Body's Balancing Act

Friday, June 24, 2011

When I first started this most recent weight loss journey 3 months ago, I couldn't imagine eating under 1,800 calories a day. But, strangely, as I've been losing weight and increasing my exercise, I'm finding it a struggle to eat 1,500 calories a day. I'm not sure that going much below that is a good idea anyway. Maybe I could start adding more protein and an occasional glass of juice, which would boost my caloric intake.

    Thanks for your comment LCWELL123. Its good to know that I'm not alone in trying to eat up to my calorie range. Am not really sure what you meant about finding ways to eat more protein without adding the fat? Is it because of what you cook the protein in or add to it or don't remove the skin/excess fat from chicken/meat?

    I hear you. I mostly eat within my range of 1350-1750, but occasionally find myself a little below. One of the hard things for me to eat is protein. I need to find ways to eat that without adding the fat!
