I'm still allowing the last 5-7lbs to come off slowly. I'm eating maintenance calories (1800 per day) as if I wasn't exercising and so far the exercise seems to be giving me a slow weight loss. Not sure if I will see a loss from the last couple of weeks because I have been so hungry. I usually eat 3 meals and 3 snacks.
I tried seeing what calories Spark recommend with my exercise but it's only about 200 more per day, I doubt that's enough to stop this hunger, and I don't really want to stop the weight loss altogether - not just yet anyway.
I eat a good amount of protein and I'm always on the upper end of fibre, sometimes over. I avoid processed foods as much as I can.
In a typical week my exercise is
Monday: 30mins stationary bike morning, 30 mins running evening
Tuesday: 30mins stationary bike morning
Wednesday: 1 hour Martial arts class
Thursday: 30mins stationary bike morning, 30 mins running evening
Friday: 30mins stationary bike morning
Saturday: 1-2 hours running
Sunday: 2 hours martial arts class
Plus I usually get in 30-60 mins walking most days
I know it's quite a lot, but really is that only worth 200 extra cals a day or am I missing something here, any ideas on how to stop this hunger would be great.
Is there anyone else who exercises a similar amount and can share what/how much they eat?
