mins and that set my caloric count higher to about 1,300cal which is something I can tolerate. I know we do not count calories on the SD. It still helps me to know that I am not eating over 1,500cal though!

Thanks emoticon

Last week I was hungry. Someone responded to one of my post and asked if I had increased my exercise. And I had. It didn't really register that I was actually exercising an extra 1/2 hour EVERY DAY! No wonder I was hungry. So I found a 180 calorie WW meal (Herb Chicken I think?). So yes you will be hungry with all that exercise. NO GUILT - eat an extra entree if your body asks for it.

I track my food and calories on Spark. My concern was going over 1,550cal. But, since you pointed out that we are not counting calories on the SD, then I feel a bit relieved and am still trying to be sensible.

emoticon thank you so much, that has really helped me and I am going to read chapter 3, Angie's story right now. I do not plan or am craving off plan foods, I am just hungry. I did eat another entree and made sure it was under 250cal although we are not counting them. I also had some fruit. Again, thanks so much...right on time!

Lily, I think you should eat the Entree, as a matter of fact I just ate an extra one myself. According to the book you don't count calories at all, so technically you can't go over on them. Look in chapter 3 of the book to Angie's story it addresses the extra exercise/ food issue.
No Guilt Allowed! this is your plan do what works for you, I also think that getting too hungry can cause one to go off the rails food wise.

Ladies,

Today, I jogged for 45mins, walked for 35 then went to Bikram (hot) Yoga tonight for an hour. Boy did I miss Bikram Yoga. Anyway, my concern is that I am hungry. I have burned a lot of calories today.

After yoga was over, I ate a banana and drank a cup of water. I have 25 calories left and I want an entree. I know that this is okay but I am beginning to feel guilt and bad if I were to eat an entree. What do I do? What do you do after a great day of calorie burning but are still hungry after 5 entrees/shakes?

Also, is this going to sabotage my weight loss numbers? I think this is my MAIN concern and where the "guilt" and "feeling bad" comes in...please help me here!

I can simplify my life and lighten my burdens by deciding realistically what I want to do and what I have time to do. (~_^)
