The high level of cardio may be making your body more inflamed, and this hurts the lungs -thus the asthma increase...Try alternating in some weight training days. Spark people has a great program for that.
PS To my old SP friends - It's been a very rough journey... My beloved, healthy, athletic, tall, dark and handsome husband died in August 2012 from a very aggressive cancer... In the many months caring for him I was stressed and didn't "care" anymore, and put back on 30 pounds I had just finished losing... And then I gained even more...
You might try the calorie cycling and see if that would help you out. I know that I have been wanting to eat more for some reason too and wonder if its because I taking my relief inhaler more. I try to eat alot of yogurt to help fill full and pineapple too. I also will take a few naps to keep me from eating so much too. That is about the only way to control for me somedays. Hang in there and maybe it will get better for you.

I'm starving! I changed my workout goals to 5 days, 30 minute high intense aerobics that burns 500 calories and when I entered it into my fitness area it knocked my calories down to 1400 to 1750. I eat well but my stomach growls so and sometimes I get light headed from being hungry. My BMR is 3303 so if my intake is 1400-1750 that is a 1903-1553 calorie deficit. What do I do? How do I fix this?
Also, my asthma has been flared up during this time to. I can't figure that one out either. :(
