Calories & Mental Issues

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Hey All. So I wanted to get some of your feedback on a few things. I have a major mental issue with food (as most of us on here seem to), and I was logging in my calories this morning and looking at what I have eaten and wondering why I feel so fat! I don't think all calories are equal so I have a hard time believe that weight loss is REALLY calories in vs calories out. I understand the theory behind it and have preached to to friends for years actually but the more I think about it how can someone eating 1,000 calories worth of pizza have the same results as someone eating 1,000 calories of fruits/veggies and lean proteins?

Tell me where I went wrong today people, I feel so bloated and fat!

Breakfast: 2 string cheese and a banana

snack #1: baked lays 1 oz

Lunch: Apple, salad with a lowfat parmesan ranch dressing (30 cals 2/tbsp), 1 cup campbells light soup

days total so far: 678 cals

and now I am blogigng because I feel like I ate an entire carton of teriyaki!!!! My food hasn't been perfect but I don't think I should feel this disgusting!!! i try to have a protein and complex carb at every meal/ has been meeting after meeting after meeting so i've been just grabbing out of my stash but what do you think people?!!!

    Along with the salt that others have mentioned, cheese and bananas can be very constipating.

    I agree with the other two - it's the salt. Drink a lot of water and hopefully it will flush out. In the meantime if you show a weight gain tomorrow - IT'S THE SALT.

    I have to agree with the other comment. Too much salt makes me feel the same way.

    seeing what you ate, i believe it could be the salt. at least that will make me feel the way you described. so check the salt content.
    keep on keeping on. you can do it!
