Over the past 2 months I've lost about 10 pounds by eating well (1200-1500 calories of clean eating), but haven't exercised for months! Grrr.
For the past month, a busy life (AND dating a new man!) sliced by daily caloric intake to sometimes as low as 500 calories, and usually not more than 1000 calories a day. I realize this is way counter-productive! In this time period, I lost another 2 pounds of course, but am feeling sooo yucky and still 10 pounds from my goal weight.
I realize to get to my goal weight and feel healthy and strong, I need to return to a proper calorie intake of up to 1500 calories a day AND add exercise.
For the past few days, I've upped my calorie intake and of course I've gained 2 pounds. My new man (who's a doc) was lecturing me about putting my body in starvation mode, and it turning everything I eat to hard-to-burn-off nutritional stores. I know he's right, sooo....
Any advice on recovering from calorie deficiency without gaining more weight? Is it possible to simultaneously recover from the calorie deficiency and keep moving toward my remaining 10 pound weight loss?
Can protein powder help?
