More healthy fat is actually good. It slows digestion. Bready carbs and grains is what makes us fat.

Breastfeeding burns 500 calories per day. I breastfed for a year and couldn't keep my weight up - and was constantly hungry. My health visitor advised me to eat lots of high fat foods, which at the time was great - but now I'm paying for it after stopping breastfeeding and still craving cakes and biscuits! (I didn't have a sweet tooth at all before falling pregnant).

I get my 20 oz of vegetables in daily.. I can split my food up into early breakfast, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.. If hungry I never resort to snackish foods, just more solid food. 2 clementines is 70 calories and even lower than 100 calorie packs of snacks. I can have 4 during the night and not put on weight...

Just make sure your snacks are adequate--low-fat and healthy and get those calories up.

Maybe not uncommon, but I think that if she is ALWAYS STARVING she needs to do more.

Try matching up carbs with a protein at each meal even snacks up to 6 times a day. That should help.

Actually it is not uncommon to lift 5 or 6 days a week. i have been doing it for years. I have a trainer and we change up my program and goals regularly. currently I am doing a 5 day split... each muscle group is worked only once a week.

I split my muscle groups up. I usually only work 2 muscle groups a day that way they have about 3 days to recover before working them again.

Sometimes I do only get in 3 workouts a week, but I am so grumpy if I don't work out on most days.

I have to agree. 3 days a week lifting is plenty. I feel the only time someone would do more is if they were entering a bodybuilding competition and were extremely knowledgable (or had a trainer) two be VERY SELECT on which muscle groups were getting worked and on which days. For most of us though, I think three days is plenty. Either SPLIT workouts or three total body workouts, or even a combo.

I've never heard of lifting weights five days a week. I have heard of a MWF split or a MT-THF split. Your muscles need time to repair themselves.

Hmmm... I eat 1800-2000 calories a day already. I'm not breastfeeding either. I think you should probably be eating more like 2400 calories a day.

It's what we all go through - it's easier to see ways to help other people than it is to see what we need to do for ourselves.

I do end up eating, otherwise I know I will eventually cave and then I will eat junk. I eat plenty of protein and veggies and good fats.

For some odd reason it is so difficult for me to get it through to my head that I probably have to eat more than what I am. I would have no problem telling a client to eat more or eat different things, but with myself its a whole different story.

I still want to eat on the low end of calories even though I know that dos more harm than good. Although I've never been successful at not not eating, lol! Which, I guess is good emoticon

I know what needs to be done, sometimes its nice to hear it from others who understand, and will let me vent. The hubby can eat whatever and how much he wants without any worry, so he doesn't fully understand my issue.

Jennie - just an update... after checking your food/fitness tracker, you're definately not eating enough - you're good on getting enough protien with what you have recorded.

I realize it's only a couple of days, but if you're consistently around 1500-ish calories, and burning between 200-500 calories a workout, your only leaving your body with 1000-1300 calories to function.

And not sure the truth of it, but I've heard that breast feeding increases the metabolism.

I would increase your calories gradually to 1800-2000 (especially on your really active days). Keep up the amount of protein and maybe increase the fats a bit, and add in extra fiberous veggies (not seeing many green things aside from a salad over the last couple of days. :)

I agree, you need to eat adequate amounts of protein and healthy fats to feel satisfied.

Well... with that level of activity, are you actually eating enough?

What are you eating? Lots of protein, healthy fats and fiberous veggies? Or are you eating a lot of grains that can sort of fill you up but don't stick around very long?

Is your tummy grumbling? Is your energy dropping off? Do you have trouble focusing? You know, the typical signs of real hunger.

If that's the case, eat! :)

How do you all combat hunger? I wait mine out for quite a while and drink lots of water to see if I'm just feeling hungry for other reasons than being hungry. If I still feel it I'll eat. But I swear I'm hungry all the time. I know with weight training your metabolism is raised and causes you to be hungry. Its just frustrating, especially when there is still weight to lose.

I lift weights just about everyday, at least 5 days/week, plus cardio, mostly running/spin, and I'm still breastfeeding, so I know I have to eat a reasonable amount. But I want to eat ALL the time.
