I think I have only reached 2000 calories once. I am enjoying listening to my body to see how it works and what it functions best on. When I lost weight before, I was eating clean, working out about 2 hours a day (running and aerobics/ST) 5 days a week and still was losing weight at 3500-4000 calories a day. I was training for a half marathon. My BMI dropped to like 14-15 I forget the number. My body fat was 13%. I DO NOT WANT TO GO THAT LOW AGAIN! Sure I was very healthy but I was too skinny.
I want to keep a healthy BMI, but have a lower body fat percentage, (between 18=24%) Right now at 26%.
But I know that I do need more crabs I need to eat more rice and such, since I took bagels out since first starting my carbs are less :( :( I have protein/fat and veggies/fruit every meal, carbs are harder.
As for the friend, I am not super close. I am just worried, and I don't think they will be receptive. I've tried telling them they need to fuel they're body properly and eat more than 1000-1100 calories a day even then she said thats TON of calories, so maybe with time I guess and prayers she'll hopefully see the light and want to eat healthy, not starve herself. Thanks and I agree it is a tough question.
